We, the students of UCC, are here first and foremost to get a good education.
Increasing class sizes, less tutorials, shrinking supports and poor lecturing all threatens the prospect of a good education. We need to work with the University Vice-President for Teaching and Learning to improve lecturing standards by properly monitoring lecturers and their ability to teach.
Having had some amazing lecturers in the UCC Economics Dept (and some awful ones too) – I know how University Lecturers can improve the quality of teaching and learning they provide by engaging with the courses available.
If elected Deputy President I will want to see mandatory teaching qualifications for all new lecturers and a plan to ensure all existing lecturers are qualified to teach.
