10 minute talk
In this presentation we, the Senior Committee of The Economist’s Society (the student society of UCL Economics), will reflect on the content and the format of events we have organised during the pandemic through a 10 minute synchronous presentation under Learning through Collaboration. Student community building is one of our key responsibilities, alongside extending opportunities for our members to comprehensively explore Economics beyond the lectures. We do this by organising extracurricular events like academic talks, socials, networking sessions, workshops and inviting submissions for our magazine, The Economic Tribune.
We will reflect on our activities to answer questions surrounding the following categories:
1. Relationships among students
2. Relationships between staff and students
3. Relationships between UCL and other universities
Specifically, we will discuss our Economics Conference, talks by three Nobel Laureates, the Drayton Discourse Podcast, Get to Know Your Professor series, Tribune Essay competition, Pub Quizzes and the inter-university Economics Debate.
