About this book

This edited volume is a collection of twenty-three autobiographical narratives by successful teachers of global politics and international relations. The diverse contributors (from a variety of institutional contexts, sub-disciplines, and countries) describe their development as teachers, articulate mission statements for their teaching, and link both to pedagogical practices that exemplify their teaching philosophies. Rather than provide specific recipes for authoritative techniques, the essays empower readers as creative developers of their own approaches to teaching global politics. They demonstrate the multiple ways that instructors have grounded deliberate pedagogical designs in a variety of deeper philosophical commitments, and resources are provided to facilitate discussion and collaborative deliberation between groups of readers.

Reviews

“The place and space of teaching in higher education and international relations, particularly, needs to be given more focus and attention. This book offers an accessible way to encourage early career and established scholars to reflect on their practice. It is rich, funny, reflective, and engaging.” (David J Hornsby, Associate Vice-President, Teaching and Learning, Carleton University, Canada)

“Pedagogical Journeys through World Politics presents a wide range of voices in an engaging collection of essays. It is a well curated collection that makes a valuable, contemporary contribution to the resources available on teaching with purpose in international studies. It should serve as a foundation for critical dialogues on teaching that will inspire current and future members of the academy.” (Jeffrey S. Lantis, Professor of Political Science, The College of Wooster, USA)

“Few, if any faculty, receive formal pedagogical training when they enter the Academy, and are all-too-frequently left to their own devices when teaching for the first time. Some falter, and get stuck; others use each classroom teaching experience—both positive and negative—to reflect on their practice, and to adapt it as needed. In doing so, they become more effective teachers. This book is a wonderful resource for all International Relations and Global Politics faculty whose aim it is to be such effective teachers. It showcases strategies for modifying practices, while recognizing that there is no 'one-size-fits-all' solution when classes do not go according to plan. I highly recommend it.” (Jenny Hadingham, Assistant Director & Lecturer, Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning, University of Rochester, USA)
