Plenary Session on “Effective and efficient teaching: Tips and tricks for young scholars”

Antonio Cabrales Goitia | Thomas Siedler | Barbara Biasi

For up-and-coming scholars aspiring to a tenured post, having enough time for research and publishing in high-ranking journals is crucial. At the same time, teaching obligations are part of the job and courses need to be designed, prepared, and held. How can you as academics balance these two demands? How can you offer effective teaching and ensure satisfied students while optimizing your preparation time? What are the most useful tools and media available and what tips and tricks can you get from more experienced scholars to help you achieve this? In this session, short presentations will be given by Antonio Cabrales Goitia, Thomas Siedler and Barbara Biasi on the subject of efficient teaching at universities and business schools. They will give you pointers gathered over many years of teaching to help you along your career path.

Panel discussion and welcome reception

Thursday 15th December, 18:00-20:30

How is the future of labor affected by long-term trends, such as demographic change, digitalization and the climate crisis?

  3. The scientific programme chair collects nominations from the programme committee members and selects the winner or, alternatively, the programme chair is free to nominate a committee that he/she will chair, to select the winners.
  4. The prize is awarded by the programme chair at one of the plenary events of EWMES.
  5. The winner is announced on the websites of the Econometric Society and EWMES.

The prize committee consisted of Uta Schönberg (chair), Basile Grassi, Julia Schaumburg and Galina Zudenkova.
