During my career I have developed my teaching and training skills whenever possible and I am excited by the possibility of consolidating these skills in the future. To date I have taught at undergraduate and postgraduate level in the UK, Germany and Sweden. In my lectures, seminars and tutorials I use a combination of traditional and more innovative teaching techniques and I pride myself on being responsive to the needs of heterogeneous student bodies. Often my students have differing academic backgrounds and abilities and thus I aim to inclusively cater for differing student needs and to define appropriate learning objectives. In general, I foster a teaching philosophy founded on collaborative learning, dialogue and student participation. I have experience of designing new course modules, single lectures and seminars, as well as adapting existing teaching material so that its communication benefits from my own research findings, methods and expertise. In my teaching capacity I have used a range of pedagogical tools including breakout discussion sessions, group readings, field trips, film viewings and traditional style lectures. My experience as an undergraduate tutor has additionally provided me with the skills needed to attend to the pastoral care and welfare of my students.
I am currently coordinating a post-graduate Qualitative Research Methods course for Umeå University’s Sociology Department.
I also annually provide post-graduate research training in Memory Methods for the University of London’s Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory.
