Biography

I have been a Lecturer at University College Dublin since 2000, and an Associate Professor since 2013. I am currently serving as Dean of Social Sciences in the UCD College of Social Sciences and Law (September 2015-August 2018).

My main areas of research are gender, the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), sociology of higher education and sociology of the media. I also teach qualitative research methods to graduate students and have a particular interest in the process of analysing qualitative data. 

I am currently working on two research projects '
Tweeting to #Repealthe8th: Challenging the legal regime and Irish attitudes to abortion?' and 'Students as co-creators of course materials: A case study'.  

I have recently completed an interdisciplinary project, involving 18 colleagues from across UCD 'Existing Research Output focused on Higher Education Teaching and Learning in Ireland' (funded by National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning in Higher Education). A copy can be accessed by clicking on publications The National Forum used the research identified in this systematic review to create an online searchable digital resource of Irish teaching and learning research  see http://eprints.teachingandlearning.ie/.

In 2007 I edited Contemporary Ireland: A Sociological Map, published by UCD Press which is being reissued as an ebook in 2016 with a new postscript.  I was a UCD Fellow in Teaching and Academic Development 2007-2009 which allowed me to develop my interest in SoTL, with a particular focus on the sociology classroom. I recently completed a research project titled 'Investigating links between attendance at small group sociology classes, student attainment and student motivation' (HS-E-10-190-OSullivan).

Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

As a teacher my goal is to facilitate student learning. My role is to create opportunities for active, experiential and collaborative learning. I do not assume that because I am teaching students are learning and so I use a variety of techniques to monitor what students are learning.
 

Enhancement of Teaching

I revise my modules on an ongoing basis, drawing on new pedagogic research, information and advice from workshops I have attended, mid-semester student feedback, student attendance data, and UCD module enhancement information. For example, in 2006-7 I redesigned SOC 20040, making use of some of the strategies outlined at a 2005 UCD T&L workshop. The aim was to address an orientation towards surface learning, focussed on the terminal examination. This problem was evident from low levels of student engagement, poor attendance at seminars and a higher failure rate than in other sociology modules. Short assignments were designed to accommodate different learning styles and formative feedback was given on each piece of work submitted. I continued to refine this model further over subsequent years. The initiative was successful: regular formative feedback saw the quality of student work improving each semester, student engagement at seminars was much better, student evaluations of the course were positive, the numbers of students achieving an A grade rose from 0 to 7% and the failure rate declined from 19% (2005-6), to 5% in 2007-8. I find mid-semester feedback essential for pinpointing ways I can enhance student learning for a particular cohort. I use the feedback to create a list of things that are working well, changes that I can implement immediately, and changes I will consider when revising the module. I report these back to the class, closing the feedback loop. I have found students welcome even small changes e.g. using more visual material in lectures.

Review and Enhancement of Curriculum

In 2011 I created a new module (SOC 40130) in response to a need identified at school and college level for graduate level training in qualitative research analysis. The GRIF provided funds for me to attend a NVivo workshop and to purchase the software. The module takes an innovative approach. Students learn how to use the latest qualitative software, an important and marketable skill. In their work they learn about qualitative data analysis either working with their own data, or with archived material from the UK ESDS Qualidata archive (launched in 2003) or the Irish Qualitative Data Archive (launched in 2010). This cutting edge approach capitalises on archived secondary data, a resource that constitutes a major development in both sociology, and qualitative research. The module introduces these resources and encourages students to consider using them in their dissertations and theses. Qualitative data is expensive and time consuming to collect and is often under-analysed. These new archives have huge potential for sociological research and are particularly useful for researching sensitive topics, hard to access populations and over-researched populations. For example the Growing Up in Ireland study, archived with the IQDA, consists of 120 interviews with 9 year old children and their parents, an invaluable resource for researchers. This new module can be seen to make an important contribution to developing and enhancing graduate education, a key goal of the UCD Education Strategy. Student feedback on the module has been very positive. A typical comment was 'I loved that it was a practical, hands-on course, teaching important skills for qualitative data analysis. The active discussions also showed me a new way to analyse interview scripts'. In 2013 I will do research to allow me examine the outcomes of this innovative approach in more detail.

Developing as a Teacher

I regularly attend key teaching and learning workshops and conferences, in Ireland, the UK and the USA. I have found these very useful for keeping up-to-date with innovative teaching and learning ideas. I have particularly benefited from attending the following workshops and conferences: *ERSC workshop on secondary data analysis, Cambridge University, June 2004. *ERSC workshop on PhD Supervision, Paul Atkinson and Sara Delamont, St Catherine's *College Oxford, July 2004. *CAQDAS NVivo 8, Introductory Workshop, University of Surrey, January 2010. *'Best Practice in the First College Year', Gardner and Barefoot, 29th FYE conference Denver Colorado, February 2010. *SoTL Commons Conference, March 2010 Georgia Southern University. *'Effective Teaching' Workshop, Professor Richard Felder UCD/ DRHEA May 2010. *Preconference T&L workshop, American Sociological Association Annual conference, Atlanta, August 2010 *Secondary Analysis of Qualitative Data, University of Leeds, April 2011. *ISSOTL Conference, Milwaukee, October 2011. I have used this knowledge to enhance my own modules and design new modules (e.g. SOC 40130). It has also guided me as a PhD supervisor and a doctoral studies panel member. Finally as school head of T&L I have drawn on this material in the orientation and support of sociology tutors, and to advise colleagues in my school on module assessments, seminars and 1st year issues.

Innovation & Leadership

I have used a SoTL approach to develop feasible solutions to T&L problems at UCD. This combination of an engaged problem-solving approach and a solid evidence base has provided the foundations for my role as a UCD leader in teaching and learning.
