Teaching Tools: Teaching Methods in Undergraduate Economics

Abstract

Lectures have long been the dominant pedagogical approach in undergraduate economics courses but they are certainly no longer the exclusive approach. Much of the recent soul-searching in the discipline, dealing with the desirable characteristics of economics programs and their graduates, has largely ignored the issue of promoting the use of innovative and more active forms of teaching and learning. The authors review a considerable literature on new teaching approaches, developed by economists over the past twenty-five years, and argue that this should also be a part of the current debate about curriculum and training reforms for the profession.
