Comments from participants.

  • As Matthew has said the resources available are typically cumbersome and awkward and even the syllabus needs to be reimagined by the teacher for best results. I like the approach Matthew has developed to effectively address this.

  • Matthew was a fantastic and engaging teacher with plenty of realistic and usable tips that I can integrate into my teaching. It was great! 

  • Very engaging PL which really tackled the issues faced in supporting our Economics students to reach their full potential. 

  • Brilliant day, covered a lot in a short amount of time. Matthew was extremely generous with his time and resources.

  • Very effective, professional and insightful.

  • A worthwhile and enjoyable learning experience.

  • Very good, detailed, fast paced and a great way to rethink how to teach the economics course.

  • I really enjoyed the PL and learnt a lot of teaching strategies to engage my students. Matthew was an excellent presenter and extremely knowledgeable.
