I can remember being a freshman in college and thinking about ways my economics courses could be taught differently, and in my opinion in a more engaging and effective manor. That was twelve years ago and I still have a strong interest in designing courses and planning out learning opportunities for students.
I believe strongly in the importance of an integrated learning experience. For me, learning has everything to do with connections and the ability to contextualize and apply knowledge (however abstract). While I have yet to own a course myself, I designed a syllabus for a hypothetical intermediate micro economics course that I hope to have the opportunity to use.
In my classroom teaching plans, I seek to get students engaged with the material and involved in the process of education and (re)discovery.
