Name: Rosario Hernández School: Languages, Cultures and Linguistics (Spanish and Portuguese Section)Current Position: Associate Professor, School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics, University College Dublin BiographyI am Associate Professor in the School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics. My primary degree was in Education and I also hold a B.A. and M.A. in Hispanic Studies. I completed a PhD in Education focusing on an analysis of the practices adopted in undergraduate Hispanic Studies programmes to assess students' learning. I have presented my work at international conferences, and published several articles on the impact that alternative assessment practices have on students' learning. My research interests include second language teaching and learning, assessment of student learning, teaching methodologies, the professional development of teachers and ICT in teaching. In 2007 I was awarded a Fellowship in Teaching and Academic Development as part of a new initiative at University College Dublin to develop more innovative teaching and learning practices and to enhance student learning. I have been Vice-Principal for Teaching and Learning in the College of Arts and Humanities (2014-17) working on a number of initiatives to enhance the educational experience of students at UCD and to facilitate activities for staff development in teaching, learning and assessment.
