Project Title: An Analysis of Agricultural Teachers Experience of their Role as Educators and Identification of Improvements to Better Prepare them for their Role

Description:
This project explores the role experienced by agricultural educators by investigating the strategic training needs of agricultural educators in Teagasc. To date the research has established there is a challenge across the Agricultural Colleges in Ireland in how teachers are trained to teach, in their motivations for the role, and their long-term desire to remain teaching. The research also identifies a need to provide educators with stronger supports when recruited, and throughout their career for development and progression.

Teagasc Supervisor: Mr. Frank Murphy, Head of Curriculum Development and Standards Unit

UCD Supervisor: Dr. Karen Keaveney, Lecturer in Rural Development in the School of Agriculture and Food Science

Location: Kildalton College, Piltown, Co Kilkenny
