Isabel is a Teaching Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL) with specialisation in interdisciplinary pedagogy. She is a passionate and creative educator dedicated to developing knowledge for the next generation of professionals. Her teaching practices advocate an inclusive and ‘brave’ classroom whereby students feel comfortable to present their ideas, have an appreciation for different arguments and allows them to develop curiosity for different points of view from their peers and learn from each other.
Isabel has a disciplinary background in history and gender studies and completed her PhD in sociology at University of Warwick. She joined IATL in September 2021, using her teaching to make connections between different disciplines and practices in humanities and social science. She convenes the modules ‘Forms of Identity and Global Connections’ and co-convenes the module ‘Thinking Water’. Previous to this appointment, Isabel taught across three different departments at Warwick: the Academic Development Centre, the Sociology and the Applied Linguistic Department. Furthermore, she has extensive experience teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate level students from both humanities and education based backgrounds at several prestigious higher education institutions in Chile.
