Are you an Egyptian junior faculty member with an interest in pluralist economics? Then this could be the workshop series for you!

The Institute for Education and Social Innovation, Heliopolis University, and Exploring Economics invites Egyptian junior academic faculty from Economics, Finance and related disciplines to join our workshop series on pluralist economics. Running from November 2021 to December 2021, 4 workshops will introduce you to the main ideas of pluralist economics, and help you develop your own teaching materials for use in your teaching and publication on the Exploring Economics website. You will work with experts with experience in the innovative teaching of pluralist economics, and build networks with both individuals and institutions.

Workshop 1: Introduction to Pluralist Economics (02/11/2021)

The first workshop will be led and moderated by several lecturers and experts from different countries and teaching contexts. Accompanying this is the introduction of various teaching techniques which can be used and an introduction to the field of online-based learning and teaching resources.

Workshop 2: The development of teaching materials (08/11/2021)

This workshop will include both additional inputs from lecturers with teaching experience in heterodox economics and an interactive exchange on how to design digitally based teaching materials.

Workshop 3: Refining teaching materials (24/11/2021)

This workshop will focus on didactical and technical issues that are important when designing your own teaching material. Participants of the program will have the opportunity to present first results from drafting teaching material or implementing it to teaching, and receive feedback.

Workshop 4: Self-designed teaching sessions (06/12/2021)

The workshop will again be accompanied by didactical and teaching experts who will give thorough feedback on the teaching materials developed in the course of the program.
