On June 13-15, 12 graduate students and faculty members visited APSA headquarters in Washington, DC for the Centennial Center Teaching & Learning Symposium focused on teaching comparative politics. During the three-day event, participants conducted presentations on a range of substantive topics and pedagogical practices related to comparative politics. They also worked in teams to create new teaching resources, including an exciting start-up kit for introductory CP courses, as well as an annotated guide to country databases that instructors can use in the classroom. These resources, as well as the resources created by participants in past teaching symposia, will be made available to the broader community of political science educators through APSA.
