Teaching Symposium for early career lecturers and teaching assistants

This Symposium has been designed as a practically-focused event relevant to new lecturers and graduate teaching assistants of economics. The Symposium will:

  • explore teaching and assessment of both essay-based and quantative economics
  • discuss approaches to module and programme design in economics
  • provide a practical workshop session for delegates to improve their presentation skills and confidence in small and large group teaching
  • share new ideas of how to deliver economics teaching
  • consider how to make economics relevant and more engaging for students
  • offer delegates the opportunity to meet and network with other early years economics staff
  • provide delegates with practical tips, activities and materials to use in their teaching practice

The Symposium will complement Economics Network workshops for graduate teaching assistants and new lecturers, but previous attendance at these is not necessary.

Draft programme now available.

The symposium is £40 for GTAs and new lecturers based in UK Higher Education Institutions and £100 for those based in international HEIs.
Places are offered on a first come-first served basis. Travel will not be reimbursed.
