Workshop: introducing CORE (11 March, Sheffield)

Sat 5th March 2016 | Blog

APicture1re you experimenting with the CORE material, or considering it for your economics course?

On 11 March 2016, Professors Wendy Carlin and Alvin Birdi will host the second workshop on CORE teaching, jointly organised with the Economics Network. The workshop will be hosted by the Department of Economics at the University of Sheffield and held at the university’s Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences.

The workshop is a great opportunity to find out how to make the switch a success from people who have been teaching using CORE. The workshop will cover:

  • How is CORE’s course different to a traditional text book?
  • What are the day-to-day challenges of CORE teaching, and how have our teachers tackled them successfully?
  • What do we (and will we) provide for teachers to help them teach?
  • What have we learned from our beta programme, and how are we going to improve CORE in the future?

Delegates will get a demonstration and preview of the additional resources we will be making available for teachers during 2016.

We have discovered that implementing an innovative new curriculum creates a lot of challenges, and we want to give you as much help as possible. If you can’t make it to Sheffield, we’re planning more workshops during 2016: look out for information here, or on our Twitter feed. Sign up for our Sheffield workshop on Eventbrite, here.

Admission is free, but places are limited.
