Abstract: Bridging the gap between the microeconomic models that have come to comprise much of the content of undergraduate labour economics textbooks and the 'real world' has posed a challenge for many instructors of labour economics. This essay considers the advantages of pluralistic approaches to teaching labour economics and how such courses might be reconceptualised in light of the COVID-19 crisis.
Keywords: COVID-19; labour economics; pluralistic economics education.
