For those university instructors who were not able to participate in the AEA's Teaching Innovations Program, you will be happy to know that there is going to be a book that discusses how each of the modules worked and that provides lots of examples from individuals who did go through the program. There was a TIP Conference January 5-6, after the ASSA meetings in Atlanta, where all the contributors to the book presented the work that is going into their chapters (I'm one of the contributors for the chapter on large enrollment courses) and I have to say that it was the most invigorating 24 hours that I've spent at a conference in a long time. There were a couple of presentations that particularly inspired me and I'll be writing about them in more detail in future posts. Work is also being done on "TIP 2.0" which, from what I understand, will make the online modules available so people can work through them on their own. I'm not sure when that will be up and running but will keep you posted.
