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.

The panel will discuss the implications of the future of labor on inequality. How is the future of labor affected by long-term trends, such as demographic change, digitalization and the climate crisis? What is the effect of the war in Ukraine and the new geopolitical situation? How will these trends affect inequality? What are the main challenges and potentials?
