Description

In many disciplines, one of the main challenges of teaching abstract concepts, especially to non-majors, is helping students to make the connection to the real world. In this panel, we will discuss different strategies we use in our own Economics classes for making this connection. Some of these include provocative readings, experiments, simulations, and experiential learning. This session will serve as a forum for exchanging ideas on how to do this effectively from across disciplines.
