The Economics Network

Improving economics teaching and learning for over 20 years


Residential Workshops for New Economics Lecturers

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 Economics Network runs residential two-day workshops specifically designed to meet the needs of new and early-career lecturers in economics.

The main aim is to discuss and evaluate what makes effective teaching of economics: including lecturers; seminars and small-group teaching; assessment and feedback; e-learning; module/unit design; classroom experiments and games. There will also be time at the end of the workshop to reflect on key issues and to plan next steps.

This workshop is just one of the ways we support new and early career lecturers. They complement any generic-based institutional courses that delegates attend. Participants receive a certificate of attendance, which maps the workshop activities and outcomes to the UK Professional Standards Framework.

The next residential workshop for new and early-career economics lecturers will be on the 14th and 15th of October in Bristol.  The event is free of charge for all new and early economics lecturers at UK higher education institutions. Booking for the workshop will be available shortly. 

Feedback on past events

A report from an attendee at last year’s Bristol workshop describes it as “arguably the most rewarding workshop days I have attended on teaching and economics – and I have been to quite a few of these things”.

The Economics Network acknowledges the support of the Royal Economic Society and the Scottish Economic Society in delivering these events.
