Professor Asad Zaman gave a talk titled “Launching a Revolution in Teaching Economics” on February 8,2019. Professor Zaman currently holds the Vice Chancellor position at the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics. He has held several positions in distinguished universities across the United States, Turkey and Pakistan, and made numerous remarkable contributions in the field of Economics. In this talk, he provided his perspective on Eurocentric approach to teaching, the problems associated with it, and how to tackle these problems along with the alternative approaches. We have greatly benefited from Professor Zaman’s alternative approaches to teaching methods. We would like to thank Professor Zaman for this important talk and hope to host him again at our university in the coming years.
