Moryl, Rebecca L.
Journal of Economic Education, v47 n1 p64-70 2016
In this article, the author describes a group project to create student-generated podcasts on economics topics. This project provides an innovative opportunity for students to demonstrate proficiency in skills required for the undergraduate economics major and valued in the professional marketplace. Results of a student self-assessment survey on the project reflect findings in the literature that collaborative assignments utilizing technology tools can provide opportunities for students to practice their economic proficiencies, for instructors to assess even the higher-level proficiencies, and for students to enjoy the learning process.
