Dr. Christine Horn

I'm teaching in the Entrepreneurship Programmes (Business Mathematics, Ethics). and in the Applied Psychhology Programme (Research Methods and Statistics, Advanced Research in Psychology). I'm also 4th year Tutor in the Applied Psychology programme. I'm a member of the IADT Teaching and Learning Committee and also the FACT Ethics Committee.

Research projects

My research interests include Mathematics Education, e-Learning and e-Assessment and Lifelong Learning. The recent MINT Project about the Mathematical Identity of students aimed to identify ways how experience with learning Mathematics can be harnessed to improve learning and development of mathematical, logical and critical thinking skills. The project involved academics from Trinity College, University Limerick, DCU (St.Patrick’s College Drumcondra) and Queens University Belfast (Stranmillis University College). It was funded by SCoTENS.
