Siobhan O'Connor joined the Department of Childhood Studies at CCCU in October 2008. As a Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood Studies, she is responsible for teaching year one undergraduate students and supporting their transition to Higher Education. She has designed a number of modules including 'being, belonging and becoming' which not only supports students in their transition, but also supports students to engage in a particular philosophy towards children and their childhoods. In addition, Siobhan teaches on both year two and three of the ECS degree programme and supervises undergraduate and postgraduate research dissertations. Her academic interests are primarily associated with inclusion and diversity and a values-based approach to the issue of quality in early childhood care and education. She is currently completing her PhD which explores the issue of quality early childhood care and education from the perspectives of parents, practitioners and young children, drawing in particular on ethnographic research methodologies that support the participation of young children in research. Her most recent work explores peer-to-peer learning at undergraduate level, a values-based approach to professionalism and professional identity within the early years, and the review of the 'Index of Inclusion: Developing play, learning and participation' (Booth, Ainscow and Kingston, 2006). Siobhan is also studying towards the PGCLTHE.
