Professional Development

During this presentation Joshua will discuss how he is conducting in-class experiments with ECON20002(Intermediate Microeconomics) and ECON90034 (Economics of Finance) students using Moblab educational software.  The Moblab platform allows for interactive learning experiences which enhance students’ understanding of topics such as asset markets and goods markets, strategic interaction, and broader micro and macroeconomic concepts.

While the Moblab suite of tools could apply to several disciplines within FBE, this presentation will be of particular relevance for those teaching in the areas of microeconomics (principles and intermediate), macroeconomics (principles), game theory, finance, as well as experimental and behavioural economics.

Those attending this presentation will learn about Joshua’s experience in setting up and facilitating these experiments as well as the student feedback given to him following his recent teaching.
