This blog has been quiet for a while as I am currently engaged with lecturing online, which is a time-consuming and often stressful exercise, as there are so many elements completely beyond your control. I know that from a student perspective this is a really tough gig, and students (and their families) need all the help that we can give them.
With that in mind, I am developing a Discord site containing all manner of learning aids, lecture materials, and supplementary sources. Being a lawyer there is obviously a bias towards legal materials, but during my career, in addition to lecturing law students and before that legal practitioners , I have lectured students in many other disciplines, including academic skills and exam-writing techniques to first year students. I have also helped Leaving Cert students with grinds, and jobseekers with FETAC courses.
I am making all these materials available to be used by anybody and everybody. It is obviously an ongoing exercise / work in progress, hopefully getting bigger and more useful all the time.
If you could please spread the word to family and friends, or anyone that you know is currently at school, college, university, or doing an online upskilling course; that would be great.
In addition, if you have any such materials that have helped you or a family member in the past with your studies, please send them to me, and I can put them on the site, with an acknowledgement (if you want it) to the sender.
The invitation link to the site is:
Stay healthy and happy in these testing times.
