I was asked to run a course in professional development for the Politics students at the College of Europe in Bruges in the academic year 2015-16, entitled Online Communication in EU Policymaking. The course ran again in 2016-17, and will run once more in 2017-18. The course aims to equip students with the online communications skills necessary to work in public affairs jobs in EU affairs after graduation.

I also now have a formal role running a second course together wtih Costanza Hermanin and Pierpaolo Settembri – the College of Europe’s famous simulation game. Here I am responsible for the communications technology that makes the game work – the twitcol and WP platforms that give players in the game communication power. How that technology works is explained in more depth on my blog here.

Teaching at the College of Europe gives me the rather excessive title of “Visiting Professor” – it’s more like Visiting Lecturer! But it’s a privilege to work at the College and contribute as a teacher at the place I myself previously studied.
