2019 Economics Teaching Conference

2019 Economics Teaching Conference



What is the Economics Teaching Conference?

The 15th Annual Economic Teaching Conference, sponsored by the National Economics Teaching Association and Cengage, is an academic teaching conference for instructors of undergraduate-level Economics.

Know the fast facts:

  • All conference teaching sessions are peer-reviewed for presentation solely by the Economist Educators of NETA.
  • As a teaching conference, acceptance of proposals is focused on teaching sessions that will improve engagement, effectiveness and outcomes in your Economics course.
  • We invite proposals that demonstrate innovative pedagogy, new technology or other ways to improve economic education at the undergraduate level.
  • The focus of this conference is on “doing,” rather than “reporting.”
  • This year, to give you a more focused experience, the conference will begin in the late afternoon Thursday and run through Friday.

The most creative Economist Educators are expected at this year’s event—will you be one of them?

Register now and join your peers for collaborative teaching sessions, presentations by our Best in Class Teaching Award winners and a dinner keynote from author Greg Mankiw.

Please note that The Economics Teaching Conference will have a more focused time frame this year. The reception with dinner and keynote will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 24 (registration beforehand) and the conference will end at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, October 25.
