Teaching


My teaching is deeply embedded in my interdisciplinary approach. Also, I am convinced that only participatory and interactive approaches can contribute to sustainable knowledge construction. My main objective in my teaching is to accompany students to develop a critical and reflexive stance towards social science theories and concepts while enabling them simultaneously to conduct methodologically and ethically sound research.
I am mainly teaching in our interdisciplinary Master of Social Science while also teaching some courses on BA-level. Those are open to students coming from all social science disciplines. Most of my teaching is in French, some seminaries are also in English.
