- Workshop: Teaching Economics with Excel
- DePauw University, Greencastle, Indiana
- While the content of the typical undergraduate Intermediate Microeconomics course has remained stable in recent decades, computers have become more powerful, easier to use, and as common as pencil and paper. In spite of these developments, teaching methods remain virtually unchanged, with chalk and talk the dominant mode of delivery. This workshop will demonstrate how to utilize computer-based, active learning techniques to teach economics, focusing especially on Intermediate Micro. By providing real, concrete examples with clear visual feedback, students learn much more economics and acquire sophisticated computer skills.
