DEE 2021 Conference

Developments in Economics Education Conference 2021

Our eleventh DEE Conference will take place on 1–3 September 2021 at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. The Call for Papers closed in early March. Many thanks to everyone who submitted papers or workshops.

The Developments in Economics Education conference is a fantastic opportunity to showcase research, innovation and best practice in economics teaching. It is Europe's leading conference on economics in higher education.

See the links at the side of the page for previous DEE conferences. At all previous DEE conferences (2011–2019), 100% of respondents have said that they would recommend the event to their colleagues.

Coronavirus update

We hope that, by September, we shall be able to hold the conference in person at Heriot-Watt. However, we shall maximise the possibility of online participation for those prevented from travelling by COVID-19 (or any other cause).


We have invited proposals for submissions of two types:

  • Papers - presentations of research and novel teaching methods
  • Workshops - to share innovative teaching methods in an interactive environment

In addition to the abstract submitted, presenters of paper sessions will be expected to submit a 750 word detailed abstract by 1 August 2021 for the conference handbook.
