While the content of the typical undergraduate economics course has remained stable in recent decades, computers have become more powerful, easier to use, and as common as pencil and paper. In spite of these developments, teaching methods remain virtually unchanged, with chalk-and-talk the dominant mode of delivery. This 3-day workshop will demonstrate how to utilize computer-based, active learning techniques to teach economics and econometrics. By providing real, concrete examples with clear visual feedback, students learn much more and acquire sophisticated computer skills.
