Starting Point: Pedagogic Resources for Teaching and Learning Economics
Maier, Mark H.; McGoldrick, KimMarie; Simkins, Scott P.
Journal of Economic Education, v43 n2 p215-220 2012
This article describes Starting Point: Teaching and Learning Economics, a Web-based portal that makes innovative pedagogic resources and effective teaching practices easily accessible to economists. Starting Point introduces economists to teaching innovations through 16 online modules, each containing a general description of a specific pedagogic method, theory and evidence supporting effective use of the method, classroom implementation guides, and a library of economics-based examples that illustrate use of the teaching method. In addition, each module includes an online form allowing faculty to contribute their own classroom-based teaching examples to the examples library. (Contains 1 table and 7 notes.)
