|Title||Engaging students to engage|
This short essay will present some reflections about my experience as instructor of the module “Contemporary City” during my stay as visiting professor at Politecnico di Milano’s Dipartimento Architettura e Studi Urbani (DAStU) in Spring 2013. Rather than spoonfeeding students with content knowledge, “Contemporary City” under my instruction was characterized by a strong emphasis on active-learning pedagogies as well as the development of students' critical thinking abilities while also stressing the importance to attend to, and engage with, the multiplicity of urban contexts and experiences in today’s globalised – or at least increasingly globalising – world.
