Economics Network Events

Developments in Economics Education Conference
6-8 September 2017 | University College London
We are delighted to announce that the 2017 Developments in Economics Education conference will take place at University College London, in collaboration with UCL's Centre for Teaching and Learning Economics (CTaLE). 
DEE is the UK's leading conference on economics education. Sessions at the conference include paper presentations and interactive workshops which introduce new and innovative ideas on teaching and learning methods, the economics curriculum and student engagement.
The call for papers is now open on the DEE webpage and we welcome submissions for paper and workshop sessions, as well as posters. The deadline for submissions will be 24 February 2017.
At the 2017 DEE conference, there will be special sessions on the themes of 'students as researchers' and 'students as communicators', but we of course welcome submissions in all areas of economics education.

Economics: the Profession and the Public
5 May 2017 | HM Treasury
This one day symposium, hosted by the Economics Network and the Government Economic Service, will bring together economists from academia, the media and government to discuss the difficulties of communicating and discussing economics with the general public. 
The event is a response to the nature and level of the debate on economics that preceded both the EU referendum and the US presidential election, although the issues raised by the symposium are more general than those two single events.
The event is free of charge, but registration is required. For further information and to sign up, please visit the event web page.
Early Careers Workshop
6 & 7 April 2017 | University of Leeds
This is an interactive two day workshop focused on innovative and effective economics teaching, designed for early careers staff in the first few years of teaching. 
The workshop is endorsed by the Royal Economic Society and Scottish Economic Society and is mapped to the UK Professional Standards Framework.
Booking for the workshop is now open, visit the event webpage to sign up!
