New series of online student talks from RBA

For 2021, the RBA have scheduled an extensive series of online talks throughout the academic year, via Zoom. There are two talk types to choose from:

Monetary Policy & Current Economic Conditions (aimed at Years 11 and 12) – An economist will share insights on how the RBA conducts monetary policy, and current conditions in the Australian economy. A recent graduate will also share insights on his or her career path and role, discussing the benefits of studying Economics. Introduction to Economics (aimed at Years 9 and 10) – An economist will provide an introduction to the economy, the role of the RBA, and the benefits of studying economics.
Talks from February to May 2021 have now been uploaded to the website. Teachers can register for any of the talks and will be sent a link nearer the time, which they will be able to share with their students.  
As with all the RBA’s resources, talks and events are free.  
Registrations can be made at: https://www.rba.gov.au/education/book-a-talk/

Vale Chris Stone

On the 7th January 2021, Chris Stone the elected President of the Economics Teachers’ Association of Western Australia (ETAWA) passed away suddenly. The Association extends its condolences to Chris’ family and friends. As a life member of the Association, Chris was a role model and highly respected Economics and Humanities and Social Sciences teacher. His contribution extended beyond the classroom as a curriculum and textbook writer, and through his work in assessment and moderation. Chris made a difference in education and his knowledge, wisdom and enthusiam for teaching economics will be greatly missed.
