Teaching

I have given a fair amount of lectures, seminars, supervisions, and high school lessons over the last years, some about the history & philosophy of science and others about adjacent or much more general issues. Please do not hesitate to contact me regarding specific syllabuses or teaching methods. In general, I conceive of teaching as a participatory and liberatory activity, aiming to improve students' understanding of the objective world based on their unique perspectives on it. Hence, I am convinced that teaching requires teachers to commit to a serious amount of learning themselves, both about their students and their subject as viewed from the perspective of their students. My views on education are inspired by long discussions with my partner Maria, who teaches in secondary schools in East London and is a never-ending source of pedagogical inspiration.
