Effective teaching in the classroom requires that professors know their material, keep up-to-date on changes in the field, and use innovative and engaging teaching methods. This can be daunting—it’s much easier to maintain the status quo. This year’s conference will take on both sides of effective instruction: solid content and engaging pedagogy.

Conference Speakers and Features
  • Carlos Garriga, a St. Louis Fed vice president and economist, will discuss "Monetary Policy: Textbook vs. Reality."
  • Kevin Kliesen, a St. Louis Fed business economist and research officer, will provide an economic outlook.
  • Timothy Taylor, managing editor of the Journal of Economic Perspectives, will discuss "The Secular Stagnation Hypothesis and Challenges for Pedagogy."
  • Concurrent sessions will feature presentations from college professors on teaching and learning economics.
  • St. Louis Fed staff will provide an update on the Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED®) database.
  • St. Louis Fed internship opportunities for your students will be discussed.
