This was a participatory workshop to share ideas for the innovative use of current energy events in the teaching of energy and transport economics. There were no formal speakers, as participants were given the space, time and 'infrastructure' (i.e. activities and set-up) for networking and sharing. Two weeks before the event, registered participants were asked to answer some questions about their teaching interests, strengths and concerns e.g. approaches to teaching, difficult topics and teaching resources. The responses were used to shape the agenda for the day.

The impetus for this unusual format was that participants of more traditional seminars/workshops/conferences lament the lack of time for networking and sharing. This workshop aimed to remedy that by making those aspects the focus.
