Abstract

The purpose of this panel is to discuss examples of innovative approaches to teaching and learning in various Political Science courses. We particularly welcome papers that discuss experience with novel pedagogic methods and ways of learning and are provided with evidence in the context of existing literature on teaching and learning in higher education. The contributors can discuss issues such as the ways of overcoming existing barriers, disciplinary and inter-disciplinary perspectives and practices, use of new technology, employment of non-traditional assessment methods, examples of problem based-learning, among others. We expect the contributors to showcase examples of good practice with the benefit of providing inspiration and encouragement for improving existing ways of teaching and learning.
