7 Conclusions

This chapter has argued that SGRP have an important role to play in teaching and learning economics and has suggested a number of ways in which lecturers can develop the effectiveness of their use of these resources in teaching. Effective use requires recognition of potential problems and working to overcome these through careful design, preparation and organisation. In economics we are blessed with a discipline that is rich in material suitable for an SGRP teaching strategy. With some investment of time it is possible to extend our repertoire of teaching skills and to engage students more fully in the process of learning.
