An Economics Professional Learning Day will be held on Wednesday 25 May to assist teachers in developing their understating of new elements of the 2016 Economics 3 course.

The day, run in conjunction with staff from the School of Business and Economics, University of Tasmania, will allow teachers to develop a common approach to the new elements of the Economics 3 course, in particular around the issues of cost benefit analysis, environmental economics, diversity and social justice.

The PL day will be conducted on Wednesday 25th May between 10.00am and 3.00pm in either Ross or Campbell Town (the venue will be confirmed by the end of the week)

The day will provide a mix of theory and practice. It will inform your understating of these new course requirements and concepts of social justice, diversity and environmental matters in economic terms at a level commensurate with our students and consistent with the curriculum. Further the day will demonstrate appropriate methodologies and ways of questioning we can use with our students to explain and make real these issues, as well as work-shopping some practical examples which we can take back to the classroom.

It is strongly recommend that economics teachers attend this PL as it is a unique opportunity to collectively develop our understanding and expertise in a consistent manner of these critically important course elements, in particular as we approach the mid-year examinations.
