Individual papers on topics related to the teaching of economics at the college level (undergraduate and graduate) and research on teaching and learning economics at any level (including pre-college) will be considered for inclusion in paper sessions. To have an individual paper considered, you will submit an abstract of no more than 300 words. For papers involving economic education research, preference will be given to abstracts which clearly identify the research as complete or at advanced stages.
Complete sessions on topics related to the teaching of economics at the college level (undergraduate and graduate) and research on teaching and learning economics at any level (including pre-college) will be considered. Papers in the session should be clearly connected by a common theme and that theme should be evident from the session title. A complete session should consist of three or four papers, a discussant for each paper, and a session chair. Please try to avoid drawing all discussants from the other authors in the same session. An abstract of no more than 300 words is required for each paper.
Panel topics should cover current topics of interest to those teaching or doing research in economic education. Panelists should not present a current research paper, but instead should have prepared remarks. The organizer may choose the precise format, including the number of panelists and whether or not the session has discussants. However, the session should have a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 panelists. The organization of the session must allow for questions and comments from the audience. Those proposing a panel discussion should write a short abstract of no more than 300 words articulating why the topic is of interest. The submission should also include an abstract of no more than 300 words from each panelist summarizing their contribution to the discussion. You must also submit a two-page summary vita for each panelist which should include any relevant experience they may have.
Workshop topics should relate to teaching economics at the college-level (undergraduate or graduate) or on conducting research in economic education. Please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words justifying and describing the workshop you plan to organize. You must also submit a two-page summary vita for each workshop leader which should include any relevant experience they may have.
