The Economics Network is pleased to announce that it will be holding its biennial international Developments in Economics Education conference at the University of Exeter’s Business School on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th September 2013. The keynote address will be given by one of Britain’s leading economists, John Kay.
The deadline for all proposals has passed (Monday 15th April 2013).
DEE 2013 session proposals focused on research or practice in economics education can be one of the following:
- Papers. If your paper is accepted, you will have the option of submitting a full paper by Friday 28th June 2013. If you wish your paper to be considered for publication in the International Review of Economics Education please indicate this when submitting your final paper. Paper sessions will last 30 minutes (to include 5 or 10 minutes for questions).
- Interactive workshops. The interactive workshop sessions will be 45 minutes long and place an emphasis on discussion and group activities over presentation (i.e. presentations should last no longer than 10 minutes in total).
- Posters. There will be a dedicated poster session during the conference. Detailed guidelines for poster production will be sent to those who have a poster accepted.
We welcome submissions on any topic relating to advancements and innovation in economics education and the themes below. However, DEE 2013 will have a particular focus on the recent changes in higher education, including increased fees and consequently student expectations. We are interested in how economics can tackle these challenges and how teaching staff can integrate skills development into the classroom.
- Recent changes in higher education and the impact on economics education
- Engaging and motivating students
- Developing student skills and employability
- Curriculum structure and content
- Teaching mathematics
- Assessment and feedback
- Games, experiments and simulations
- Problem-based learning and case studies
- Linking research and teaching
