Rethinking Economics: Video lectures HET for secondary schools

Coordinators: Antonio MagliuloFiorenza Manzalini

For the past few years, there has been an increasing collaboration between secondary schools and universities, both in order to support the education of young students – with PTSO (Pathway for Transversal Skills and Orientation) or quality disciplinary insights – and in order to create opportunities for the orientation in the academic environment.

For this reason, AISPE has decided to organize a series of self-produced HET video lectures aimed at students as well as teachers of secondary schools. The aim is to publicize and promote HET through the production of materials for self-training and Integrated Digital Didactics, designed as an opportunity for intersection with curricular disciplines (e.g., history, philosophy, literature, mathematics, etc.) and prepared in a way suitable for the audience of secondary school students.

Each lesson can be enriched by materials, readings or bibliographic sources.

Below, we propose a possible rundown of essential topics for a basic training course, and invite you to participate by choosing (or adding) one or more topics from those not covered yet:

  1. Introduction by A. Magliulo
  2. Greco-Roman thought
  3. Judeo-Christian thought and Islamic thought
  4. Scholasticism and economic justice
  5. Mercantilism and economic nationalism
