To mark the launch of the new Learning Enhancement and Development Educational Research (LEaDER) Centre, LEaD wanted to celebrate examples of best practice in relation to teaching and learning at City, University of London. As part of this, we have conducted a series of interviews with staff whose teaching is informed by their research and/or practice in unique and productive ways. From these interviews we’ve developed a series of video case studies, which showcase innovative, relevant, and engaging content and teaching. Over the coming weeks we will be sharing these case studies as part of LEaD’s commitment to recognising and sharing good practice in education across the institution.
In the first of these case studies we hear from Dr Luke McDonagh, a Senior Lecturer from The City Law School. Luke’s research explores intellectual property law and his teaching encourages students to recognise the impact that intellectual property law has on their day-to-day experiences. He illustrates his teaching with high-profile cases from the news and highlights relevant content via social media. To find out more watch the video above or read the accompanying transcript and information sheet (Luke McDonagh Info Sheet).
Next up we will be hearing from Professor Scott Moeller from Cass Business School and how twenty-four years of industry experience informs his teaching practice.
