Economics Teaching and Learning Suggestions via Econ Network

 

[...] despite its importance, lecturers have traditionally found it hard to promote peer-to-peer interaction. With limited time during teaching sessions, lecturers often feel the pressure to solely focus on teaching the course content. 

In recent years, undergraduate economics teaching has been critiqued for its gender- neutral stance and the failure to expose students to heterodox approaches, such as those embedded in feminist economics. 

a very brief walk-through through an alternative content delivery technique which we introduced here for a year one advanced maths course for Economics students.
