This panel considers three papers that relate to issues in the teaching of politics and international relations. While the subjects look diverse at first glance (covering research ethics, information literacy, and implications of A Level reform), the common theme is the desire to improve the teaching and learning of politics and IR, the centrality of the student experience, and the importance of scholarship-based practice.
