Teaching experience

I have accumulated extensive teaching experience lecturing and tutoring for undergraduate level modules on International Relations and Comparative Politics at the School of Politics and International Relations (UCD). As tutor, I prepare and hold 50-minute long tutorial sessions for groups of 15-20 students (including the preparation of teaching material and design of group exercises), I grade midterm essays and final exams and hold regular office hours.

As of this year, I will be teaching my own module on EU Foreign Policy.

Lecturing

EU Foreign Policy: understanding how the European Union and its member states engage with the world (Fall 2022). This is a third undergraduate course (40 students), for which I autonomously prepared the syllabus, designed and grade the assessments as well as lecture/seminar activities.

Other teaching experience

In May 2019, I participated in a NORTIA masterclass on data gathering and elite interviews, held at the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford. The event was attended by graduate students from Oxford and other UK universities

I was also invited to hold a lecture on European Strategic Autonomy at the Online Spring School organised by the Faculty of Social Sciences of Charles University in April 2021.

Most recently, I was invited to participate in a panel debate on EU external relations, as part of the course ‘Cultures of Governance’ for the MA programme in European Policy at the Faculty of Humanities (University of Amsterdam).
