Melinda Negrón-Gonzales is Associate Professor of political science and Program Coordinator of the Politics and Society Program in Manchester. She has taught at UNH since fall 2008 and teaches courses on international relations and comparative politics. Negrón-Gonzales's research interests span the following areas: international affairs, Turkish Studies, humanitarian intervention/responsibility to protect, social movements and democratization. She is currently working on research concerning counter-terrorism policy and democratization in Turkey. ​She has not yet experimented with Open Pedagogy/Open Education Practices, though her courses always include peer learning, collaborative projects and information literacy activities. Hence, Open Pedagogy seems like the logical next step to incorporate more active learning activities and more knowledge sharing. ​
