The morning session will begin with a series of content drive lectures and discussions. Teachers will gain a solid foundation in microeconomics by investigating the basics of cost-benefit analysis and the use of productive resources, and the role they play in our everyday lives, and its significance in shaping policies and business decisions. In the second portion of this session, participants will dive into the fundamentals of supply and demand, exploring the forces that drive them and the ways in which they interact to determine market equilibrium, prices, and quantities.
