These lectures will cover the concepts and techniques of effective field theory. I will try to introduce several of the useful techniques which do not usually get covered in the standard QFT courses and books. We will start with the effective field theory aspects of QED, and end with the treatment of general relativity as a quantum field theory using effective field theory techniques.
