Student disengagement: It’s always been an academic’s worst nightmare, but with snap lockdowns and COVID-19 continuing to disrupt the academic year, it’s an issue running rampant.
Wiley is here to help. Join Dirk Mateer (University of Texas), co-author of Principles of Economics COVID-19 Update Edition, and Wayne Geerling (Monash University), for a virtual workshop on using active learning to improve student engagement.
In this interactive workshop, Dirk and Wayne will share techniques and active learning exercises they use in their classroom to make economics relatable and engaging.
