The teaching and learning specialist group of the PSAI (Political Studies Association of Ireland) brings together scholars (from post-graduates to established academics) to explore innovations in teaching, learning, assessment and curriculum development, and examine different pedagogical approaches within the discipline. It acts as a forum for networking, debate, publication and grant application and as a locus of communication between scholars of teaching and learning in politics in Ireland and similar groupings in this field internationally.
It aims to provide a network for colleagues who are interested in exploring pedagogic developments within the discipline to share cutting edge approaches and effective techniques in teaching and learning.
Some of its activities include convening a panel on teaching and learning at the annual PSAI conference and organising seminars and other events to encourage scholarship and collaboration in this ever-developing field.
