Training course for A level Economics teachers

The Macroeconomics, Growth and History Centre (MaGHiC) is holding a training course on 14 December 2015 (10.00-16.00) for A level Economics teachers to provide key knowledge from the latest research into the 2007/2008 financial crisis. The sessions are designed to be beneficial in teaching the new topics introduced by examination boards starting in September 2015. Participants are expected to have some background in economics at University level, but otherwise there are no prerequisites.

The course is divided into three sessions. The morning session will discuss the evolution of macroeconomic theory over time and review the Great Recession. The lunch session will introduce our approach towards teaching Economics at the University of Kent, while the afternoon session will cover economic policy issues and a historical comparison between the 2007/2008 crisis and the Great Depression of the 1930s. Each session will be structured as a presentation followed by discussion. The course will be held at the University of Kent Keynes College, and the programme for the day can be viewed here.

Places can be booked by emailing Dr Keisuke (Casey) Otsu at
