Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

I have pioneered a form of Problem Based Learning in Civil Engineering Design. This involves asking groups of students to propose Scheme Designs to structural problems and to present them in class. The 'X-factor' style of discussion that follows is a signature feature of UCD's Civil and Structural Engineering graduates.
