 Changing The Face Of Economics Teaching : Rhodes University:

The way we need to change the way we think about teaching , in a transforming society. Mr David Fryer, Economics lecturer, won the Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award in 2020 and presented his accompanying lecture last week, focusing on the potential to reconfigure undergraduate economics so that it is more in touch with the realities of students and the futures they face. The award is meant to recognise and celebrate excellence, innovation, and dedication in and to teaching. The Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award is presented annually to an individual who has demonstrated to a panel of peers that their work as an academic teacher is truly distinguished. Having witnessed dramatic changes in society and seeing these reflected on campus and in the classroom, he has been committed to teaching in these transforming environments in a proactive and caring way. Professor Fryer has been teaching economics for 25 years and has shown a demonstrable passion for teaching and the power of education to transform society.
