Teaching & mentoring

Dr. Beth Dawson is widely regarded by both her peers and students as an inspirational teacher and mentor. Since completing her PhD, she has been engaged in teaching at universities and higher education institutions in France and Belgium for over 15 years. In 2016, she introduced two courses to the Sorbonne University, Paris: “An Introduction to Journalism in English” and “Non-verbal Communication,” both of which have been running successfully for the past seven years.

Her students frequently highlight her passion and knowledge for her subjects and her good-humoured nature. One student from the Sorbonne said, “Beth has been one of the most inspiring and attentive teachers during my time here. Her teaching methods and wonderful personality are what I remember most about her. Thank you, Beth, for sharing your passion for journalism with me!” – Victoria Veronese, 2019.

Beth continues to be actively involved in teaching, and her recent course on non-verbal communication received praise as “exceptional” and “unique” in terms of content and delivery.
