- Handbook for Economics Lecturers
This is a set of guides to inform and improve the practices of university teachers of economics. The guides, though self-contained, are grouped under four section headings of teaching, assessment, course design and evaluation. Each guide has been written and edited by academic economists with experience of a particular aspect of learning and teaching practice.
- Reflections on Teaching
Reflections on Teaching is dedicated to collating examples of innovative learning and teaching methods. The showcase will provide a range of short accounts on educational approaches used within the economics community. Each case study focuses on a particular innovation and consists of a brief description (250-500 words) that will address questions like what the purpose, how to integrate into the curriculum, how it works, problems to be encountered, and how the students respond.
