Sarah Fisher, PhD, has been the instructor of record for more than 10 courses at Emory & Henry College and the University of Georgia, ranging from Comparative Politics of Asia to upper division courses on gender and international conflict. Her training and experience as an instructor goes beyond standard college teaching. She has taught gifted middle and high school students in the US, China, and India. These diverse teaching experiences have honed her skills leading classroom discussion and fueled her desire to work closely with students both in and out of the classroom.
Dr. Fisher has published peer-reviewed articles on active learning pedagogy (including work on a constitutional convention simulation done in India) as well as research articles related to international conflict. In guiding students through traditional debates and research methods in political science, she encourages them to push creative and disciplinary boundaries.
Sarah facilitated the course "Leadership & Diplomacy: Problem-Solving in International Politics" at GSS2018.
