Darshak Patel

Darshak Patel is a Senior Lecturer of Economics and the Director of Undergraduate Studies at The University of Kentucky Gatton College of Business and Economics. Darshak teaching and research interests focus on Economics of Education, Economics of Innovations and Innovative Teaching Methods. His research has been published in the Journal of Economic Education, Southern Economic Journal, and Research Policy. His goal as an educator is to increase this level of engagement by developing lectures and assignments that focus on generating a high level of energy, interest, and motivation in students towards the subject of economics.

Darshak helps students fulfill their highest potential by making the classroom a sound-learning environment where students develop critical thinking skills by actively participating in discussions and projects that challenge them to engage critically with the subject matter. He promotes active learning through use of different software, popular media such as EPSN30for30 and Shark Tank, and connecting economics with students over social media. Darshak is a recipient of the Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching at the College of Business and Global Affairs.

"MindTap has been an exceptional complementary tool to my lectures. It engages students outside the classroom, motivates text readings and provides resources to succeed in class."
