Econ in the Summer
By Cindy Ivanac-Lillig
There are a few days of school left and faculty and students around the country are breathing a sigh of relief. However, most economics teachers/professors that I know don't kick up their heels and sip colorful drinks for two months. Many of them use the time to study both current events and new ways to bring their lessons to life.
I am teaching at a couple of workshops this summer and I am always impressed with the dedication of these educators. Yes, many of these programs offer graduate credits, but I think most folks are taking part for the benefit of their classroom and not their resume.
At the end of the month I will be part of a week-long Indiana University/Purdue University (IUPUI) workshop in Indianapolis teaching about the Fed and Monetary Policy. If you happen to be teacher and are interested, please check your local Council of Economic Education website (most states have their own) and see if there is something similar offered. If you happen to be a teacher from Indiana, here is a complete list of the IUPUI Schedule of Workshops.
I am also wondering if there are any interactive on-line/desktop courses for economics teachers that anyone knows about. Please share as I would love to check it out.
It's good to be back. Please share your thoughts and ideas below...
