Events

Dissemination is an integral part of what we do at CTaLE. To this end, we invite speakers from both outside and inside UCL to speak at our regular Economics Education seminar series. We also present our work at conferences and seminars, like the American Economic Association’s annual Conference on Teaching and Research in Economics Education and the Economics Network’s biennial Developments in Economics Education conference. We also showcase our undergraduate students’ research in the annual ExploreEcon undergraduate research conference held at UCL.
