Staff and Researchers from the School of Education, NUIGalway contributed to the recent Teaching Council, FÉILTE 2016 event in RDS, Dublin on Saturday 1st Oct.  

The Researchmeet follows the standard Teachmeet format, with each presenter providing a 5-minute nano presentation on their research.  Subsequent to the presentations, presenters then moved to their display stands where they were available to engage with the FÉILTE audience further about their research.

Sorcha O'Toole presented on her research so far, as part of her PhD programme within Researchmeet on Enabling a professional identity in FE teachers and  the emerging importance of dialogue in developing practice.

Eilis Flanagan partook in the Researchmeet at this year’s FÉILTE.  She presented on her completed four-year doctoral study, which explored the design of technology-enhanced learning in English education.  Her presentation concentrated on the theoretical foundations and the iterative implementation of the Digital Ensemble approach to English teaching and assessment.   This approach integrates mobile technologies with collaborative, drama-based strategies to mobilise and augment embodied approaches to engaging with literature.   @EilisFlanagan
