On the agenda for May's EconEdChat were 3 questions:
What do Economics teachers need to know about the Discover Economics campaign?
How do we ensure students get practice using data and what data sources are useful?
What experience or knowledge do we want students to arrive with at the start of Economics A-Level?
This post focuses on the first question. We were lucky enough to be joined by Professor Sarah Smith, Head of the School of Economics at Bristol, and Co-Chair of Discover Economics.
That report on Career Options for Economics Grads is amazing, would highly recommend taking a look. There are some great graphics in there to use at Open Evenings (I'd recommend printing pages 8-15)
I've revamped those posters I mentioned, you can read about those here
Econ Ed Chat takes place the first Wednesday of the month at 6pm GMT. All welcome.
