The Economics Network

Improving economics teaching and learning for over 20 years

Developing Reusable Learning Objects in Economics

An Economics Network funded project 2005-6

Institution: London Metropolitan University
Project leader: Guglielmo Volpe

The main aims of this project are:

  • Investigate the concept and the pedagogical value of RLOs, in particular within the field of economics;
  • Attend a training course on the optimal design and development of RLOs;
  • Develop at least two RLOs to be employed in either the Introduction to Microeconomics or the Introduction to Macroeconomics modules;

Make this mini-project a part of my wider National Teaching award Fellowship project where I intend to design and develop RLOs for the learning of a few 'key' economic concepts.
