Professor Geo Quinot (Faculty of Law) presented A Love triangle: Changes in our knowledge world, pedagogy and subject discipline at the first SU Teaching and Learning Seminar in April 2012.

 In this presentation Prof Quinot investigated how three dimensions of teaching can be connected in order to bring about a coherent theoretical underpinning for teaching in a specific subject discipline.
