Description:

Postgraduate Teaching Studentship

Context:
For the past ten years, the Centre for Language and Communication
Studies has been running extracurricular evening language modules for
several languages, based on the concept of learner autonomy and
incorporating the centre's expertise in the use of new technologies in
language teaching. Recently, the introduction of a Broad Curriculum
policy in Trinity College Dublin means that more and more students can
study extracurricular courses either as a replacement for courses
within their main subject area, or receive a bonus percentage which is
added to their end-of-year mark.

>From the coming academic year on, we will introduce Irish for
non-beginners courses. Learners in these courses will have the
equivalent of an Irish Leaving Certificate standard of Irish.


Job description

The applicant will:

- teach three extracurricular evening language courses a week in Irish
 for non-beginners (2 hours each)
- explore new approaches to Irish language teaching, particularly
 those involving new technologies.
- register for a PhD degree with the Centre for Language and
 Communication Studies, Trinity College Dublin, in the area of
 pedagogical applications of technology to the teaching of Irish,
 focussing on applications in speech technology which harness ongoing
 research at CLCS. 

Person specification:
- The person appointed should have a good undergraduate degree or
 equivalent qualification. He/she should have a native or
 near-native-speaker command of Irish. It is essential that the
 applicant has a strong interest in exploring and implementing new
 approaches to Irish language teaching and the use of new
 technologies in this context.
- The person appointed will enjoy working as part of a team and must
 have good communication skills with both students and colleagues in
 an international environment. He/she is expected to be motivated and
 to develop a capacity for independent working. The person appointed
 will receive appropriate support, both in teaching and research, by
 the CLCS as well as the Departments of Irish and Education.

Starting date:
The person appointed will start work on 1 September and continue for
three years.

A cover letter and CV with the names and contact details of three
referees should be sent to Dr Ailbhe N� Chasaide.

Position is open until filled.
