I have been committed to teaching through my doctoral experience within UCL STS, where I have worked as a teaching assistant for the past four years. Here, I've had the privilege of teaching in a broad spectrum of modules, from introductory to advanced undergraduate level including some guest Master's lectures (see 'Lectures' in the previous page).
Teaching has been among the most enriching experiences of my doctoral life. I was primarily responsible for tutorials – small classes (ten to fifteen students) in which we address a weekly topic at length and, as such, demand intense engagement from the students. In tutorials, I encourage my students to value their own and their colleagues’ experiences as important resources, while engaging with theory and literature to flesh out their ideas and analytical capabilities.
Tutorials I have designed are based on a philosophy of active learning, coaxing participation from students in the guise of mock debates, risk assessment panels, or general roundtable discussions. My work as a teaching assistant has been praised by students in evaluations as "helpful", "interactive" and "engaging".
