Although generally considered beneficial, little is known about how videoconferencing can enhance the quality of Politics and International Relations teaching in traditional classrooms. Studying the author’s own practice, this article examines data gathered from a variety of sources including survey questionnaires, Twitter feeds, and online course evaluations to highlight the usefulness of this technology for higher order learning. By integrating videoconferencing technologies into learning designs, lecturers can utilise them to assist students with formulating questions geared towards higher order learning, provide varied learning opportunities to fit their students’ disparate needs, enhance class interactivity, and increase students’ intercultural learning by exposing them to non-Western viewpoints.
