The Art of Economic Argument

Economics Teaching Workshop

Your Invited

Mark your calendars for Thursday, January 14, 2016, as we host our next Economics Curriculum Night which will be a workshop titled "The Art of Economic Argument" inspired by Thomas Mayer's book "Invitation to Economics - Understanding Argument and Policy". Want to help your students analyze and evaluate economic arguments so that they can become better readers and debaters? Then register for this workshop and share your ideas with your colleagues and learn from others as well. This workshop is going to be different. Unlike the last two workshops we are going to go back to our previous format of having professors give individual presentations with the theme of teaching the art of economic argument. If you are interested in presenting please send a title of your presentation along with a brief abstract (100 words or less) and submit it to Richard Gosselin at Approved presentations will be made on a rolling basis. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, January 7, 2016. Whether you plan to present or not please register today by clicking on the green RSVP button below! Also, please know that we will present certificates of completion for professional development if you need this for your annual evaluation with your college or department. As an added incentive to register early the first 20 who register will be guaranteed a copy of the book. Copies will be made available after January 4th at the Economics Department of Houston Community College at the Central campus in Room A229. The physical address is 3214 Austin St., Houston, Texas 77004.

We look forward to seeing your proposals!
