28 – 30 June 2021

3-6pm BST // 10am-1pm EDT

Welcome to #TeachECONference2021, the second annual virtual conference on economics education organised by UCL CTaLE and Cornell University!

With the success of last year’s conference, we expanded TeachECONference2021 into a 3-day live event and a separate asynchronous session available to view further down the page. After each day’s panels and presentations, conference participants can wind down in our sponsored Networking Mixers. Each Mixer will include short introductions and demos from our sponsors, some fun, interactive games, and plenty of time to mingle, catch up with old friends, and make new friends.

Please make sure to register for each conference session and Networking Mixer you are interested in attending.

There is no registration fee and everyone is welcome to join us. Each conference session (except for Networking Mixers) will be recorded and uploaded to CTaLE’s YouTube channel.
