Description/Summary

Laurence Miners and Kathryn Nantz are contributing authors, "Significant Learning in the Economics Classroom”, pp. 25-33.

Book description: Higher education today is being called upon to deliver a new and more powerful kind of education, one that prepares students to be more engaged citizens, better equipped to solve complex problems at work and better prepared to lead meaningful lives individually. To respond to this call, teachers in colleges and universities need to design more powerful kinds of learning into their courses. This issue contains multiple stories of how college-level teachers have used these ideas in a variety of teaching situations, from the sciences to the humanities.
