Community Engagement Gains Award for NUI Galway Italian Course

Community Engagement Gains Award for NUI Galway Italian Course-image

Monday, 3 September 2007

One of the most recent service learning programmes to come on stream at NUI Galway has been awarded a prestigious European Award for Languages. The award-winning module 'Service Learning in Italian' sees third and fourth year students in the Arts Faculty teach Italian in local primary schools as part of their course. The European Award for Languages (also known as the Language Label) recognises creativity and innovation in improving the quality of language learning and teaching. Through the 'Service Learning in Italian' module, primary schools gain access supported language classes without requiring them to find extra funding or resources. Meanwhile, third-level students have an opportunity to practice their language and teaching skills, supporting wider links between the university and the community. Service learning is a relatively new phenomenon at third-level in Ireland, but has been well established in the US for many years. Rather than traditional lectures or university classes, the learning process happens through working with the wider community on a project or issue that links to the students' degree subject area. NUI Galway, with the support of its Community Knowledge Initiative, now has over a dozen courses with this specific civic dimension. Service learning is neither volunteering nor work-placement, but is a distinct approach to teaching and learning that is designed to be academically robust whilst also linked to community needs. The teaching method was first piloted at NUI Galway three years ago with Nursing students who worked in an AIDS hospice in Zambia and a hospital in Belize; and with Bio-medical and Mechanical Engineering students who developed a range of innovative tools and resources for disabled, elderly and others facing particular challenges in daily life. A range of service-learning modules are now available across faculties at the University. Dr. Anne O'Connor of the Italian Department at NUI Galway, who coordinated the 'Service Learning in Italian' pilot programme, commented, "We are thrilled to receive a European Award for Languages 2007. Our new module aims to foster positive attitudes towards language learning for all involved, both primary and third-level students. The module also develops links with the community, giving students the opportunity to exercise social responsibility. Primary school children who participate, range from ages six to ten and are taught in an interactive and enjoyable way." The European Award for Languages is coordinated by the European Commission and managed on a decentralised basis by each member state. The award is managed in Ireland by Léargas. The award will be presented at a special ceremony in Dublin on 26 September European Day of Languages. ENDS

Launch of Report on National Conference on Ethnic Minority Healthcare

Launch of Report on National Conference on Ethnic Minority Healthcare -image

Wednesday, 24 October 2007

The report of the second national HSE conference on ethnic minority health was launched at NUI Galway yesterday by Diane Nurse, National Planning Specialist, Social Inclusion, HSE. The conference, Participation of Ethnic Minority Communities in Primary Care Service Design, Planning and Delivery, took place in Galway in January of this year. The idea for the conference grew from an ongoing partnership between the Primary Care Department, HSE West, the Department of General Practice, NUI Galway and the Galway Refugee Support Group. The conference provided a forum to showcase examples of participatory approaches in research, service delivery and community health initiatives. Almost one fifth of the 150 delegates were ethnic minority community members, with the remainder drawn from statutory and non-statutory agencies. Speaking at the launch Diane Nurse of the HSE said: "It is clear that there is a growing awareness at European, national, regional, and local level that people affected by policy decisions have a right to be consulted about issues and decisions that affect their lives. Participation of ethnic minorities is not just an "add on". It is not down to individuals, individual projects or services. It comes through at national, regional and local level. It is informed and mandated by policy at government and organisational level. It is supported by a range of approaches including community development which has a lot to teach us in terms of participation. There are many examples to build upon and learn from. Participation strengthens and improves service for all of us. " The report identifies four key areas which featured strongly in presentations and group discussions and which conference delegates felt warranted particular consideration in the forthcoming National Intercultural Health Strategy and the implementation of the strategy thereafter. 1. GP services are the first point of contact with the health services for asylum seekers and ethnic minority communities. At this time many ethnic minority community members are having difficulty in general practice. Key recommendations are to improve the systems by which an asylum seeker 'finds' a GP and is 'accepted' on a GP list as a GMS patient. GP services need to be culturally appropriate with supports in place for both GP and patient (e.g. interpretation services and cultural competence training). 2. The mental health of asylum seekers is a cause for concern. For asylum seekers, mental health issues arising from experiences in their home countries are being compounded by experiences of direct provision accommodation and the prohibition on the right to work. Existing support services are either centrally based (i.e. Dublin), under resourced (e.g. Galway Rape Crisis Centre) or not always appropriate to the needs of individuals (e.g. psychiatric services for people requiring psychological services and supports). Appropriate psychological services should be in place around the country. 3. Language is a major barrier to effective healthcare for people from ethnic minority communities who have limited English. The main recommendation is for the development of a national interpretation service, staffed by trained interpreters and subject to on-going monitoring and evaluation. In addition, health information should be made available in a range of languages and individuals should be supported to attend English language classes as a longer term strategy. 4. Participatory approaches are strongly recommended as a suitable way of working for the development of culturally appropriate primary care services. The GMS modernization programme, training for GPs and other healthcare staff, and the development of an accredited and regulated interpretation service were just some of the service developments that would benefit from the 'voice' and 'expertise' of ethnic minority communities. At the same time, it was recommended that participatory approaches are developed and monitored in a critical manner. This report of conference proceedings has been sent to the HSE Social Inclusion Unit as a submission for the developing of the National Intercultural Health Strategy. The Intercultural Strategy aims to ensure that provision of health services is equal, accessible, culturally sensitive and appropriate in meeting the needs of minority ethnic communities. This includes improving access to health services, and reducing the risks of social exclusion and health inequalities experienced by minority ethnic groups, including travellers, asylum seekers, refugees and migrant workers.

Seminar on Foreign Policy Accountability at NUI Galway

Seminar on Foreign Policy Accountability at NUI Galway-image

Monday, 22 October 2007

A public lecture on the issue of Accountability in Foreign Policy and the role of Foreign Affairs Committees in delivering such accountability will be given on Thursday, 25 October, 2007 at NUI Galway by Michael D. Higgins T.D., President and Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs for the Labour Party and Adjunct Professor at NUI Galway. The free public event is part of the University's Community Knowledge Initiative (CKI) Keynote Seminar Series which seeks to address pertinent issues facing the wider national and international community. The seminar 'The Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs – Can it deliver accountability on Foreign Policy?' will be hosted in conjunction with the Irish Centre for Human Rights, where Michael is an Adjunct Professor. In his presentation, he will draw on his experience of the Irish Foreign Affairs Committee and also on some preliminary results from research he initiated into the working of similar committees across 17 European countries. According to Michael D. Higgins, "The recent Iraq War, its illegality, the rhetoric used to justify a pre-emptive strike, the misleading of Parliament and the international institutions, and above all, the tragic consequences that have flown from it, have raised the issue of the consequences of a gap between the moral concerns of a public, the actions of their Governments, and the response of their Parliaments". The seminar will question not only the classic question as to whether foreign policy should be accountable, but also whether it is even possible against the argument of some practitioners that foreign policy makers and their diplomatic agents must operate in a relatively secretive manner. Michael D. Higgins will give some examples to help illustrate the context in which Irish foreign policy decision making operates and to highlight some of the obstacles to accountability thrown up by this context. The seminar will be held in the Siobhán McKenna Theatre in the Arts Millennium Building at NUI Galway, from 1pm to 2pm. For further information, telephone the CKI office on 091 493823. -ends-

Monday, 22 October 2007

NUI Galway will confer three Honorary MA Degrees this week on Eric Elwood, for his contribution to Connacht Rugby; Tom Tuohy, for his voluntary contribution as coach to NUI Galway Boat Club; Tomás Ó Tuathail, for his contribution to Irish language promotion and community work in Tourmakeady, Co. Mayo; and an Honorary MSc Degree on Alasdar Mac Cana, for his contribution of over 20 years in the practical training of scientists in the Department of Physics and in the Education Department of NUI Galway. The honorary ceremonies will take place Monday 22, Tuesday 23 and Thursday 25 October, 2007, in conjunction with the Autumn Conferring Ceremonies which will see the graduation of over 4,000 students. Eric Elwood will be recognised for his contribution to rugby in Connacht. A dedicated servant to the Galwegians club in Galway, he first represented his province Connacht in 1989 against Ulster. He went on to represent Connacht a record 177 times and played his last match for Connacht in April 2005. He entered the international scene in 1993 and went on to win 35 caps for Ireland scoring 296 points and he played his last test against Romania in October 1999. Tom Tuohy, a native of Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo, will be honoured in recognition of his contribution to the sport of rowing in NUI Galway over a period of more than 30 years. "Tom Tuohy has for more than 20 years been the driving force behind the story of Rowing at NUI Galway. His enormous contribution to the club has been based on a love of the sport and a deeply-felt connection to and pride in his alma mater. All of these efforts have been on an entirely voluntary basis. Tom has been and remains an unpaid coach and mentor at a time when selfless volunteerism in Irish society is a very rare thing indeed", commented fellow rowing clubman Ruadhán Cooke. Alasdar Mac Cana will be honoured for his contribution of over 20 years in the practical training of scientists in the Department of Physics and in the Education Department of NUI Galway. Originally from Armagh, his work in NUI Galway came after a lifetime of teaching in the UK, when he "retired" with his wife, Magdalen Conlon from Spiddal, to live in Connemara. Professor Tom Glynn, Department of Physics, NUI Galway, said: "we are honouring a man (now in his hundredth year) who has done truly wonderful patient work, over an extended lifetime, in educating generations of young scientists on both sides of the Irish Sea. At the same time, he has filled his life with extensive travel, experience, and adventure and left a lasting impression on all who meet him as a remarkable human being and a dedicated teacher". Tomás Ó Tuathail will be honoured for his contribution to community life and to the promotion of the Irish language in his native Tourmakeady, Co. Mayo. Professor Nollaig Mac Congáil, Scoil na Gaeilge, NUI Galway says: "Tomás Ó Tuathail, a native of Tourmakeady and one who farmed and kept a business there all his life, realised that the area was in serious decline economically and socially. He spent his life actively trying to regenerate the community in every way possible in tandem with others locally whom he inspired and energised. Societies were formed to address all aspects of sheep farming and rural development as well as social, cultural and educational matters in what once was a heartland of Irish language and heritage. Until his recent retirement Tomás was central to all these activities and, it is hoped, his leadership and example over the years will be replicated by others in the future". The annual autumn conferring ceremonies began at NUI Galway last Friday and Saturday, 19 and 20 October, when the Adult Education ceremony was held and where awards were conferred on 703 students who completed their certificate, diploma and degree courses at many locations across the country.

NUI Galway Head of the River

NUI Galway <i>Head of the River</i>-image

Monday, 22 October 2007

NUI Galway Head of the River will take place on Saturday, 27 October, the first major event of the 2007 / 2008 rowing season. While NUI Galway Boat Club expects that the season will culminate at the Beijing Olympics next August for some of its members, it will commence on home waters next weekend. The NUI Galway Head of the River course extends from Lough Corrib to just downstream of the Quincentennial Bridge, and is best viewed from the University campus, upstream and downstream of the bridge. The NUI Galway Head of the River is run on a time-trial basis, with the fastest crew over the course in each category winning the pennant, and the title "Head of the River". The main event will be the Men's Senior Eights, for the Gerry Colgan Memorial Trophy. The top category will be hotly contested, with the home club (winners in 2006) likely to be severely tested by a visiting crew from Molesey Boat Club in the UK. The Molesey crew contains two Olympic Gold Medallists (the legendary Searle brothers) as well as other Olympic and World Championship medallists from Britain, USA and Australia. This all-star line-up is by some way the most decorated crew to have ever competed in Ireland. Also visiting from the UK will be Latymer Upper School, from Hammersmith, London, who will compete in the Junior Men's categories, where they will face stiff opposition from the local junior strongholds, St Josephs and Coláiste Iognáid, as well as Tribesmen and Galway Rowing Club. In addition to the overseas entries, crews from all over Ireland will be taking part, in what should be a great day's racing, and a fantastic spectacle. This year the organisers have introduced a new format for the event, with dedicated lanes on the river for crews making their way to the Start, and for crews racing downstream. This will lead to a better spectacle for spectators, with all the different boat classes being run at 5 minute intervals over two sessions, from 10:00 to 12:00 & from 14:00 to 16:00. Live commentary will be provided, and the results of each event will be announced within minutes of the crews completing the course. Photo © Ian McDonald 2007 ENDS

Bronnfaidh OÉ Gaillimh Céimeanna Oinigh Máistreachta ar Eric Elwood, Rugbaí Chonnacht; Tom Tuohy, Club Rámhaíochta na Gaillimhe; Tomás Ó Tuathail, gníomhaí pobail agus teanga ó Thuar Mhic Éadaigh, Co. Mhaigh Eo; agus Alasdar Mac Cana, iarchomhalta foirne i Roinn na Fisice agus Roinn an Oideachais san Ollscoil. Bronnfar na céimeanna oinigh Dé Luain, an 22 Deireadh Fómhair, Dé Máirt, an 23 Deireadh Fómhair agus Déardaoin, an 25 Deireadh Fómhair, tráth a bheidh Searmanais Bhronnta an Fhómhair ar siúl. Bronnfar céimeanna ar os cionn 4,000 mac léinn ar fad. Tá clú agus cáil ar Eric Elwood as an méid oibre atá déanta aige don chluiche rugbaí i gConnachta. Tá an-luí aige le Club na nGaillimheach. D'imir sé a chéad chluiche do Chúige Chonnacht sa bhliain 1989 - cluiche i gcoinne na nUltach. Cúpla seachtain ina dhiaidh sin, nuair a bhí Eric 19 mbliana d'aois, thug sé aghaidh ar na All-Blacks. D'imir sé do Chonnachta 177 uair agus d'imir sé a chluiche deiridh do Chonnachta i mí Aibreáin 2005. Thosaigh sé ag imirt go hidirnáisiúnta sa bhliain 1993 agus d'imir sé d'Éirinn 35 uair. Scóráil sé 296 pointe agus d'imir sé a chluiche deiridh idirnáisiúnta in aghaidh na Rómáine i mí Dheireadh Fómhair 1999. Fear de bhunadh Bhaile an Róba, Co. Mhaigh Eo é Tom Tuohy. Bronnfar céim oinigh air mar aitheantas ar an méid oibre atá déanta aige ar mhaithe leis an rámhaíocht in OÉ Gaillimh le níos mó 30 bliain anuas. "Tá an-obair déanta ag Tom Tuohy chun an Rámhaíocht a chur chun cinn in OÉ Gaillimh le breis agus 20 bliain anuas. Is léir don uile dhuine go bhfuil an-suim ag Tom sa rámhaíocht agus go bhfuil luí ar leith aige lena alma mater. Rinne sé an obair seo ar fad ar bhonn deonach. Cóitseálaí agus meantóir deonach é Tom – rud atá neamhghnách go leor i sochaí an lae inniu nuair is deacair teacht ar oibrithe deonacha", a dúirt Ruadhán Cooke, comhghleacaí le Tom sa chlub rámhaíochta. Bronnfar céim oinigh ar Alasdar Mac Cana as an obair atá déanta aige le 20 bliain anuas ag cur oiliúint phraiticiúil ar eolaithe i Roinn na Fisice agus Roinn an Oideachais in OÉ Gaillimh. Rugadh Alasdar in Ard Mhacha, agus thosaigh sé ag obair in OÉ Gaillimh i ndiaidh a shaol a chaitheamh ag teasgasc sa Ríocht Aontaithe, tráth ar shocraigh sé féin agus a bhean chéile, Magdalen Conlon ón Spidéal, teacht chun cónaithe i gConamara nuair a chuaigh sé "ar scor". Seo a leanas a bhí le rá ag an Ollamh Tom Glynn, Roinn na Fisice, OÉ Gaillimh: "táimid ag tabhairt aitheantais d'fhear (atá anois 100 bliain d'aois) a rinne obair iontach agus a léirigh foighne ina chuid oibre i gcónaí, i rith a shaoil ar fad, chun eolaithe óga a oiliúint in Éirinn agus sa Ríocht Aontaithe. San am céanna, thaistil sé i mbaile is i gcéin, chonaic sé go leor agus d'éirigh leis an t-uafás a chur i gcrích, agus ba léir do gach duine ar casadh leis gur duine ar leith mar aon le múinteoir den scoth a bhí ann". Bronnfar céim ar Thomás Ó Tuathail mar aitheantas ar an méid oibre atá déanta aige ar mhaithe leis an bpobal agus cur chun cinn na Gaeilge i dTuar Mhic Éadaigh, Co. Mhaigh Eo. Seo a leanas a bhí le rá ag an Ollamh Nollaig Mac Congáil, Scoil na Gaeilge, OÉ Gaillimh: "Thuig Tomás Ó Tuathail, fear de bhunadh Thuar Mhic Éadaigh, a chaith a shaol i mbun feirme agus gnó sa cheantar, go raibh meath geilleagrach agus sóisialta i ndán don cheantar. Tá a shaol caite aige ag iarraidh an pobal a choinneáil beo le cabhair ó dhaoine áitiúla eile ar chothaigh sé spriorad pobail iontu. Bhunaigh sé coistí le déileáil le gach uile ghné den fheirmeoireacht caorach agus den fhorbairt tuaithe mar aon le ceisteanna sóisialta, cultúir agus oideachais sa cheantar seo ina raibh traidisiún láidir Gaeilge agus oidhreacht na hÉireann le brath ann tráth. Go dtí go ndeachaigh Tomás ar scor tamall ó shin, bhí ról lárnach aige sna gníomhaíochtaí seo ar fad, agus táthar ag súil go leanfaidh daoine eile an dea-shampla agus an cheannaireacht a léirigh sé i rith a shaoil". Cuireadh tús le searmanais bhronnta an fhómhair in OÉ Gaillimh Dé hAoine agus Dé Sathairn seo caite, an 19 agus an 20 Deireadh Fómhair, tráth ar reáchtáladh searmanas do Mhic Léinn Lánfhásta agus tráth ar bronnadh gradaim ar 703 mac léinn a rinne teastais, dioplómaí agus céimeanna in a lán ionad ar fud na tíre.
