Forthcoming Events for Politics Teaching and Learning

Call for Papers: the 11th Annual Political Studies Association/British International Studies Association Conference, University of Leeds, September 6-7th 2018

Focus: ‘The Student Journey’

We will explore the opportunities and challenges involved in delivering high-quality, coherent and rewarding degree programmes for students. How do we ensure that students develop an appropriate mix of skills and competences? What kinds of curriculum innovations can enhance both digital and more traditional teaching delivery methods? How can help we deal with issues such as mental health and cultural barriers which can affect the student experience? What kinds of wider opportunities should politics and international studies degrees be offering students?

Please send an abstract of no more than 200 words to Stuart McAnulla, by Friday 15th June.
