This chapter explores student demand for alternative and heterodox approaches to economic theory and the need for innovative methods of teaching economics which departs from neoclassical and orthodox views. The analysis builds upon the contributions delivered by students who participated in the 2016 Conference Teaching Economics in the 21st Century at the University of Dundee. All students call attention to the need for a change in the economics curricula to include innovative and heterodox ideas which go beyond the traditional neoclassical approaches.
