Film as Critical Pedagogy
Dr Darragh McGee (Lecturer, Department of Health, University of Bath)
Module: Advanced Issues in Sport and International Development
Darragh talks about his experiences of engaging his students with International Development Expert Megan Shutzer through the use of ethnographic, documentary film (New Generation Queens), Skype, and Twitter.
