Call for change in the winter term 2020/21: Reforming economic education
Econ4Future instead of business as usual!
Changing the syllabus
There are now comprehensive collections of literature, didactic materials and best practice examples of pluralistic, socio-economic university teaching. We encourage lecturers to use them as inspiration for preparing their teaching.
After the last financial crisis students began to organize themselves institutionally as change agents. With the help of these structures, students and teachers can network and work together to bring about change in economic higher education.
Finally, there is a growing number of innovative educational programs, which proves that a transformation of economics higher education is essentially a question of pedagogical and political will. We call on faculty or university officials, as well as policy-makers to study these innovations and to implement reforms. Proposals in this regard have recently been put forward. It is past due to create the conditions for a long-term institutional change in economic education.
