Podcast interviews with MSc staff and students



Participant backgrounds have been from diverse disciplines such as accountancy, architecture, biological sciences, childcare education, chemistry, computing, design, engineering, enterprise, hospitality management, language teaching, law, Montessori teachers, nursing, optometry, physics and social science. Participants from the public sector include those from the health services (both executives and practitioners) and from the private sector, there have been instructional designers, multimedia developers, accountants, solicitors, finance and insurance analysts, educational technologists and IT trainers. An important facet to the programme has been the inclusion of lecturers from the Apprentice Education sector across Ireland, where we have had successful participants drawn from the Institutes of Technology from construction skills, refrigeration, sheet metal work and electrical engineering.
