Exploring new ways to support learning.
Since high school I have been fascinated by economics, and how it helps to understand the world in which we live and gives us the tools to act. As a professor, my aim has been to share this passion with my students to make them better business leaders and better citizens.
However, economics is tough and, all too often, not a favorite subject. I just have to look at the expression of people when I tell them that I teach economics. So I had to delve into the theory of learning, best practices in adult education, and ed tech tools to create courses that engage my students and facilitate their use of economic tools throughout their life.
It is great to hear my students show their appreciation for their new understanding. And I enjoy sharing with my colleagues best practices in course design to facilitate our students' learning.
