I have widespread teaching experience, lecturing and conducting seminars for undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses to full- and part-time students from a diversity of backgrounds. I have written and delivered my own research-led units on gender and politics, national politics and comparative politics. I am dedicated to ensuring that my students are interested in, and aware of, the latest debates in contemporary politics and I adopt a range of teaching methods to ensure that lectures and seminars are intellectually rigorous as well as lively and engaging. I combine traditional with non-traditional teaching methods in order to ensure a high quality and engaging learning environment, I have for instance used e-voting technology during my lectures. In addition to using research-led teaching techniques I also draw upon my contacts with ‘real world’ politics to provide additional guest lectures from activists and political campaigners. I have completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (2011) and the feedback that I have received from students on my teaching and my units has always been excellent.
