Other Activities

Description
I produced a concert for the Hillary Clinton visit.
During a three day International conference in The Helix in June 2011, the main goal for the conference was to enhance the use of visual media in teaching, learning and creative inquiry. To achieve this I invited those who produced, used or want to use visual media in their practice, or who carry out research within this area. The conference framework was a combination of internationally known keynote speakers, parallel sessions and workshops along with an exciting social programme featuring Irish music and dance. DIVERSE LIVE was a creative initiative which required interviewing, choosing and training a television crew to broadcast various events from the conference live via the Web
I organized a concert as part of the 21 years of ACCESS in DCU. This involved auditioning students from the various access schools and working with chosen students to produce a a celebratory concert showcasing the talent in each of the participating schools.

Yvonne is particularly interested in promoting innovation, creativity and visual literacy in higher education as evident in her work as director of the research group Video LinkEd. With her vast experience in the music industry she has a special research interest in marrying the head and the heart in the academy to effect a much needed creative approach to education. She has worked at an international level in spearheading collaboration between DCU and the Global eSchools and Communities Initiative (GeSCI) in the development of the Graduate Diploma in Leadership Development in ICT and the Knowledge Society programme for African Leaders. Yvonne has carried out research and developed learning resources for the Cancer Awareness Programme which is being used in the SPHE Senior Cycle curriculum. She was the National Coordinator for the EU Competitiveness and Innovation project Inspiring Science Education (ISE) which involved the design and development of eLearning resources to make science education more imaginative for students.Yvonne was also involved in the Erasmus+ Play4Guidance project which aims to develop an entrepreneurial mindset in students through the use of innovative learning approaches and worked in collaboration with the School of Law and Government on the EU SUPRALAT which focused on practice oriented education. 

Currently Yvonne is involved in the following Erasmus+ projects:  KLabs4Kids, Eduhack and FRONTIERS Science which run until early 2022. These project involves collaboration with a number of partners across Europe.
