Handbook on Teaching and Learning Economics
Two of our friends, Gail Hoyt and KimMarie McGoldrick, who have presented at our yearly teaching conference have recently published a resource that we think should be in the library of any serious instructor of economics.
From the publisher's website:
The International Handbook on Teaching and Learning Economics provides a comprehensive resource for instructors and researchers in economics, both new and experienced. This wide-ranging collection is designed to enhance student learning by helping economic educators learn more about course content, pedagogic techniques, and the scholarship of the teaching enterprise.
'In delightfully readable short chapters by leaders in the sub-fields who are also committed teachers, this encyclopedia of how and what in teaching economics covers everything. There is nothing else like it, and it should be required reading for anyone starting a teaching career – and for anyone who has been teaching for fewer than 50 years!’
