    Best in Class Award - 2016

    It's time to enter our Best in Class Award contest for 2016!

    This award highlights and rewards creative and engaging teaching techniques. Show us your teaching technique in action and you could win a chance to present to your colleagues at the 12th Annual Economics Teaching Conference in Tampa, FL! 


    Between now and Friday, September 30, 2016, submit the following two items through our new judging site:

    1. A Word document describing your teaching technique and how it has worked for you.

    2. The URL of a 5-to-8-minute video, posted to YouTube, which describes your technique, and, if possible, shows it in action.

    Use these guidelines to help complete your entry: 

    • Keep your document relatively brief: 500 to 1,000 words should suffice.
    • Outline your teaching technique.

    When you first log in you will need to register first. So instead of providing your email address and password, you will want to click the "Register" link. Just follow the instructions and use this information to log in afterwards.
