Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Archaeology, University College Dublin, having been appointed in 2002 to expand the School's practical teaching skills and provide a specialism in early prehistory. 

Before arriving in Dublin I was based in Edinburgh, where I had completed my PhD (1998-2001) - a synthetic study of the Mesolithic in eastern Scotland under the supervision of Bill Finlayson and Ian Ralston. Before then, I had studied for an MA in Landscape Archaeology at the University of Sheffield (1995-1996) - a degree that served as a transition from an undergraduate focus on Classics and Ancient History (Univ. of Warwick, 1991-1994).

I was born in the south of England - and lived in Newbury, Berkshire for most of my childhood years. My secondary school chemistry teacher, Mr Froom, is a very well respected mesolithic archaeologist (e.g. Froom, R. 2005 Late Glacial Long Blade Sites in the Kennet Valley British Museum Press). I didn't really get on with Chemistry, and at the time had little interest in Archaeology: in fact, Roy Froom taught a class on Archaeology as part of Friday afternoon range of extra-curricular activities (for those of us that objected to joining the Cadet Forces). I elected to do the class on bricklaying instead...

Research

Research Interests

My primary research is on the early prehistoric archaeology of Ireland and Britain in European context. In particular, I focus on hunter-gatherers and the adoption of agriculture (Mesolithic & Neolithic). I have a range of research specialisms: e.g. stone tool analysis and landscape archaeology. Within the early prehistoric field, I am engaged in a number of site, or landscape, specific fieldwork projects; including inter-disciplinary projects examining the interplay between archaeology and landscape change over time; and numerous minor projects examining stone tools. I lead a cluster of research students in my field.

Research students

I am interested in supervising research students in:

- early prehistoric archaeology

- hunter-gatherers past or present

- material culture studies, especially stone tool analysis


     

Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

I was appointed in 2002 to expand the School's strength in teaching practical archaeological skills and provide expertise in early prehistoric archaeology. The emphasis on the practical underpins my teaching philosophy. I encourage students to actively participate in learning and engage critically and emotionally with their topic.
 

Enhancement of Teaching

I continually enhance and update my teaching. Archaeology is every changing: a new discovery can literally rewrite the lecture you've just given, yet alone one that was sat on the shelf from last year. One of the great pleasures of teaching human evolution to first year students (ARCH10020) is that, in most years I've done it, a major new find has been announced during the course. Whilst this means rewriting, and changing, it also demonstrates how little we do know, and how much more we have to find out. I utilise student feedback to enhance modules. Feedback is generally very positive, especially for the smaller groups of third year and MA modules. We've made numerous small changes on the basis of student feedback. ARCH10020 is a major first year module, taking place in the first semester, and as such, playing an important role in introducing students to University learning. The assessment structure reflects this, being broken down into small assessments which train students in how to produce an archaeological essay. This module has been refined over time, and following feedback, we have reduced the number of components in the assessment, whilst retaining a focus on the training aspect. The module has risen steadily in its overall feedback scores. ARCH20100 is our practical fieldwork module (and doesn¿t have on-line feedback). We've slowly expanded the field time in this module from one week to two, based on student's requests to have more time to practice field archaeology. This is now also supported by practicals running through the semester, linking the students into the post-excavation process. This is clearly strongly supported by the students and has clearly demonstrated its value in terms of their understanding of the subject.

Review and Enhancement of Curriculum

I have been substantially involved in review and enhancement of the curriculum at UCD. I served as Teaching and Learning Officer from 2006-2007 and played an important role in terms of the initial modularisation of our programmes. More recently, and running parallel with our successful Quality Review process, I served on a Curriculum Review working group (2010-2011) that substantially restructured our undergraduate programme around a core and stream principle. This rearrangement means that all archaeology students, no matter what degree programme, take similar cores subjects, and are encouraged to specialise via their options and electives, choosing one of four streams: the Prehistoric World, Historical Archaeology, Landscapes and Environments, and Material Culture. UCDs Horizons programme has massively increased choice for students, but it is recognised that clear advice on pathways is also required. Our new undergraduate system, backed up by simple visualisations which I designed, provides this support. A similar restructuring was applied to the taught Graduate Programmes, including H Dip, G Dip and MA. As discussed in my outline of my teaching philosophy, I try to include the real world into our modules and curriculum as much as possible. In 2011-2012 I began a collaboration with the UCD Careers Service, running a programme of seminars called "Archaeology and Employability", focusing on how students with an archaeological degree can best prepare themselves for seeking work (in archaeology or other subjects) after graduation. This seminar series, which did not count for modular credit, filled a gap in our programme and will run again in 2012-2013. We will review the series and consider whether to integrate this into the curriculum more closely.

Developing as a Teacher

When I began at UCD I undertook training programmes provided by the Centre for Teaching and Learning. I maintain an engagement with teaching archaeology through reading relevant materials (e.g. Burke, H. & Smith, C. 2007 Archaeology to Delight and Instruct: Active Learning in the University Classroom Left Coast Press, and HEA Subject Centre for Archaeology (http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/hca/archaeology). I also discuss teaching with colleagues, both in UCD and at other institutions. Serving as external examiner has been extremely helpful, as it demonstrates a series of other possible approaches. Alongside trying to develop my teaching skills I have been substantially involved in developing the teaching skills of young graduate scholars. I routinely advise PhD students to attend CTL courses, but support this through more archaeological advice. Part of teaching a large first year module is the need to train the tutors on the module: these are often PhD students, and some have had no previous teaching experience. Supporting these students includes training in marking essays as well as guidance on tutorial content. I actively encourage my PhD students to teach, often offering them a few lectures on a second/third year module. I observe these lectures and offer feedback.

Innovation & Leadership

I have displayed substantial innovation and leadership in teaching archaeology. I have played significant roles in curriculum reviews at all levels and consistently carried out teaching administration roles. In 2007 I was invited to address the Institute of Archaeologists Ireland on the challenges of teaching archaeology.I currently serve as external examiner for Masters at the University of York. In 2007 my innovation and leadership in teaching was recognised by the award of a UCD President's Teaching Fellowship.
