No More Death By Powerpoint!

Ron Cronovich and Greg Mankiw
A week or so ago, Ron Cronovich from Carthage College presented another in our Economist Educators Online Virtual Teaching Seminars, No More 'Death by Powerpoint': True Engagement in the Classroom. You can now see a recording of the seminar  Here  (first column about half way down)

Ron has been working on creating strategies for classroom engagement for some time. While he was at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, he was named the outstanding teacher in the school of business 3 times. He created the highly acclaimed premium set of power points for the Mankiw principles text which take the idea of traditional power points to a whole new level of interactivity and student engagement.
