Teaching Activities

Teaching Interests

TEACHING HISTORY: I have been teaching since my graduation from U.C.C. in 1977.  This has included didactic lectures, tutorials, grand rounds, bedside teaching, outpatient clinical teaching, presentations and skills sessions.  Students have come from a broad range of backgrounds including medicine (paediatric, obstetrical and anaesthetic junior house doctors), nursing(paediatric, midwivery and public health), respiratory technologists, ambulance and other paramedical specialties.

TEACHING QUALIFICATIONS: Apart from my ‘on the job’ training over the years, I have completed the University of Alberta Teaching course for University staff (TIPP). Other formal teaching seminars include instructor courses for Advanced Trauma Life Support, Paediatric Advanced Life Support and the Neonatal Resuscitation Programme. Small skills groups and skills teaching are emphasized in the latter courses.
Teaching & Learning for Health Professionals: This course is designed for health care professionals of all disciplines, is interactive and learner-centered. Course content includes Adult Learning, Skills Teaching and other aspects of Medical Education.
