Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

WOW! Economics aims to provide delegates with approaches and ready to use resources that promote high levels of engagement, a commitment to learning and a buzz of activity in the economics classroom!

All ideas and resources have been created by experienced teachers with our team including teachers currently delivering IB and A level Economics. The resources are tried and tested on students and enhanced by a professional design team and some clever IT trickery. The 50+ resources given to delegates on each course provide a variety of creative learning activities which stimulate and challenge economics students. The resources aim to assist the ever-enthusiastic Economics teacher in their quest to ensure students grasp those all-too-tricky concepts such as elasticities, theory of the firm and macro-economic objectives. These resources are aimed at all teachers, whatever their experience.

The day is highly interactive and provides plenty of opportunity for attendees to explore new learning activities, discuss how they are used and consider ways of adapting them to meet the individual needs of their learners.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with other Economics teachers and the sharing of teaching techniques and data sources provides a constant theme for the day.

WOW! Economics is structured to include resources that cover the following outcomes:

To Inspire and Engage – effective lesson starters designed to enthuse and engage the learner at the start of a lesson or introduction to a new topic.

Deliver Content Essentials – activities that deepen students’ knowledge and understanding of key economics topics, promote effective collaborative learning and help develop a confident, independent and resilient learner

Develop Exam Skills, higher order thinking and maximise student achievement

Once again thank you so much for the wonderful conference today.  I can't stop talking about the brilliance and wealth of reources to the rest of the department at Bromsgrove School - Varing Dahl

Just a note to thank you for such a productive course today. I liked the fact we were provided with practical, easily adaptable resources and ideas which we can use in the classroom. I am sure our students will benefit enormously, I plan to use some of the resources straightaway. – Anne Halliwell

Thanks to @tutor2u_jon and the team today for #wowecon and my new 50+ fun learning resources! Great day networking with other econ teachers. – Kelly Chalk

The day as a whole was really enlightening and goes to prove that you can teach a (relatively) old dog new tricks! Bryn Jones
