This Special Issue provides an opportunity to showcase research in Political Science education from a broad range of perspectives and multi-disciplinary lenses. We invite contributions that present new insights into teaching and learning in Political Science at a variety of higher education institutions, and in different countries. We also invite contributions regarding different research approaches and multi-disciplinary methodologies. By embracing a broad and eclectic approach to teaching and learning in Political Science, we aim to address the diversity of learning experiences in the field, which are provided by the various contexts in which students study Political Science. Our ultimate goal is to facilitate information sharing of practices across contexts and disciplines to enhance learning and teaching. Thus, we encourage the examination of a variety of research approaches to illustrate the assortment of tools available to educational researchers whose work focuses on understanding different aspects of the instruction and curriculum of Political Science. Practical applications demonstrating strategies of assessment of the effectiveness of developed applications are welcome. Critical analyses of existing applications underlying their strengths and weaknesses are also welcome. This broad approach sets this Special Issue apart from other, more focused, Special Issues by allowing broader comparisons across disciplines and methodologies while linking to existing literature on Political Science education.
