UCC Staff Awards 2013 Ceremony

Leadership Award - Professor Barry O’Sullivan, Head of Department, Computer Science & Director, Cork Constraint Computation Centre (4C)

The Selection Committee determined that Barry should be honoured with a Leadership Award on the basis of his outstanding achievements across all of the criteria for this award category, in particular, his outstanding contribution both within and outside UCC in terms of international impact, raising UCC’s profile and attracting substantial research funding to UCC; mentoring research teams and students; and founding and developing significant new initiatives. The Selection Committee noted the impact of his research work beyond academia, including its impact on business, the economy and society - locally, nationally and at the highest international level.

Picture shows Prof. Barry O'Sullivan accepting a Leadership Award from UCC President Murphy.

Exceptional Citizen Award - Dr Sabin Tabirca, Department of Computer Science

The Selection Committee determined that Sabin should be honoured with an Exceptional Citizen Award on the basis of his outstanding contribution in promoting the introduction of Computer Science to post primary schools. The Munster Programme Training (MPT) initiative, now in its 10th year, which he spear-headed and to which he contributes in a voluntary capacity (delivering lectures and workshops to post primary pupils on Saturdays) has had a hugely positive impact on the pupils who participated (over 650 to date). His exceptional outreach work, including not only MPT, but also a series of dedicated ICT workshops for post primary school teachers and his expert and enthusiastic support for student projects, serves not only to enhance UCC’s reputation and to attract students to UCC, but also to spread critical ICT skills in the wider community.

Dr John O'Mullane - Award for Research into Innovative Forms of Teaching

Self-regulation is a learning process, consisting of the development of a
set of constructive behaviours that affect learning.

Through a mutual interest in investigating how the application of coaching psychology, instructional contexts, teaching strategies and technology enhanced learning can amplify the student experience, bydeveloping students as self-regulated learners, Dr John O'Mullane of the Department of Computer Science, with colleagues from Department of Statistics, Medicine and School of Applied Psychology have come together.
