We are developing a new module for SH233. I work on children’s fiction because I have been researching, translating and creating children's cultural products, as in oriented for or created by children - as per the UNESCO definition of children and young adults under 18 years of age.
During this summer and autumn, as the course is a Semester II module, I will embark on creating the shell and the learning materials for our course on Blackboard, including online assessments and rubrics. I will be creating the course in Spanish but since it is a second year module, I would like to be able to offer translations of the materials into English and captions of the videos that I will create and/or adapt and develop for this it.

I have been a Lecturer at NUI Galway since 2006. I hold a postgraduate masters of Education in English, and graduated with BA in English Philology at University of Valladolid, Spain. NUI Galway is also my alma mater as I graduated with an MA Spanish with a focus on translation here, only gaining a Ph.D. in Language Teaching and Learning later in 2013 with University of Valladolid, Spain.
"I'm very grateful for this grant. Getting financial support for the project will reinforce the link between my teaching approach and my research on children’s fiction."
