Appealing to Good Students in Introductory Economics
The authors examine the effectiveness of different teaching techniques using a unique data set that allows them to match student and instructor characteristics to assess their impact on students' interest in economics. They find that devoting less class time to lecture and more to discussion is effective for all types of students. However, the magnitude of the effects of these two techniques varies considerably by type of student, as does the impact of several other teaching techniques. They conclude that using a variety of teaching techniques is the most successful strategy to appeal to the broad range of learning styles adopted by "good" students.
