Starting Point project

Many readers of this blog are familiar with the AEA's Teaching Innovations Program (TIP). Although the original grant for that program is coming to a close, many of the folks who brought us TIP are hoping to continue their work. Part of that will be in the form of an on-line site, known as Starting Point, designed to provide wider access to information about innovative pedagogies in economics. One of the evaluators for the project recently sent a message to the tch-econ mailing list, asking for participants in a survey about what people are currently doing in their undergraduate econ classrooms, and I offered to pass on the link to readers here:
...I am interested in learning about how economists become aware of alternative teaching methods and their experience with them. Would you please invest 5 minutes of your time to answer a brief survey? The results will be useful for those working on the Starting Point project... Just click on the URL below to access the survey. Feel free to disseminate the link to your local colleagues or others who teach college-level economics.
I can attest that the survey really should only take five minutes. Please go increase their sample size!

  1. The survey isn't perfect (in some questions response categories overlap), and there's no place to make additional comments. But I can also attest that you can complete it quickly, and that it will be, on balance, useful. So click on over and add your $2 trillion worth.
