By Alvin Birdi and Ashley Lait, the Economics Network
Published May 2014

As part of its continual efforts to improve the service it provides to lecturers and teachers of HE economics, the Network ran its first ever Symposium for Early Careers Lecturers and Graduate Teaching Assistants at the LSE on 2nd April.

This event arose as a result of feedback from previous training events in which delegates expressed a desire to see more practice-based training particularly in specific content areas such as econometrics.

Consequently, in the 2000/1 academic year I introduced a Personal Response System (PRS) in the lectures. (Note 1)
