October 6, 2018 - Colorado Springs
Education has made available a website housing many lessons on behavioral economics. An experienced teacher in this class will demonstrate lessons featured on the website. Our professor will frame the discussion on behavioral economics and help us understand the rise of this field of study along with its major tenets. This class should be a nice fit for any teacher of economics – the behavioral dimension can really liven up a classroom. It’s fun! The topic also blends beautifully with psychology, business/marketing courses and IB’s Theory of Knowledge.
