In Spring 2020, universities made a range of tough decisions, at various times, to close campuses and move teaching and learning online. We had to quickly learn how to use new technologies for large and small group teaching, rework our material for an online setting, rewrite assessments and find ways to remain connected with our students. We have learnt a lot. It is important we build on the lessons to adapt economics education for the future. The session is organised by the Teaching Committee of the EEA.
