Project Title: Effective teaching and learning strategies with the potential to enhance sustainable farming knowledge and skillsets amongst Teagasc full-time agricultural students.

Overview: It is widely recognised that reconciling agricultural production with sustainable management of land and other natural resources is the major challenge for current and future agriculture systems. Orla’s research aims to identify teaching and learning approaches that are most likely to prove successful in engaging Teagasc full-time agricultural students and advancing their thinking and capabilities regarding the importance of sustainable farming approaches. Her research is expected to make recommendations on how to foster and embed new thinking and skillsets regarding environmental sustainability issues amongst young vocational agricultural learners.

Supervisors: James Maher (Teagasc) Dr Helen Sheridan (UCD)
