The above NSW Institute of Teachers’ endorsed EBE NSW PD event (held in association with The University of Sydney Business School) was an outstanding success. Held at The University of Sydney, participants were able to hear Dr. Will Harvey speak on “Attracting, retaining and developing talent” and “Ethics, Reputation and CSR”. Participants increased and updated their knowledge of the Board of Studies NSW HSC Human Resources topic, as the event examined contemporary business issues, using actual business case studies. Participants were able to ask questions and had opportunities to network with other participants.

Some positive feedback about this event was received from participants:

National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework (September 2011)

The  National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework (September 2011) is a revised version of the National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework (the Framework) originally developed in 2005. It articulates a rationale for consumer and financial education in Australian schools; describes essential consumer and financial capabilities that will support lifelong learning; and provides guidance on how consumer and financial education may be structured to support a progression of learning from Foundation–Year 10. The  Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) led the revision of the National Framework in consultation with the Australian Government Financial Literacy Board, ASIC’s National Reference Group – Consumer and Financial Literacy, and other key consumer and education stakeholders.

Companion resources to this Framework, developed by ASIC, provide further guidance about integrating consumer and financial education into specific learning areas of the Australian Curriculum. These companion resources are available at: www.teaching.moneysmart.gov.au.

Newspaper article - "The case for economics" by Professor John Lodewijks

Professor John Lodewijks wrote an article for The Australian on 8 July 2013 titled "The case for economics".

In his introduction, Professor Lodewijks, writes:

"Why does a case for economics need to be made in the first place? Surely economics is the foundation discipline for studies in business, finance, accounting and related fields. Acknowledged as the queen of the social sciences, the scientific community recognises the value of the discipline with the award of Nobel Prizes."
