One Day Workshops for Economics Postgraduate Teaching Assistants/ Tutors

The Economics Network is pleased to announce its Autumn workshop series. The workshops complement any generic-based institutional training delegates might receive (and in some institutions exempts attendees from parts of such training) and are facilitated by experienced economics lecturers.

The workshops are specifically designed to meet the needs of Economics Postgraduate Teaching Assistants/Tutors (GTA’s) with a focus on small-group classes, tutorials, seminars and workshops.
