Good Thing There is No Fire Marshall on Line! Report from the Virtual Seminar Series

As you probably know by now, we have been running free (however you economists interpret that) Economist Educators Online Virtual Teaching Seminars each Friday in March.

For our first one, 'No More Death By Powerpoint!' last week with Ron Cronovich we had over 130 instructors register. If the internet had a Fire Marshall, we would have been shut down for overcrowding! We are currently editing that presentation and will be posting it shortly.

Today we had a big crowd and a great seminar featuring Jim Gwartney from Florida State University presenting 'Is Your Course Truly Balanced? Market Failures and Government Failures'.

If you did not get a chance to attend, don't dispair! Here is the recording.

Next Friday, John Taylor from Stanford University will be presenting 'Teaching Through a Financial Crisis' at Noon Eastern, 9 a.m. Pacific. You can register RIGHT HERE

I hope to see you next week. Virtually of course. Reminds me.....I need to find a bigger virtual room!
