Politics in Europe: POL1020

In this course, I taught on the subject of Politics in Europe for Dr Florian Stoeckel. I taught five classes a week, introducing students to European Politics and how to interpret different European rules, institutions and ideas. With the current focus of European politics in the current political climate, this is a very current module to teach, and the students were engaged with the material and active in the seminars.

State and Society

I taught five seminars a week on this module convened by Dr Nils Christian-Bormann, which was concerned with studying how the state and society interacted and how they both governed and influenced each other. It focused also on the study of comparative politics, and how to actually understand political science as a subject. It was enjoyable to teach, and set up the students well for successive years in studying politics.

Graduate Essay Writing Skills Coach, Department of Politics

I was requested by the Department as an acknowledgement of my skills to assist undergraduates in essay writing methods. Students made an appointment with me, and I informed them of how they can improve their essay writing technique and how to get higher marks.

1-1 Essay Writing Skills Sessions

The 1-1 Essay Writing Skills Sessions program offers students the opportunity to meet with a Postgraduate Teaching Assistant (PTA) for a 30 minute session to help interpret and and take on board the feedback received on coursework for Politics modules in the Autumn. Students bring copies of first term essays to the appointment, together with the mark and feedback received on them. In the session tutors read the feedback on all essays, help interpret the feedback, identify particular issues and strategies for improvement and answer any questions students have about writing politics essays. For this, I was nominated for the Exeter University Guild Teaching Awards for providing best feedback, and I won in both Politics and SSIS.
