Abstract: 
This paper provides a discussion of a recently introduced final-year econometrics module designed to capture methodological debates, advances in technology and increased data availability via a structure emphasising the practical nature of econometrics. The justification for the provision of such a module is presented clearly, with further support for its proposal from the broader educational literature provided also. Evaluation of the module shows its success in terms of student satisfaction, student learning and progress and staff satisfaction. Consequently, it is suggested that colleagues should be encouraged to develop similar modules emphasising the relevance of the material they cover in a topical manner exploiting all available technological resources as appropriate.
