Unless my class has provoked a crisis of thought among my students, forced them to consider things differently, opened their eyes to something new and unexpected, I haven’t done my job right.
It is student satisfaction and actual learning that makes this part of my job meaningful and rewarding. My approach focuses on blending state-of-the-art theory from research with practice-based case material. My past track record (evaluations and teaching awards) testify to my commitment to high quality and engaged teaching. I am a passionate educator who is building on a problem-based, cross-disciplinary teaching style, creating innovative and engaging learning experiences.
I particularly enjoy taking students by surprise with unusual methods. Inspired by Deleuze’s idea of “shock-to-thought” (how experience and confrontation to unusual situations triggers the thinking process in a unique and creative way), I like confronting mainstream theories to alternative theories based on an experiential learning pedagogy making full use of in-class experiences and encouraging student engagement and critical reflexivity.
Such experimentations earned me the Impact and Innovation Pedagogy and Teaching Award at Emlyon in 2017, and I regularly receive very positive student evaluations such as seen below:
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
« Unique and masterful course, THANK YOU ! the best course I’ve had at emlyon »
« Madame Pérezts is the professor who has made the most impact during my studies. She is the professor who best embodies what I had hoped for when I joined Emlyon. I was impressed by her background and her teaching skills. She shared her knowledge with passion, in a dynamic way, she is one of the rare few professors for whom I wanted to provide high quality work ».
