I am writing to invite you to contribute to the hefce-funded TRUE project. TRUE aims to make teaching resources – syllabi, reading lists, problem sets, assessments, etc – freely available online. The relevant pages on the Economics Network web site are in the form of a wiki. Teachers who express interest will receive a login and can edit the pages – in particular, by uploading their teaching resources, or they can simply email me the files they want uploaded.
For heterodox economists of all kinds this is a great opportunity to show what we are doing in the classroom, to influence future generations of teachers, to inform students (thus allowing them to demand something different of their teachers), and to gain feedback on our teaching resources from our colleagues.
Please have a look at the heterodox economics TRUE page. You can then either (a) email me to request a login, which will enable you to start making changes, or (b) email the files you want uploaded and I will do it willingly. You can also make comments at the bottom of each page, and you can make contributions to the 13 other wikis, on development, econometrics, environmental economics, etc – please see the list of links at http://www.economicsnetwork.ac.uk/projects/oer.
Please note that where the course is taught does not matter – it does not have to be in the UK. Contributions must be in English, however. Material which is not yet actually taught but constitutes a suggested syllabus, etc, is fine, as long as that is made clear. Despite the title, materials relating to MSc-level courses are also welcome.
I hope you will want to take advantage of this opportunity and I look forward to hearing from you.
All the best
