Curriculum Development:

In my roles as Teaching Assistant, I helped redesign the units. Specifically, I re-wrote the tutorials and created the following assessment material:

  • Macroeconomic Principles: A narrative interview. To ground concepts taught in class in the real-world, students interview someone in their life about an economic event.

  • Macroeconomic Analysis: Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) project. Students work in groups and use concepts taught in the unit to predict the RBA’s decision regarding the interest rate at their next board meeting.

  • Crawford Mentoring Program: set up a peer-to-peer mentoring program for first-year PhD candidates at Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University
