Outreach Activities

The Asia Trade Forum of the Irish Exporters Association and Smurfit Business School have entered into a mentoring partnership where students will work on a group project with a member company.  In response to the rapidly growing markets in Asia, a country from that region will be chosen. Other international markets may also be considered. The key focus of each project will be on entry strategies for a particular product / service into a particular international market. This is part of the Global Competitive Strategies module ( BMGT43490) which I teach.

Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

I would hope that I am an interesting, stimulating lecturer that encourages and motivates, and gets the best out of my students

 

Enhancement of Teaching

TO BE UPDATED I monitor very closely student feedback. I reflect deeply on how to improve the student learning experience. Whilst class size impacts, nonetheless, focused attention to assignment components can facilitate better student learning. Analysis of student feedback demonstrates an improvement in the last few years.

Review and Enhancement of Curriculum

I continuously update all lecture material and update and reconfigure all course outlines on an annual basis.

Developing as a Teacher

TO BE UPDATED I read extensively on my core modules to ensure I have a comprehensive command of my disciplines.

Innovation & Leadership

I feel I am open to change, dynamic, turn negatives into positives, emphasising solutions rather than problems, and focused on providing students with an intellectually engaging academic subject with strong applied skill development.
