EconTEAching

Group meeting around computer

Within this series, CTaLE is partnering with University of Warwick to host interactive seminars on all things Economics, whether it be assessments, navigating surveys, teaching methods – anything. It’s designed to be a space to chat about ideas, how-to’s, best practices and to take on questions that the #teachecon community might have. One might say we’ll be meeting just in time for a cuppa tea on London time.

Our format will include a guest feature in each session. A chair will start the hour off with an interview-style discussion with the guest before opening up to general Q&A with participants. Given the current circumstances, this series will be held online via Zoom.
