Concept based teaching and learning approaches in Economics

Date: 09/16/2020

Time: 5:00 pm

Timezone:

It is one thing to have definitions for the nine concepts which have been integrated into the 2022 Guide, but quite another to develop effective concept based teaching and learning (CBTL) strategies for use with our Economics students. The aim of this webinar is to provide you with practical and effective tools that can be used in your next lesson.


By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:


– Understand the wider advantages that a CBTL approach offers your students.
– Leverage the use of CBTL strategies to develop your students’ critical thinking, in such a way that it benefits all components (not just the IA’s).
– Scaffold CBTL approaches over a period of time.
– Have a ‘go to’ toolbox of concept formation strategies that you can use over and over again.
