Understanding Politics: Ideas and institutions in the modern world
In this session, module chair Richard Heffernan introduces the new core politics module in the Politics, Philosophy and Economics qualification, presented for the first time this October, and explains how it was produced. The module, DD211, explores “what is politics?” and “who does politics?", "where"? and "how"? It also condors how we study politics, whether we are looking at concepts, ideologies, institutions and the interrelationship of the local and the global. This session will give you an insight into some of the ways politics impacts on institutions and processes in our everyday lives, as well as illustrating the ways In which the Faculty of Social Sciences develop teaching materials that enhance the distance learning experience.
