Student teachers continue studies thanks to online technology

Students in Galway and elsewhere planning to pursue third-level studies in teaching should not be worried that the current COVID-19 restrictions will affect their career ambition.

That’s according to Hibernia College – one of the country’s foremost teacher-training colleges – which is welcoming its April 2020 class of over 270 student teachers.

The students are now undertaking a two-year Professional Masters in Primary and Post-Primary Education made possible by an interactive virtual format that replaces the need for traditional face-to-face contact.

In a statement released by the College, its President, Dr Seaìn Rowland, said: “Our experience in blended learning over the past 20 years has enabled us to move our classes seamlessly online, thereby ensuring that students are freed from the worry that their studies might be put on hold.

In addition, Hibernia has moved all open days and road shows for its Autumn 2020 enrolments to online webinars that Dr Rowland said have proven to be “a resounding success with record numbers attending in recent weeks.”
