Afternoon parallel sessions (B) 1345 – 1500
Each of the sessions allows for questions and answers so there will be the opportunity to explore in more detail some of what comes up during the session itself. But remember – the UCD presenters are all colleagues of yours so they are only every a phone call or email away if you want to follow up with them after the event.
|Talks and presenters|
Session 1: Streamlining – making better easier
See how colleagues have used their imagination and technology to make processes easier and the colleagues they work with happier. What a wonderful win/win combination. This session showcases streamlining and creativity which makes the new possible and the old better…

|Session 2: Researching smarter together
The research community in UCD is wide, diverse and always evolving, with the same kind of variety and change to be seen in our broader environment too. This session looks at how we shape the research ecosystem in response: creating communities, responding to needs, building tools, leading the way.
|Talk 1: “Alone we stagger but together we stand: The Joint Research Network NMH & UCD working in partnership to reduce the theory and practice divide”
Mary Brosnan, Dr Barbara Coughlan, Sarah Cullen, Lucille Sheehy and Dr Denise O’Brien
Talk 2: “Fostering Research Impact at UCD: The Why, What and How”
Dr Ciara Leonard, Emma Fadden and Liam Cleere
|Session 3: Reaching out in new ways
When we look at our community of colleagues and students across the campus, sometimes we see distinct clusters that need particular supports or attention. Four areas show how they recognised a group with particular needs and came up with new ways of meeting them.
|Talk 1: “Collaboration and changing perspectives: an Agile journey in UCD Library”
Catherine Ryan, Joe Nankivell, Hayley Burke
Talk 2: “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success”: Supporting students with disabilities in their learning spaces on and off campus.
Dr Lisa Padden, Julie Tonge and Dr Phil Halligan
Talk 3: “Does more than it says on the tin: not just an online internship application system”
Dr Teresa Lee and Eibhlín Loughman
|Session 4: Explosive ideas
Sometimes a simple idea or basic need creates the unexpected and makes the unimagined possible. What happens when you draw the ‘peripheral’ into the mainstream, innovate in the undergraduate curriculum, mesh experts and expertise, or create a bees elective? This session is one way to find out.
|Talk 1: Open learning – a metaphor for mainstreaming and collaboration in UCD
Dr Jennifer Doyle and Dr Bairbre Fleming
Talk 2: EdTECx Series – Showcasing & supporting educational technology
Trish Mountjoy, Leone Gately
Talk 3: Working with bees and greens at Rosemount to produce smart honey
Dr Brian Tobin, Edmond Kirwan, Sorcha Mulcahy
Talk 4: Discovery modules – collaboration, creativity and interdisciplinary brought to the classroom
|Session 5: Using the right brain…
Location: Moore Auditorium
It may be one of the great cliches – right brain is ‘the arts and creativity’, the left brain is ‘logic and engineering’ – but find out what happens when you let the ‘right’ brain loose… when you move outside the tramlines and come at bigger things in a new way.
