Feedback form is now closed.


The writings of early economist are often dreaded by students and seem outdated. A professor, a librarian and students have teamed up to create collaborative work.

In this workshop we will present the work we have been doing in the last 2 years to create a collaborative document that ties up concepts and ideas from History of Economic Thought with today’s world. Through fun activities, students learn about the life, writings and contributions to the field of economics by different economists.

Some examples of activities:
  • Creating of a common document using an authoring platform for educational material.
  • Creation of renewable assignments
  • Creation of a timeline so students can connect historical events with the live of economists and their policies.
  • Use of videos and podcasts to learn
  • We will provide share the assignments we shave created, provide alternative applications of the project, suggest modifications for other courses, and provide a variety of methods instructors could use to tailor the assignment according to the course needs (number of students, access to technology, etc.)

Objectives of the Session –
  • Evidence based ideas and best practices to create collaborative work where students had agency and were empowered by the experience
  • Present engagement techniques to increase student preparation for class and class interaction
  • Model use of technology to keep participants engaged

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Use evidence based ideas and best practices to create collaborative work where students had agency and were empowered by the experience
  • Include different engagement techniques to increase student preparation for class and class interaction
  • Include technology to keep participants engaged
