Biographical Details

Aisling Twohill is a lecturer in Mathematics Education, in the School of STEM Education, Innovation and Global Studies. In 2012 Aisling was awarded the Michael Jordan Fellowship of St Patrick's College, and she held this position until September 2015.

Aisling completed her B.Ed and PG Dip Ed in St. Patrick’s College, Drumcondra, and spent twelve years teaching in primary school, where she developed a keen interest in supporting teachers in facilitating children's deep mathematical thinking. Her doctoral research examined the algebraic thinking of children attending primary school in Ireland, within the context of shape patterning. Her research interests encompass the role of shape patterning in children's developing thinking; and assessment of children's thinking through task-based interviews. Other interests include the complex interplay between theory and practice in teacher education, and interventions to stretch the thinking of all children.

Aisling teaches on all Mathematics Education modules of the BEd, PMEP and MEd programmes and is a year head on the BEd programme.
