The Enhancement of Teaching and Learning Economics in Higher Education: Digital Technology Approach

Millicent Adanne Eze


Digital technology can be observed in every aspect of our today’s society. It serves as the primary instrument needed in building knowledge societies for quality education.  Although, excellent teaching in higher education requires the sound knowledge of the subject and a right way of imparting the experience to the students. Economics teachers often face the problems of the best ways to help students understand the fundamental economic phenomena and the application of relevant economics terms to real-life situations. However, to overcome such issues calls for the need to discover new and appropriate teaching methods which should be in alignment with the needs and possibilities of economics students in higher education. To this effect, an appropriate pedagogical model is designed for the enhancement of teaching and learning of economics in higher education, especially in this era of the new-normal brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic which has disorganised the entire globe with unanticipated changes in every aspect of the society, including the educational sector in which the need/impact of digital technology cannot be overemphasised. The pedagogical model would lead to active, creative, collaborative, and highly engaged digital experiences for economic students in higher education.
