Theory of the Firm can be tough to teach under normal circumstances. Helping students grasp these concepts while they are learning remotely makes it even tougher. How can we simplify the process for them and how can we best deliver the content in an engaging way? This webinar aims to provide practical insights and suggestions to help you do just that.

By the end of it, we will have:

– Identified key principles to guide our teaching through this unit.
– Explored some useful online platforms to help us increase our students’ engagement.
– Discussed different formative and summative assessment options while in lockdown. It is more important than ever to keep the feedback loop going.
