FREE Kittens for Economist Educators!
Ok, Ok, I know.
Never tell an economist that something is free...unless you want a lesson on the meanings of that word.
And Free Kittens is an oxymoron
And the entries below are not really kittens
And reviewing this list might take a little time
And we are asking you to PLEASE VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE
But then again, you just might find a golden nugget or two for your own classroom.
Below are the entries for the First Annual Economist Educators Best in Class Teaching Award.
In a few weeks we will be taking the top vote getters and a panel of Economist Educators will be picking a first, second and third place winner. Awards are cash prizes for both submitter and department as well as a trip to The 8th Annual Economics Teaching Conference to present.
Here are the entries, many of them have video---and here is the link to review them and vote.
