Hibernia College is committed to developing a research culture and ethos that permeates all aspects of the organisation. It aims to build research capacity among faculty and staff and to promote research activity. This will be accomplished through our research strategy, which is linked to the overarching College Strategic Plan/Mission and Vision and feeds into the Teaching and Learning Strategy and the overall philosophy underpinning programmes.

Exploring Project-Based Methods Using BLOSSOMS (Hibernia College and MIT)
The purpose of the study is to investigate the role of video lessons in the teaching and learning of mathematics at post-primary level. The study aims to implement and evaluate a teaching intervention based on the BLOSSOMS Initiative (Blended Open-Source Science or Math Studies), an MIT-sponsored programme founded in 2008.

The introduction of a research component to initial teacher education (ITE) by the Teaching Council was a welcome enhancement to the Professional Master of Education (PME) programme. Here at Hibernia College, we recognise that conducting research in an educational setting is an important aspect of every educator’s professional life in order to improve pedagogy and school practice. We have proudly disseminated some of the great work that our student-teachers have done and it can be viewed in the links below:
