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.

GTA Workshops 2011

One Day Workshops for Economics Postgraduate Teaching Assistants/ Tutors

The Economics Network is pleased to announce its Autumn workshop series. The workshops complement any generic-based institutional training delegates might receive (and in some institutions exempts attendees from parts of such training) and are facilitated by experienced economics lecturers.

The workshops are specifically designed to meet the needs of Economics Postgraduate Teaching Assistants/Tutors (GTA’s) with a focus on small-group classes, tutorials, seminars and workshops.


Theory and Background

There is a vast literature on assessment in higher education, some of it is directly related to economics.
