Abstract

The literature on active learning and engaging pedagogy has grown since the turn of the century when William Becker challenged the economics education community to be “sexier” in order to attract more majors. While the effectiveness of teaching methods has been understudied, the available resources to an interested educator has grown substantially. We survey the literature of active teaching techniques and resources as well as provide sources for aspiring educators wishing to enhance the relevance of their coursework.
