Teaching My main teaching responsibilities at present are: International Relations Theory (POL251), our second year core- course for IR BA students and Politics of Southeast Asia (POL381), a research-led, third-year undergraduate module. I am also supervising BA, MA and PhD dissertations. Details of these courses can be found on the School of Politics and International Relations webpage. In the past I also taught courses at Oxford on Post-Cold War International Relations, IR in the Cold War, IR in the Era of Two World Wars, and the IR of Southeast Asia, among others. While at Oxford I was heavily involved in developing better support for graduate student teachers and produced a webpage of resources for their benefit, which is archived here. The links include guidance on course design, my old reading lists, cover sheets and feedback forms, and other items of potential interest. Following the completion of my teaching portfolio - ‘Mind the Gap: Using Formative Assessment to Narrow Perception Gaps in Tutorial Teaching’ - I was made a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2008.
