Project Members:

Orla Kelly, Dr. Susan Pike

This project aims to further develop the existing community garden on the DCU St Patrick’s Campus and to develop the use of outdoor spaces as a resource to enhance student engagement. This builds on the work on outdoor learning which the students experience across a number of modules and programmes. This project is led by Dr Susan Pike.

Dr Orla Kelly, School of STEM Education, Innovation and Global Studies, and colleagues from a number of schools in the DCU Institute of Education have been awarded funding under the DCU 2017 Quality Improvement and Development (QuID) Fund for this project.
