UTS Business School is pleased to be hosting the 22nd Australasian Teaching Economics Conference (ATEC). The conference theme in 2017 is The Evolving Nature of Economics and Business Education and will explore the two sets of forces currently posing challenges for economics and business educators: the changing nature of management in higher education; and the changing nature of the Australian economy itself. One of the objectives of the 2017 conference is to facilitate critical reflection on the impact of both sets of forces on economics and business education. The conference will also canvass a broader range of topics and will consider papers relevant to any area of economics or business education.
Who is this for?
Educators in economics and related business disciplines such as finance, marketing, management and accounting are strongly encouraged to participate especially where they wish to reflect on pedagogical methods that may be applicable across business disciplines. This includes full and part time academics as well as high school teachers in Economics and or Business Studies.
What is ATEC?
The objective of ATEC each year is to promote better teaching in economics and other business disciplines, as well as the discussion and critical analysis of measures to enhance teaching quality in these fields at both tertiary and secondary levels. This encompasses teaching methods, economics curricula and design, and educational policy and management as they bear upon economics and business education.
