While studying at the University of Limerick I was introduced to different theoretical views on how people learn and the factors influencing learning.

I looked at behavioural, cognitive and constructivist learning theories and how they apply to second level students, how motivation and the maintenance of a positive learning environment effects learning, and differences in learning and concepts of intelligence.


As such along with two other student teachers (Deborah Moore and Heather Sherry) I created an audio visual presentation about Maslow's theory of motivation and how it relates to young people studying art and design.
