As as Economics teacher with over ten years experience in the classroom, an Economics degree from a top UK university and experience as an Economics examiner; I'm ideally placed to deliver this course. I've used all of my teaching know how to design this course in a way that will maximise student learning. Topics are delivered sequentially with each lesson building on the previous one so that no prior knowledge is required before taking the course. I'm aware of common misconceptions that students have and I deal with these explicitly throughout the course.
Furthermore, I'm aware that Economics is a subject best understand in the context of the real world. So I've included plenty of interesting and relevant examples in each section. Furthermore, the final section is entirely focused on the real world application of economic theories.
