RES Nuffield Foundation Workshop: Teaching and Learning with CORE Mon 18th June 2018 9:00 am - Tue 19th June 2018 4:30 pm University of Bristol (G13, Life Sciences Building, Tyndall Avenue, Bristol, BS8 1TH)

This two-day workshop, run by the CORE project and Economics Network, will focus on effective and innovative teaching of economics using the CORE texts (The Economy, Economy, Society, and Public Policy and Doing Economics), and their associated teaching and learning resources. It will introduce participants to the rationale behind the content and pedagogy of CORE and offer practical tips on designing and teaching a course based on these texts. The workshop facilitators will include authors of the CORE texts, experienced educators and a Royal Shakespeare Company trained actor.

Sessions will include:

  • An introduction to the CORE vision and pedagogy
  • A detailed look at how one might teach specific units
  • An exploration of teaching CORE with a flipped classroom approach
  • Effectively using voice and presence in the classroom (with a voice coach who trained with the RSC)
  • A practical introduction to using games in the classroom

The workshop is designed for:

  • experienced users of CORE,
  • those thinking about using any of the three CORE texts,
  • advanced PhD students and teaching assistants.

We do not have sufficient funding to support accommodation and travel costs for all participants but will attempt to provide at least partial support if meeting these costs would cause hardship.
