Economics education in India is, by and large, deficient in pluralism in terms of course contents, pedagogic methods, and representation of students and teachers from diverse backgrounds. The intricacies of methodological nuances and historical debates in the discipline of Economics remain elusive to most students, and at best, depend on the teacher’s own knowledge of such topics. The lack of diverse economic traditions and alternative approaches within the curriculum disables students to deal with economic issues that can be vexing as a consequence. There is a need to construct alternative teaching and learning processes of Economics in the classroom and beyond.
This two-day conference is being envisaged to confront a few of these challenges and include concrete curricular and pedagogic recommendations to enhance the teaching and learning process in Economics in India.
