Course Overview

Click here for English version

Déanfar staidéar ar an dá chineál ateangaireachta: ateangaireacht leantach agus ateangaireacht chomhuaineach. Bainfear úsáid as cleachtaí éagsúla chun oiliúint sna scileanna seo a chur ar mhic léinn: cleachtaí cuimhne; ateangaireacht gan nótaí; ateangaireacht le hamharc; teicnící um breacadh nótaí agus an taisclann institiúide. Is iad an Ghaeilge, an Béarla, an Fhraincis, an Spáinnis, an Iodáilis agus an Ghearmáinis atá á dtairiscint mar theangacha an chúrsa seo. Déanfar staidéar ar theoiric agus cleachtas na hateangaireachta, áit a ndíreofar ar scileanna cumarsáide, e.g., glóroiliúint. Scrúdófar an eitic phroifisiúnta a bhaineann leis an gceird seo freisin, mar aon le nósanna imeachta comhdhála, cleachtais oibre agus dálaí oibre.

Course Outline

Tá an clár seo bunaithe ar an gCéim Mháistreachta Eorpach in Ateangaireacht Chomhdhála, clár a forbraíodh i gcomhar le hinstitiúidí an Aontais Eorpaigh. Is gá go mbeadh iarchéim san ateangaireacht ag duine le tabhairt faoi na scrúduithe ateangaireachta idirnáisiúnta agus is é seo an t-aon chlár dá leithéid in Éirinn.

Required AT130: Modheolaíochtaí Taighde / Research Methodology


Semester 1 | Credits: 5

To provide a theoretical underpinning for the research process; to encourage a systematic approach to research; and to develop practical research skills. It aims to provide insight into the range of qualitative methodologies (ethnographical and case study research) available to the researcher and to develop participants’ practical research skills in the design, conduct and analysis of qualitative research. It also aims to provide an insight into quantitative methodologies, particularly in experimental and survey research. It explores the issues of research design, sampling, data collection and analysis involved in quantitative methodologies. It highlights important data validity and reliability issues, as well as several ethical issues that can arise. Buntaca teoiriciúil a sholáthar don phróiseas taighde; cur chuige córasach i leith taighde a spreagadh; agus scileanna taighde praiticiúla a fhorbairt. Tá sé mar aidhm aige léargas a thabhairt ar an raon modheolaíochtaí cáilíochtúla (taighde eitneagrafaíochta agus cás-staidéir) atá ar fáil don taighdeoir agus scileanna taighde praiticiúla na rannpháirtithe a fhorbairt maidir le taighde cáilíochtúil a dhearadh, a stiúradh agus a anailísiú. Tá sé mar aidhm aige freisin léargas a thabhairt ar mhodheolaíochtaí cainníochtúla, go háirithe i dtaighde turgnamhach agus suirbhé. Scrúdaíonn sé na saincheisteanna a bhaineann le dearadh taighde, sampláil, bailiú sonraí agus anailís a bhaineann le modheolaíochtaí cainníochtúla. Leagann sé béim ar shaincheisteanna bailíochta agus iontaofachta sonraí, chomh maith le roinnt saincheisteanna eiticiúla a d'fhéadfadh teacht chun cinn.

Breda Ní Mhaoláin |   Dioplóma Iarchéime Ateangaireacht Chomhdhála

Is gairm bheatha uathúil í an Ateangaireacht Chomhdhála mar tá an deis agamsa anois a bheith ag plé leis an dá rud is mó a thaitníonn liom: teangacha agus cumarsáid! Bhain mé an-taitneamh as an Dioplóma Iarchéime san Ateangaireacht Chomhdhála mar go raibh sé praiticiúil agus gur fhoghlaim mé na scileanna cuí atá ábhartha d’obair an ateangaire comhdhála. Anuas ar an oiliúint ateangaireachta, dhírigh muid ar chúrsaí reatha agus nithe eile is gá a thuiscint más rud é gur mian leat bheith i d’ateangaire rathúil, ag an leibhéal is airde, sna hinstitiúidí idirnáisiúnta. Ar chríochnú an chúrsa dom, ní hé an saol céanna atá agam ar chor ar bith! Ní hamháin gur Ateangaire Comhdhála creidiúnaithe mé ag ateangaireacht ag an leibhéal is airde, in institiúidí an A.E., ach anois is Aistritheoir/Ateangaire Comhdhála mé ag obair san institiúid is tábhachtaí in Éirinn, an pharlaimint náisiúnta, ag ateangaireacht gach lá i nDáil Éireann agus Seanad Éireann.
