Ideas Worth Teaching Awards 2017 presented by Aspen Institute for the Economic Alternative Models course
The Economic Alternative Models course targets students with a general background in economics. It provides insights on new business models and alternatives to conventional economic theories. Through this course, we expect to make students aware that, in today's world, things are rapidly changing. In this context, conventional economics does not provide the necessary models and solutions to the challenges we are facing (from poverty, inequality, financial crisis to climate change). The course presents new alternative economic models. Further, it opens the debate and conducts students to reflect on those developments. If these new economic models provide solutions, they also have negative effects. It might be too early to realize, but early enough to see the signs. Key to this course is developing critical thinking skills. Another key aspect is to present the range of possibilities and solutions and encourage students to be innovative and creative, as well as inclusive.
This course was developed by Sandrine Stervinou, Claire-Isabelle Roquebert, Elvire Bornand, Cécile Renault and Céline Louche.
