Associate Professor | Deputy Director of UG Studies Economics
Deputy Chair Faculty Social Sciences Education Committee
Stefania is currently working in various research projects on Economic Education including how students engage with resources and how these resources contribute to their performance in assessments. She is also editor for "Teaching Macroeconomics: A Modern and Inclusive Approach" as part of the Elgar Guides to Teaching, to be published in 2022.
In January 2022, Stefania was appointed as an advisor to review the QAA Economics Subject Benchmark Statement, which defines the academic standards for Economics graduates and describe the nature of the subject.
Stefania is Diversity Champion for the Royal Economic Society. In this role, Stefania will help to embed diversity into the RES decision-making process and promote diversity across all the Society's activities. Stefania is a member of the Executive Committee and a trustee of the RES.
Her current research looks at how to create more inclusive teaching environments at university. The most recent project aims to understand whether the changes in assessments introduced after COVID19 can help us to engage with more inclusive pedagogical practices. Other projects look at how students engage with different teaching resources and how this engagement affects their attainment, and how assessment design affects awarding gaps among different demographic groups. She gives regular talks on these topics, you can find the more recent talks here.
At Warwick, she co-facilitates the Anti-Racist Teaching Pedagogy Forum and chairs the sub-group on "Decolonising Social Sciences" as part of the Faculty of Social Sciences' Education Committee.
Stefania is SFHEA, CTaLE Associate, Senior Associate and Exec member of the Economics Network, Alumna Fellow WIHEA and Associate Fellow of the Warwick Institute of Engagement.
