Teaching Economics in the 21st Century
AbstractThe desire to reverse a downward trend in the number of undergraduates majoring in economics is an impetus to advance the scholarship of teaching economics as we enter the 21st century. This article offers suggestions for changing the concepts taught and the applications used in college and university economics courses within the United States. It provides practical methods to improve the way economics is taught. The assessment of students and the evaluation of pedagogical practices are also addressed.
