Learning to Learn:
We have created Learning to Learn in Economics to help you familiarising with our blended learning approach and discover and engage with the tools and resources available within the Department to succeed in your learning experience.
Starting a new degree might feel as daunting as it is exciting. Learning to Learn in Economics is a self-study module organised in different sections. Each section includes an e-book or a set of useful external resources that will give you general information about:
1) Our teaching and learning delivery strategy.
2) Specific guidelines on how to use our Virtual Learning Environment (e.g., Moodle) and other technology tools used within the Department to communicate with students and colleagues (e.g., Tabula and MS Teams).
3) The wellbeing and pastoral support available within the Economics Department.
4) Student engagement and career opportunities.
