19th Annual Economics Teaching Conference

After a successful in-person conference last year, we're thrilled to host the National Economics Teaching Association (NETA) community again from November 2-3, 2023 in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

This year, NETA* is looking for proposals based on the conference theme, "Innovate. Educate. Elevate." that demonstrate innovative pedagogy, new technology or other ways to improve Economic education at the undergraduate and high school (AP) level. 

Conference sessions last 45 minutes, and presenters will have the entire session. Proposals should make it clear how the time will be used, what the goals of the session will be and what attendees would take away. 

*All proposals for sessions are reviewed and decided on solely by the Board of the National Economics Teaching Association (NETA).
