The AEA Committee on Economic Education (AEA-CEE) has begun producing a biannual newsletter, EconEdNews, that includes timely information about conferences and events sponsored by the AEA-CEE, highlights resources for educators, and more. For the Spring 2023 issue and to subscribe to receive future issues, visit https://www.aeaweb.org/about-aea/committees/economic-education/econednews/

The AEA-CEE supports the development and distribution of materials intended to enhance the relevance of and interest in economics to all students. The committee seeks resources designed with this goal in mind, such as: expanded topics in introductory economics, videos and podcasts of diverse economists explaining what economists do, ideas for making significant revisions to introductory courses, in-depth resources that can be used in more advanced classes, and ideas for elective courses to add to curriculum. Submissions can come in the form of documents or hyperlinks. To explore existing materials or to submit resources, visit https://www.aeaweb.org/about-aea/committees/economic-education/resources/curriculum.
