Biographical Details

I am a Lecturer in Religious Education specialising in the area of second-level education. I also teach modules at Masters level as well as at Doctoral level. I am the Director of the ICRE (Irish Centre for Religious Education).  I graduated from Mater Dei in 1987 and taught in two secondary schools in Dublin during which time I undertook postgraduate work in religious education at Boston College. I lectured in catechetics in St. Patrick's College, Maynooth from 2000-03 and in Religious Education Methodology in St. Catherine's College, Sion Hill, and NUIM. I have been involved in the supervision of teaching practice since 1998. In 2001 I became the joint coordinator of the LOGOS project, an online support service for teachers of Junior Certificate Religious Education. In 2003 I began teaching theology at MDI and was appointed lecturer in Religious Education in 2010. My PhD explored the question of what constitutes an appropriate religious education for future teachers of RE. I am a member of the Board of Members of CEIST as well as a Board Member of EFTRE (European Forum for Teachers of Religious Education) and a member of ISREV, REA and AULRE.
