The 1st European Conference on Teaching and Learning Politics, International Relations and European Studies
Maastricht, 26-27 June 2014
Teaching Politics and International Relations to the next generation of students
What does it mean to teach Politics, International Relations (IR), or European Studies (ES) to the next generation of students, what should it mean for future students to learn Politics, International Relations, or European Studies? What are the opportunities of educating the next generation of a knowledge society? But also what challenges will Politics, IR and ES instructors encounter, considering the overburdening availability of (electronic) information and the growing demand for skills-based education? Next to those global trends in higher education, there are also specific features of European Higher Education that need careful consideration: the Bologna process, the employability discourse, or the raising concern with fees to mention just a few.
