Using the OxHRH Blog as Teaching Resource

by | Aug 13, 2015

Former Editor of the OxHRH Blog, Rachel Wechsler understands the potential value of the Blog as a teaching tool and has integrated it into the curriculum for the International Human Rights Law course she teaches at the West Virginia University College of Law.  While much of a foundational course in International Human Rights Law generally focuses on historical developments, she also wish to engage her students in discussion about events and issues that are impacting human rights around the world today.  By including relevant Blog posts as part of the core reading assignments and having students write a post for potential publication on the Blog, she can ensure that her students will not merely be passive observers, but rather active participants, in the global conversation about contemporary issues affecting human rights law.
