The teaching at the chair is offered through lectures, seminars and workshops. Basic aims consist of developing an understanding of the different approaches in International Relations (IR) and current debates in the discipline. Further, we seek to engage in critical reflection about existing paradigms and enable students to develop their own research. Hence, we focus not only theoretical debates, but also on a broad variety of empirical cases concerning global politics. In this context, we utilize different and interactive formats of teaching, in order to develop research questions and programmes together with students.
The seminars at the chair are based on the method of Problem-Based Learning (PBL). Information on the PBL-method can be found in this paradigmatic article by Terry Barret as well as this handout by Prof. Antje Wiener and Prof. Ursula Schröder.
