Distance Teaching Main Topic of 2020 Teaching Fellows Course

7 August, 2020

Some 59 new Teaching Fellows from more than a dozen countries are participating in the 2020 Teaching Fellows Pedagogical Course.

The course features workshops and group discussions on modern Economics teaching practices and also provides an excellent opportunity for young teachers in different countries to learn from other teachers. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, this year’s courses are being held exclusively online using the new CERGE-EI Digital Media Center.

The CERGE-EI Teaching Fellows program was launched in 2007 to increase the quality of undergraduate teaching in Economics faculties throughout the CEE and CIS regions.

Since then, Teaching Fellows have taught in 25 countries, reaching more than 142,000 students. In the 2020/21 academic year alone, 165 courses will be taught by Teaching Fellows awardees at 75 universities in 21 countries.
