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.
