Integrating guest speakers into a module on Alternative Investments

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


This case study refers to a UG third-year students’ optional module on The Economics of Alternative Investments. This module introduces different types of alternative assets to the students, providing key macroeconomic and financial theoretical concepts to be applied and learnt through continuous empirical training. The Covid-19 pandemic allowed me to add a third “arrow” to the pedagogy of this module: the invitation of several guest speakers during live teaching events. This choice had three main goals: increasing learning outcomes, enhancing employability skills, and fostering engagement.
