In today’s video, “Using Media, Games, and Activities in the Classroom,”
Professor Dirk Mateer talks about using movie clips, games and other activities in the classroom to help students truly understand important concepts. Dr. Mateer is a Senior Lecturer and Co-Director of Undergraduate Studies in Economics at Penn State University.
For more ideas on making memorable lesson plans, visit Dr. Mateer’s website for resources like Music for Economics, Movies for Economics and Teaching Economics with YouTube. I also recommend this article by Matthew J. Holian in the Spring 2011 issue of The Journal of Private Enterprise, Using Drew Carey in the Classroom.
