The Economics Network has established a network of Key Contacts throughout UK Higher Education Institutions. This event explores current issues in teaching and learning in economics and gives Key Contacts the opportunity to inform the national strategy for supporting economics education.

In 2010 the conference focused on Responding to Student Feedback and Raising NSS Scores, and included discussion sessions on Collecting Student Feedback from Module Evaluations; Student Feedback from the NSS and Economics Network Student Surveys; Using Student Feedback to Change Practice.

Notes and resources from the 2010 conference can be found here.
