TEACHING

 

 

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 an assistant lecturer in history of science (Universitat de València, Spain), and a tutor in history and philosophy of science (University of Oxford, University of Leeds), and as an invited lecturer in postgraduate history of science and science education programs in Spain, France, Colombia and Mexico.

 

 

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.

 

 

 

Since I joined the Universidad del Rosario in the Fall of 2013, I have been offering annually an Introduction to the History and Sociology of Science and Technology, an Introduction to the History of Medicine, a Medical Humanities course, and more specialized courses such as Places: Debating the Geopolitics and Methodology of Scales in the Social Sciences and Science x Education x Technology (the syllabi for some of these courses can be found at http://www.gesctp.com)

 

 

I have organized two major educational schemes which developed innovative ways of training history of science 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 students in all its phases, 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.
