CTREE St. Louis Fed Pre-Conference Event: FRED and Econ Ed at the St. Louis Fed
Tuesday, May 28, 2019; 12:30– 6:30 p.m.

The academic community is long familiar with the St. Louis Fed’s commitment to economic education—through their free educational resources such as FRED®, FREDcast™ and EconLowdown®, as well as their many publications such as Review and Page One Economics®. This event will bring together a variety of Federal Reserve speakers and teaching professors on strategies for improving economic instruction, with sessions covering Monetary policy in the 21st century, making the most of FRED and FREDcast in the classroom, and using Excel to teach economics.  Special sessions on women in economics and programming to support community college faculty will also be offered.

A complimentary lunch will be served, and a reception will follow the day’s events. Seating is limited and registration is required by May 22. To register, please visit https://www.stlouisfed.org/events/2019/05/ee-ctree0519. For more information, contact Scott Wolla at scott.a.wolla@stls.frb.org.
