Associates of the Economics Network

Our Associates are experienced members of the higher education economics community with a passion for developing and evaluating effective pedagogic innovation. Their role is to promote and engage with the activities of the Network such as running events or workshops, contributing teaching resources to the website, writing newsletter articles and taking part in research projects.

Our Senior Associates contribute to all aspects of the Network's activities including research; planning and presenting workshops; and authoring resources, such as handbook chapters, case studies and documentation (for example for workshop endorsement). This group also offer advice and support to the Network on its provision and how it can better serve the discipline.
