My experience as a teaching assistant includes lecturing, leading discussion sections, and meeting frequently with students in one-on-one settings. I strive to incorporate elements from each approach into my teaching to accommodate various learning styles.
I intend to structure my courses in a way that not only introduces students to the concepts and theories in international relations, but also familiarizes them with the history of the subject matter. Students are then presented with the task, through classroom discussion and writing assignments, to applying the conceptual tools learned in historical cases to contemporary international issues. In addition to social scientific work, I also assign humanistic narratives that convey the basic facts of important cases. Here is a broader statement on my teaching philosophy.
Examples of undergraduate courses that I have designed so far are presented below:
