Become a teaching fellow

Let's build the economics education of the future!

Do you want to use our open-access e-learning material in your classes?

Do you want to offer new possibilities to your students and let them produce learning material?

Do you want to create learning and teaching material and share it internationally?

Do you want to become part of an international community of young scholars and lecturers that design the economics education of the future?

 Then register as an Exploring Economics teaching fellow!

As a teaching fellow, we will accompany you for one semester and offer our support to enrich one or several classes of yours. There are three different levels of cooperation during the Exploring Economics teachers fellowship.


 Level A: Use our material in teaching

We provide an introduction to Pluralist Economics in the form of 13 infographics and high-quality introductory articles of ten schools of thought in economics. Our visualisation of Pluralist Economics follows an own standing scientific categorization that was developed for Exploring Economics:

 Making the incommensurable comparable: a comparative approach to pluralist economics education.

We offer an evaluation of the material used in teaching. Your university or institute can additionally appear on the Exploring Economics website as a user of the material.


 Level B: Offer new possibilities for your students

Students can use Exploring Economics for self-education (e.g. the  Orientation section in order to get an overview of different schools of thought or the  Discover section for student research on specific topics)

Students can as well create new learning material in class and gain experience in publishing while gaining credits: Offer course examinations consisting of the production of an essay, dossier, wiki article or creative content. The production and review process are supported by the Exploring Economics academic team.


 Level C: Share and create learning material

You can record lectures and make them available for the Pluralist Economics Youtube Channel under a creative commons license.
You can make your learning and teaching material (e.g. course syllabi, reading lists and instructions, lecture slides, exercises) available for Exploring Economics under a creative commons licence.

You can create teaching essays or teaching dossiers to share your teaching experiences with students and other teachers internationally. You and your institution can co-create Learning material (as teaching manuals and readers, lecture series and slides, MOOCS) together with Exploring Economics and external funders.


How to register

Fill out the contact form and tell us something about your teaching background, your affiliation and your preferred level of cooperation. We will then get back to you with more detailed information on how to proceed.

The upcoming Exploring Economics teaching fellowship is oriented at winter term 2019/2020. However, we encourage you to register at any time of the year in order to exchange ideas and prepare cooperation for the upcoming semester.
