I have considerable experience of teaching, both at the undergraduate and Master's level. My teaching focus is on EU, party, and Irish politics. In addition to developing traditional academic modules, I have also developed more applied modules on EU politics, focused on students working together to develop an ambitious project that improves engagement with EU policy-making (please see Engaging Brussels below). The consistently high module evaluations that I received for my work led to me being nominated for the Dermot McAleese Teaching Award in 2021. In addition, I also have experience of teaching research design at the PhD level, as I taught a guest seminar on advanced case selection for UCD's Qualitative Methods module. Please see the syllabi below:
