The 25th Australasian Teaching Economics Conference (ATEC2021) will be hosted by the University of Queensland, Brisbane on 15 -16 July 2021. All presentations will be delivered via Zoom. 

The theme of the conference this year is Teaching Design for Cooperative Learning. Papers on this topic are encouraged, but submissions on any aspect of Economics Education are welcome too.

We are delighted to announce that Professor KimMarie McGoldrick (University of Richmond), a leading scholar in Economics Education and Cooperative Learning and co-editor of the Journal of Economic Education , will deliver the keynote lecture. 

A further highlight will be the presentation by Dr Jacqui Dwyer (Head of Information Department, RBA), regarding the latest insights of the RBA’s research on studying economics in Australia. 

There are no submission and registration fees.
