Professor John Cowan
John’s main involvement for the Department is as a reviewer and facilitator for ENroute. His main academic concern nowadays is with the formative development of core skills, a process which he facilitates in the civil engineering course at Limerick University, which epitomises the approach outlines in his book. He is also an active reviewer for a number of educational journals. He welcomes any requests for assistance in shaping programmes to develop core abilities, and in preparing papers for publication.
