Want to present at the 15th Annual Economics Teaching Conference?

Here's what you need to know:

All teaching sessions are vetted for acceptance by the Economist Educators of the National Economics Teaching Association—not Cengage.

NETA invites proposals that demonstrate innovative pedagogy, new technology or other ways to improve economic education at the undergraduate and high school (AP) level. The focus of this conference is on “doing,” rather than “reporting.” Take a look at the program from a previous conference to gather ideas on what types of presentations are selected for the conference.

Conference sessions last one hour, and presenters will have the entire session. Proposals should be detailed so it’s clear how that time will be used. They should make it clear what the goals of the session will be, and how it will help attendees become more effective educators.

Some ideas include:

  • Flipping the classroom
  • Using media in the classroom
  • New approaches to teaching a particular economic concept
  • Innovative student assignments
  • Methods of assessment
  • Distance learning
  • Teaching Economics using popular culture or literature
  • Classroom games, simulations and experiments
  • Conducting economic discussions
  • Service learning in Economics
  • Teaching students to do economic research
  • Collaborative learning
  • Economics and philosophy
  • Teaching Economics to honors students

Submissions must include:

  •  A description of about 250 words explaining the presentation, including ways in which conference participants will benefit from attending the session
  • Contact information for all presenters
  • Information on audio/visual needs (projector, internet, audio, etc.)*
  • A short, 2 - 3 sentence description of the session for the program

Early submission is encouraged since proposals are accepted on a rolling basis, and only 25 sessions will be scheduled.

*If your submission is accepted, you are committing to register for and attend the conference. Don’t forget to bring a laptop for your session!
