My teaching skills are built upon my academic training in science education research, my international expertise in the teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate history of science courses, and my broad experience as a communicator in different formats (museum, academia, popularization).
I have developed my teaching experience as a lecturer in history of science, technology and medicina at the Universitat de València (Spain) and the Universidad del Rosario (Colombia), a tutor in history and philosophy of science (University of Oxford, University of Leeds), and an invited lecturer in postgraduate history of science and science education programs in Spain, France, Mexico, Colombia and Brazil.
I have teaching experience both in introductory courses in history and philosophy of science, and specialized courses on topics such as science pedagogy, material culture of science, comparative and transnational history, science museums, the physical sciences, visual cultures of science, and the historiography of science, technology and medicine.
I have organized three major educational schemes which developed innovative ways of training history of science, technology and medicine students by placing them face to face with real professional challenges and offering them the experience of direct participation in the development of the history of science agenda in international perspective:
* Communicating Science: Pleasures and Pitfalls of Historical Narrative, a seminar series which
constituted the 2010-2011 annual seminar program of the Catalan Society for the History of Science and Technology, and which engaged MA and PhD students, from design to production and
development. For the products of this series see here.
* 6th European Spring School of History of Science and Popularization, a research school which involved a good number of European, American and Latin American postgraduate students and has produced a large number of educational and scholarly products for the study of visual representations in science.
* A project of pedagogical innovation leading to a full renovation of two standard courses in the history of medicine (for 1st semester and 4th semester medical students) through a combination of medical humanities, digital humanities (IRRHACTM), material culture, museum education and historical and pedagogical research. A brief description (in Spanish) of the project and the course syllabi is available here.
