A Conference for Economics Instructors

If you (like me) teach introductory economics, or are expecting to do so soon, you might be interested in attending this economics conference. It is a one-day meeting I am running at Harvard on Friday, May 8, with the generous support of my publisher (Southwestern, a part of Cengage Learning).
The conference will include some sessions on economics pedagogy from star teachers. It will also include some sessions on recent developments in the economy, including talks from Phill Swagel (who until recently was Assistant Secretary of Treasury for Economic Policy) and Jeff Fuhrer (Executive Vice President and Director of Research of the Boston Federal Reserve). After lunch, participants will have the option to tour Harvard, and the day will end with a party at my home.
