Open Seminar: What Makes a Good Teacher?

Although teaching is an age-old profession, the question of what makes a good teacher continues to attract considerable debate and discussion. This open seminar will critically question the skills, qualities and attributes of a “good” teacher for the 21st century learner. During the event, participants are invited to consider multiple, often competing, discourses on teaching and learning and to critically question the role of educators in a variety of learning and development contexts.

Contributors/Leaders

  • Dr Laura Costelloe, Education Programmes, National College of Ireland (Chair)
  • Mr Tomás Ó Ruairc, Director of the Irish Teaching Council
  • Dr Rose Rudnitski, Dean of Education, Mercy College, New York
  • Dr Leo Casey, Director of Learning & Teaching and Education Programmes, National College of Ireland

Location: NCI, Kelly Theatre
