2011 Student-Teacher-Event in GlasgowPublished on 09/30/11
The Society’s one-day “Student-Teacher-Events” (STE) have been hugely successful, attracting large numbers of students (and their teachers) studying Economics and Business Studies and who might be interested in taking Economics at University. Typically, about 350 students from all over Scotland have participated in the lectures, experiments, and games. First held in 2007, the events have been based at the Scottish Parliament, the Glasgow Science Centre and the Royal Bank of Scotland’s Gogarburn headquarters.
This year, we wish to modify the event by only inviting teachers. For this reason, we cordially invite you to join us for a half-day CPD event to be held on November 1st at the Supper Club in Glasgow. There will be keynote lectures by Andrew Ross (Government Economic Service and HM Treasury) and Professor John Sloman (University of the West of England and Director of the Economics Network) as well as moderated discussions with the participating teachers. The event will begin with a complimentary lunch at noon, and end no later than five o’clock in the afternoon. The event will be free of charge.
If you are interested in attending, please register by sending a short email to Dr. Harminder Battu (h.battu(at)abdn.ac.uk) by 1st October, 2011. Please note that we can only accept a total of 50 delegates on a first-come-first-serve basis.
