What are you expected to know? Under the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (the TEQSA Act), TEQSA is charged with evaluating the performance of higher education providers against a series of standards, including Learning Standards. These are the minimum outcomes that graduates are expected to attain to receive an economics degree. Over 2012-13, a team of academic economists, led by Professor Ross Guest and guided by an expert advisory board from the public, private and academic sectors, developed a series of standards for economics degrees in Australia, from incentives to national accounting aggregates; from inflation to market failures; which will influence how people study economics at a tertiary level in the future. Professor Guest will be explaining these new academic standards and how they will affect the study of economics in Australia.
