WHAT'S NEW
================

Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) Builder

Would you like to take part in an exciting teaching and learning project by trialling a new resource with your students?
‘Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) Builder’ is an electronic web-based interactive teaching and learning resource, which can be used by students to aid in their understanding of cost benefit analysis, including: how it works, how to construct a cost benefit analysis, applying values to costs and benefits, how to perform discounting, and the limitations of CBA. The main objectives of the project are to:

*Create a free to use web-based resource for teaching and learning of CBA.
*Create an interactive resource which provides (i) an in-depth online CBA textbook; (ii) a range of flash examples; (iii) the ability to create your own simple and advanced CBA; (iv) downloadable exercises and worksheets, and; (v) links to useful texts, academic journal papers, and websites.
*Create a resource which can be used in formative and summative assessment.
*Improve student engagement with CBA through new methods of teaching and learning.
*Improve student employability through improved knowledge of a common method of project appraisal used in both the public and private sector.

Expenses will be offered for the organisation and running of a trial session with students within your University. If you would be interested in trialling the CBA Builder resource in the Autumn term 2010, please contact Dr Dan Wheatley, Senior Lecturer in Economics, Nottingham Trent University, at [log in to unmask]
