New course: the economics mythbusters

Posted on

The New Economics Foundation has just opened applications for its 7 week online course based on the myth buster series now running in the Guardian. It's linked up with others including UNITE, TSSA, Wales TUC, Friends of the Earth and Quaker Peace and Social Witness to train 50 each of their supporters and staff. But they've also got 120 places open for individuals. Here are the essentials:

  • 7 online classes over 7 weeks running every Tuesday from May 14th
  • Classes will be led by speakers like Owen Jones, Polly Toynbee and Richard Murphy
  • Interactive Q&As and webcam tutorials allow you to practice debunking the myths with other participants

Applications are open until Friday 26th  April at 5pm. The total cost of taking the course is a subsidised fee of just £50, working out at around £7 a class to help cover the cost of the software/development. For more information and to apply for the course log onto www.neweconomics.org/mythbusters/onlinecourse.

I'm looking forward to it.
