Submission Guidelines for the 18th Annual Economics Teaching Conference
All proposals for sessions are reviewed by the Board of the National Economics Teaching Association (NETA)—not Cengage.
NETA invites proposals that demonstrate innovative pedagogy, new technology or other ways to improve Economics education at the undergraduate and high school (AP) level. The focus of this conference is on “doing,” rather than “reporting.” A great way to get an idea of what we’re looking for is to examine the program from previous conferences. Find recorded sessions from last year's conference here.
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 how it will help attendees become more effective educators. After two years of meeting virtually, we return to convening our NETA community in-person on October 27-28, 2022, in Atlanta, GA.
Some ideas include:
- Equity, diversity and inclusion in Economics education
- Preventing cheating in the online classroom
- Using media in the classroom (news, social media, etc.)
- New approaches to teaching a particular Economics concept
- Innovative student assignments
- Methods of assessment (e.g., exams that allow students to use notes, calculators or the Web)
- Preparing Economics classes for a variety of delivery options in the face of uncertainty
- Teaching Economics using popular culture or literature
- Classroom games, simulations and experiments
- Conducting class discussions, either face-to-face or online
- Service learning in Economics
- Teaching students to do research
- Collaborative learning
- Remote/hybrid teaching and learning

- A description of 250 words explaining the presentation, including ways in which conference participants will benefit from attending the session
