Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The International Politics and Innovative Learning (IPIL) network was established as a platform for exchange of ideas, experiences, and resources on suiting teaching methods in a technologically enhanced academic environment. The IPIL held its first working group in 2018 at the ISA annual convention, outlined the network's agenda and reviewed some core procedures like the use of simulations, movies and computer-games, bringing together students from across the globe and improving their understanding of world politics. However, the IPIL network still needs to move on, from budding creative ideas to become a mainstream university reality. To advance from initial process to tangible progress, the proposed roundtable will focus on practical ways to make this shift happen. It will especially seek to strengthen inter-university and cross-national collaborations for teaching and research. To enhance the IPIL network and generate rewarding products, participants will consider infrastructure and administration options, develop joint research questions, guidelines and manuals, decide on lead projects, discuss the ethical implications of using experimental methods, and review measures to facilitate collaboration among members. The roundtable is also designed to set the stage for joint IPIL publications and an ISA sponsored workshop in the near future.
