SES Annual Conference

The 2017 Annual Conference is planned for April 2017 in Perth. The Society welcomes papers and proposals for organised sessions from all areas of Economics, Economic Policy and Econometrics from academics and practitioners regardless of sector.

The Society places particular emphasis on the application of economics to policy and there will be invited sessions in separate policy and pedagogy streams.

The Economics Network

New Lecturers Workshop & Early Careers Teaching Symposium

Workshop: Implementing and Teaching CORE (May 25th - University of Glasgow)

The aim of this workshop is to introduce delegates to CORE, including what differentiates it from other first year economics principles modules, and the impact its implementation has on teaching. Presenters will share their experiences of teaching CORE in a number of universities and address both the benefits and difficulties of implementing such a course. Delegates will also be introduced to the additional resources available for teachers, as well as given examples of how the material has been used in the classroom in a variety of settings.

This workshop will be hosted by the University of Glasgow and supported by the Scottish Economic Society.

The traditional Scottish Government Economic Policy Forum is planned for October 2016 at the Scottish Government offices in Edinburgh.
