Symposium on Economics Teaching
JET’s Symposium on Economics Teaching is a different kind of conference put on by a different kind of journal. Through this effort, learning outcomes and teaching innovations take center stage. Each session is designed with a set of learning outcomes in mind so that you can immediately apply them to your classroom.
Please join us in-person August 5-7 in Omaha, Nebraska! Abstracts due by June 1.
Here’s what sets JET SET apart:
We care about teaching economics at every age, and we welcome great ideas from all economics educators! We are the only conference of its kind to actively foster networking amongst all passionate econ educators, whether they are professors or K-12 teachers.
Learning outcomes take center stage. Each session is designed with your students’ learning in mind and you’ll leave with practical information you can apply in your classroom immediately.
We teach you to fish! Ok, not really, but we want to give you the tools to publish your great teaching innovations and increase your impact! JET’s awesome editors will lead a results-oriented workshop for those who want to learn what it takes to get their classroom innovations ready for publication in JET. (Note- This workshop is optional and occurs at the end of the conference.)
We’ll have fun! Your registration covers admission to an exciting baseball game and other entertainment as we explore the oh-so-underrated Omaha.
Our conference is honestly, not for everyone, but it is perfect for every passionate economics educator out there! Please reach out to Ben Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
