By Alvin Birdi and Ashley Lait, the Economics Network
Published May 2014

As part of its continual efforts to improve the service it provides to lecturers and teachers of HE economics, the Network ran its first ever Symposium for Early Careers Lecturers and Graduate Teaching Assistants at the LSE on 2nd April.

This event arose as a result of feedback from previous training events in which delegates expressed a desire to see more practice-based training particularly in specific content areas such as econometrics.

Annual Learning & Teaching Awards 2013

The Economics Network's teaching awards were presented at the DEE Conference 2013 at the University of Exeter on the 5th September.

This year the Economics Network received an unprecedented number of nominations. Originally, the awards were in two categories:

  • Outstanding Teacher Award
  • Best New Lecturer Award

However, given the number and range of nominations we have an additional award this year in the category of ‘Outstanding Student Support’.
