With the success of TeachECONference2020, this year we expanded the conference to be a 3-day event running from June 28th – 30th, 2021; 3pm-5pm BST / 10am-12pm EDT. The conference will be hosted on Zoom and live-streamed on CTaLE’s YouTube channel.
The conference will open with a plenary discussion, focused on the challenges and opportunities of teaching economics in 2020/21.

There will then be several session of participant presentations, and we will close the conference with a second panel discussion on Best Practices and New Ideas for Teaching Econometrics led by:

We are looking for people to submit ideas for 10-minute presentations on any topic that they think will be of interest to people involved with economics education at the university level. This can include topics that relate to what happens in the classroom and/or online, your perspectives on assessment, how you approach student support and a whole lot more. The presentation can be a reflection on your own experience, research in progress or a paper that is almost ready for publication. We are interested in topics that engage the audience and provide insights on what it is like to teach in our ever-evolving world.
Proposals are limited to 1800 characters (i.e., ~300 words) and the deadline is February 1st 2021 at 11:59pm GMT/6:59pm EST.
Notification of acceptance is the week of March 1st 2021.
