Dr. John Kubiak

Teaching & Learning Officer(Curriculum) (Education)
1 COLLEGE GREEN


Dr John Kubiak lectures at the School of Education, TCD and is based in the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities. He was programme coordinator of the Certificate in Contemporary Living and the certificate in Arts, Science and Inclusive Applied Practice (ASIAP), an inclusive tertiary education programme for people with intellectual disabilities. John's doctoral research - which was conducted with the input of co-researchers with intellectual disabilities - has led to the development of a model of how people with intellectual disabilities experience learning while in tertiary education. John teaches on a variety of courses for the ASIAP and his efforts to raise awareness on equality issues and promote diversity in Trinity resulted in being a recipient of the Equality Fund Project on two occasions (2013-14 and 2015-16) in collaboration with the Trinity Sports Centre. John supervises at post-graduate level on the School's M.Ed. and PME programmes. In 2012 John was a recipient of the prestigious Provost Teaching Award. In 2013, he was awarded a Post-doctorate research position and bursary with TCD's School of Education and is a member of the research group Inclusion in Education and Society.
