Using Open Educational Resources to Help Students Understand the Sub-Prime Lending Crisis
McDowell, Evelyn A.
American Journal of Business Education, v3 n11 p85-92 2010
In this paper, I describe an assignment designed to give students an intermediate level of understanding of the causes of the crisis using online educational resources widely available on the internet. I implemented the assignment in an undergraduate intermediate accounting course. Feedback from students indicate the assignment enhanced their learning of basic financial literacy concepts, encouraged them to make links between significant economic events and accounting concepts, and increased their confidence in their ability to learn difficult concepts on their own.
