Workshop: Energize your Economics Course

Econ is fun!

Join Dirk Mateer and Charity-Joy Acchiardo for an enjoyable day of economics. Dirk and Charity-Joy use pop culture to draw students into learning economics. They use clips from popular television shows and movies to demonstrate economic concepts and engage students in interactive activities so they can experience economics firsthand. They use bargaining games to demonstrate asymmetric information, karaoke to visualize the law of supply, tennis balls to represent diminishing returns, and much more! This is your chance to experience these lessons first hand and get a sneak peek into their media library and latest projects.
