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.
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.
As Senior Associate and member of the Exec Board of the Economics Network, Stefania works on training and professional development of Economics Educators in Higher Education and she contributes to the GTA/Early Career Lecturers training courses.
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 the Working Group on "Decolonising Teaching Practices" as part of the Education Committee for the Faculty of Social Sciences. Stefania is Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Fellow of the Warwick International Higher Education Academy (2017 - 2021) and Associate Fellow of the Warwick Institute of Engagement.
