Economic Examples

The following examples were designed explicitly for economics courses. However, one should not narrow their focus on this limited set of examples since much can be learned about how to develop and incorporate cooperative learning examples by reviewing exercises developed for other disciplines. A number of non economics cooperative learning exercises can be found in this module.

Contribute to this library of Cooperative Learning examples! When you've created a good Cooperative Learning exercise, please consider submitting your activity. All submissions are peer reviewed before posting.
