The authors adapted a lab-in-the-field experiment emulating the dynamic extraction of a fishery to create a Web-based classroom experiment. The game includes a multi-player version analogous to an open-access problem and a single-player version analogous to the social planner problem. This game is helpful in introductory microeconomics courses to…

Allgood, Sam; McGoldrick, KimMarie – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
Past survey evidence shows little change in how economists teach, but the pandemic forced change upon faculty. This survey investigates what that change looked like, whether faculty feel that the changes were for the better or worse for themselves and their students, and what changes faculty will continue post-pandemic.

Incorporating writing into an economics course is a beneficial goal of economic educators. The potential benefits of using writing to enhance learning among economics students have been emphasized in the literature. Writing to Learn (WTL) is an act of using writing activities to help students think through key concepts presented in a course. The…

Filson, Darren – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
The COVID-19 pandemic made it necessary for instructors to innovate, and some of the innovations will persist and be refined post-pandemic. An economics elective at Claremont McKenna College provides examples. Innovations likely to persist include replacing in-class exams with context-rich assignments and conducting a set of student presentations…

Coleff, Joaquín; Rubbini, Camilo – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
The authors of this article propose a simple exercise of monopoly pricing to illustrate complex theoretical results on the welfare effects of group pricing. By exposing students to this exercise, they aim to bridge a gap between the standard textbook analysis of group pricing and more general results in the literature and clarify some students'…

Jacobson, Sarah – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
The economic theory of natural resource exploitation predicts that scarcity crises will not arise because forward-looking resource owners will smooth their extraction over time to maximize their profits. The model providing this result can seem opaque and technical to students, but its intuition can be learned from experience. The author shares a…

Chaudhury, Parama – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
In this article, the author describes the use of a storytelling approach in a learning design with significant asynchronous elements. This approach was introduced in an upper-level international trade course with close to 200 students in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As most live "lectures" took place online and were subject to…

Castro Santa, Juana – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
A novel game that captures the central dimensions of climate change mitigation as a social dilemma is presented. Students play the role of countries sharing a global atmosphere. In each round, carbon emissions are released and accumulated in the atmosphere, making climate change consequences more severe and difficult to mitigate over time. Without…

Haugen, Atle; Juranek, Steffen – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
The authors present two classroom experiments on technology licensing. The first classroom experiment introduces the concept of royalty stacking. Students learn that noncooperative pricing of royalties for complementary intellectual property rights leads to a double-marginalization effect. Cooperation solves the problem and is welfare-improving.…

Freitas, Kripa – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
Evidence suggests that active engagement with material as it is being taught improves learning. In-class multiple choice questions are a common way to introduce active learning. Low-stakes writing is another. The author of this article provides evidence that using a content-based low-stakes writing prompt with immediate group feedback during the…

Cameron, Michael P. – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
Media bias is an important and underexplored feature of the economics of information. In this article, the author outlines two models that can be used to illustrate media bias in a policy-oriented undergraduate economics or public policy course. The models rely on relatively simple and intuitive underlying assumptions and draw on related empirical…

Staveley-O'Carroll, James; Gai, Yunwei – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
The authors describe an asymmetric information demonstration that assigns students different probabilities of incurring healthcare expenses. In each round, students choose whether to purchase insurance; then, the instructor randomly determines who gets "sick." After computing insurer profits, students help determine a new insurance price…

Ong, EeCheng; Wong, Timothy – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
The authors incorporate experiential learning into three courses: Urban Economics, Labor Economics, and the Economics of Inequality. Students visit neighborhoods that, while geographically proximate, remain outside most students' day-to-day experiences, such as a legal red-light district that is also home to low-wage immigrant workers and a public…
