Tea for Teaching

Informal discussions of effective practices in teaching and learning.

Evidence-based teaching in large classes.

Posted on December 6th, 2017

Effective teaching requires good classroom management skills, engaging public speaking skills, and the use of evidence-based teaching strategies. All of this can be particularly daunting while teaching large-enrollment classes. In this episode, Bill Goffe, describes how his instructional approaches in large economic classes have evolved over time, in response to findings from cognitive science and educational research.

Bill Goffe is a Senior Lecturer in Economics at Penn State and a former colleague at the State University of New York at Oswego.  Bill is very well known in the profession for his Resources for Economists on the Internet, which was one of the very first internet guides available for economists (and is now hosted and sponsored by the American Economic Association). He is the Secretary-Treasurer for the Society of Computational Economics , an Associate Editor for Computational Economics and the online section of the Journal of Economic Education. He's also an editorial board member for Netnomics.
