Dr Katriona O’Sullivan
Lecturer, Maynooth University, Ireland
Dr Katriona O’Sullivan is a lecturer at Maynooth University, Ireland and is programme coordinator of the ‘Turn to Teaching’ project. This project aims to diversify teacher education by creating meaningful pathways into teaching for students coming from the most marginalised groups. Her research to-date has examined the role of alternative entry routes to higher education and she is currently researching the impact that the newly established foundation year in Oxford University has on student outcomes. She is also interested in how interventions can provide meaningful opportunities for under-represented groups to participation in elite professions and access to high status universities.
