14 Faculty of Film, Art + Creative Technologies Staff Success Dr Olivia Hurley I am a Lecturer On the Special Purpose Award Certificate in Sport Psychology The research skills students develop enable them to design their own ethical research studies, collect relevant data and analyse it using many different methodological and statistical techniques. S t a ff + Graduate Success These skills are valuable, as they are transferable to many other areas of life. Having come from a strong sporting background myself I competed for Ireland as a sprinter in my sport of Track and Field I always knew I wanted to be an academic and lecture in my area of passion: sport psychology. I completed my BSc (Hons), MSc (Research) and PhD in UCD, under the supervision of top sport psychologist, Professor Aidan Moran. At IADT, I have found a home for my passions of lecturing, researching and applying psychological principles. I teach on and helped to develop the Certificate in Sport Psychology (Level 8). It is one of our most popular Special Purpose Award courses, and many high profile coaches and athletes study with us. I am a registered psychologist with the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI), as well as a consultant sport psychologist with the Irish Institute of Sport. It is important to be a member of such organisations, so students are secure in the knowledge that they are learning from individuals who are highly qualified in their fields of expertise. Students and staff flourish in IADT s unique environment of creativity, innovation and collaboration.

15 Graduate Success Nicola Fortune Caroline Lang I studied MSc Cyberpsychology Now I am Freshman Programme Manager for UCD The experience of doing a Masters was incredibly valuable and I now feel much more confident in my research skills. In 2012, I decided to return to college part time and pursue a Master s Degree related to my primary degree in Psychology. Cyberpsychology was an obvious choice as it is such a new area, with so much left to be explored. As I was working full time, I was initially worried about whether I would be able to devote enough time to the course to do it justice. My classmates all faced similar challenges and were all very helpful to each other. We also provided each other with totally different perspectives on the topics we studied, as we all had such different educational and working backgrounds. The course itself was well laid out and perfectly pitched for an adult learner to retain the freedom to interpret assignments based on their own particular areas of interest. The experience of doing my Master s thesis was incredibly valuable and I now feel much more confident in my research skills in large part due to the excellent academic supervision I received. My classmates were interesting people who I enjoyed getting to know, my lecturers offered new insights on Cyberpsychology and I also had the opportunity to develop both professionally and personally as part of the course. In 2014, I graduated as student of the year, with an MSc in Cyberpsychology, having also gained the experience of presenting my research at conferences aimed at both academia and industry. I studied MSc Cyberpsychology Now I am Digital Marketing Manager for LearnUpon Overall my two years at IADT were very fulfilling and an experience that will stand to me in the years to come. While on maternity leave in 2012 I decided that I wanted a new challenge, both academically and professionally, with the hope of securing a new job. With no previous experience of studying psychology I started the MSc in Cyberpsychology in September The lectures and assignments were daunting at first as there was a lot to learn but the workload was achievable. Each module offers a solid understanding of the topic being covered, with the opportunity to use assignments to focus on specific areas that personally interest you. The lecturers and staff at IADT are very welcoming and always happy to help. The class sizes are small and interaction is encouraged both inside and outside of class time leading to some very interesting discussions that greatly enhanced my learning experience. The facilities are great, particularly the library where I spent many Saturday afternoons researching and working on assignments. Thanks to completing the MSc in Cyberpsychology I m now working as a Digital Marketing Manager for LearnUpon, a successful online learning company, and I ve also become a published researcher. My journal article which I completed as part of the research module, Just untag it: Exploring the management of undesirable Facebook photos, was published in the February 2015 edition of Computers in Human Behavior. This great personal achievement would not have been possible if I hadn t signed up to the MSc. IADT Postgraduate + Professional Development Prospectus

User Experience (UX) Design is a process of designing digital products that focuses on maximising user satisfaction through user research, usability testing and iterative design. User satisfaction with a product primarily, but not exclusively, depends on their interaction with that product. Therefore, interaction design is an important aspect of UX design. However, UX design considers other aspects of a user s experience, such as factors that influence whether or not to use the product in the first instance, or the kind of external product support provided. What will I be doing? This MSc explores the theory and practice of user experience design through a series of lectures, seminars, practical exercises and real-world projects. The lectures and seminars will present the underlying principles of qualitative and quantitative research methods, human-computer interaction and interaction design, usability testing, critical thinking, problem solving, and design thinking. The exercises and projects will provide students with an opportunity to develop their skills and competencies in relation to these topics. During the first year of the course, students will complete three projects, each of increasing complexity and difficulty. These projects will examine such themes as universal design, responsive and adaptive design, designing for the Internet of Things. In addition, students will complete a number of written assignments to broaden and deepen their knowledge, and develop their critical thinking and academic writing skills. During the second year of the course, students will explore a range of emerging topics, for example, the integration of UX design processes into current software engineering processes. In addition, students will complete a research project on an appropriate topic of their own choice. Students will be working in multi-disciplinary teams, assuming leadership roles as required. They will also present and defend the results of their work, and critique the work of others. What will I be able to do when I graduate? Graduates of the course will be able to work in senior roles in the field of UX Design. These roles will cover a wide range of areas from user researchers, through interaction and/or user experience designers, to usability testing experts.
