  • Div.E.Q. Live at the Ninth Annual Economics Teaching Conference, Austin, TX, October 25, 2013: "Diversifying Economic Quality: A Wiki for Innovative and Inclusive Teaching Techniques"
    • Diversifying Economic Quality (Div.E.Q.) is a new online resource where economists can find and share information on effective teaching practices in economics, focusing particularly on practices that encourage women, students of color, and members of other underrepresented groups to continue study in our discipline. The American Economic Association's Committee on the Status of Minority Groups in the Economics Profession supports this project as part of its commitment to advancing diversity in the profession. This session introduces attendees to the structure and content of Div.E.Q., demonstrates some of the teaching strategies it offers, and gives you the chance to contribute to this dynamic resource.

  • “Research Statement by Emma von Essen (October 2012)”:
    • "Questions raised in the classroom often provide a view of human behavior which differs from the standard economic view. A recently created webpage “Diversifying Economic Quality: A Wiki for Instructors and Departments” is an excellent initiative, something I intend to use to improve my teaching practices."
