Este artículo busca proponer alternativas de enseñanza para un curso de Introducción a la Economía, utilizando la herramienta de la Economía Experimental. De este modo, se introducen dos juegos Holt (1996) y Goeree and Holt (1999) en tres grupos distintos, los cuales se centran en los conceptos de mercado, leyes de oferta y demanda, producción agregada, empleo y precios. Estos juegos fueron aplicados a los estudiantes del curso de Introducción a la Economía de los programas de Administración de Negocios, Contaduría y Negocios Internacionales de la Universidad EAFIT en el semestre I de 2011. Aunque los resultados son preliminares, sugieren un efecto positivo en la comprensión de los conceptos y la aproximación y recordación de los estudiantes de la lógica del pensamiento económico.
