Teaching philosophy

Here you will find Christer Pursiainen’s Teaching philosophy in a nutshell. The linked document discusses the issue of how he sees the challenges of teaching and learning  in the field of societal security, in particular.

The challenges are due to the relative recent emergence of this field of research and education, which is not rooted in any traditional theoretical debates of its own making but rather combines many perspectives of a variety of disciplines. At the same time, this field has a clear normative purpose, that is, enhancing societal safety and security.

The linked document also elaborates Pursiainen’s  balancing approach between instructive teaching and more student-centered interactive learning, as well as his approach to different formative and summative assessment methods.
