Since the Department of Political Science was established in the mid-1960s, due to the various national constraints, teaching political science has always had its own challenges. Many staff members had in the past been disciplined, including some asked to leave due to their political leanings and where the authorities are believed to have been ‘upset’ with their political stance. In this context, as the National University of Singapore has moved towards ‘general education’, teaching political science, especially a module such as Government and Politics of Singapore, has thrown up different kind of challenges. This study analyzes how the module has been taught over the years and what innovations have been introduced to ensure effective teaching and learning takes place. Two surveys were conducted in this endeavour. The key thrust of the study is the challenge of effective teaching in big classes in political science in Singapore.
