Pluralist Economics Teaching Fellowship

Application process was extended until 31th March, 23:59 CET


Pluralist Economics Teaching Fellowship 

You are frustrated with mainstream economic teaching and want to do it better? The Pluralist Economics Teaching Fellowship could give you some inspiration on how to create pluralist/heterodox economics courses or adopt your current teaching material. The online course shall provide you with some concrete examples and tools on how to diversify your economics teaching, create a space to exchange among fellow teachers, and give you the opportunity to facilitate the workshop you created for the Summer Academy for Pluralist Economics (find here the link from last year's Summer Academy). 

Program Overview

The Teaching Fellowship is organised around six lectures with input from different lecturers on examples, techniques and principles for pluralist teaching. Additionally, there will be multiple meetings on the side to give you the space to create your own pluralist economics course and thereby put your learnings into practice. You can choose whether you prefer working in a group on a shared topic or individually on your own teaching material. 

Who can Participate?

The program is generally oriented towards people who are teaching economics or economic topics  - may it be in schools or universities. Nevertheless, you don't need to have lots of teaching experiences already as long as you are motivated to get involved in teaching activities in the future. Ideally, you should already be aware of the lack of pluralism in content and approaches in economics. However, it is also fine if you are interested in a particular economics-related topic that might be disregarded by mainstream economic theory. 

Technical Info

The Pluralist Economics Teaching Fellowship starts in April and lasts until the end of July. Ideally, by the end of July, you finished designing your own workshop so you are ready to facilitate it at the Summer Academy for Pluralist Economics 2022 in August.

All meetings will take place via Zoom at 2 pm Central European Time.
