The Gender Institute has been awarded a LSE Vision Fund Grant  to build on good practice within the Gender Institute  and to expand existing innovative teaching practices. This project, led by Sumi Madhok, will build on existing good practice to enhance student experience through interdisciplinary and cross departmental events and strengthened research-led teaching provision. These practices prioritise interaction between students and staff, centre on cutting-edge approaches to feedback and assessment, and link their teaching practice to a range of assessment modes. The project also aims to further enhance student experience through interdisciplinary and cross departmental events, including interactive career development sessions with alumni, workshops with policy makers, and public lectures. The project also aims to strengthen the Gender Institute's research-led teaching provision across six specific courses in the 2016-17 academic year.

22nd March 2017 - GI418, Feminist Economics and Policy student conference

Connecting Scales, Concepts and Issues:  Holistic Approach to Economic Provisioning, Sustainable Development, Well-Being

Overview:
Times of economic, political and social crises prompt discussion of alternative ways of understanding their underpinning processes and alternative models of development. The purpose of this week’s session is to build on our feminist economics knowledge and understanding of the operation of macro and micro processes that shape socio-economic change with a view to developing a more economically and socially sustainable and inclusive society. To do so we will aim to develop a holistic framework that integrates these concerns, think about how this might be conceptualised and measured, and consider what kind of policies would need to be introduced in order to fulfil these objectives.
