Valeria reflects on her own transition from researcher to teacher of Politics. She has embedded the pedagogic method of Inquiry Based Learning into her teaching. This enables her to develop a research informed approach to an academic subject, allowing the students be challenged by different concepts and theoretical positions. She uses these varying conceptualisations of reality in applied scenarios like role plays with the students. This allows them to gain a deeper understanding of alternatives positions and challenges their learning further.
