One Day Seminars


The FTE One Day seminars are designed as content and activity-rich professional development programs, geared toward a variety of teachers and grade levels.  They may be scheduled during the week or on Saturdays.

Each seminar qualifies for one graduate hour credit in economics from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.  Registration information, as well as the assignment for the graduate credit, is provided onsite at each program.

FTE One Day topics are:

  • Fundamentals of Environmental Economics – for upper elementary through high school teachers who teach science and social science.  No prior economics background required.
  • Rejuvenating Your Economics Classroom – for new and experienced teachers of economics or those who want to infuse economic concepts into their classes.  Uses simulations/case studies.
  • Understanding Global Economic Issues – for teachers incorporating global economic concepts into their classes.  Focus is on current issues.  Highly interactive.

The One Day seminars may be offered in partnership with State Councils/Centers for Economic Education, as well as individual school districts.  (Please see the co-sponsor link at the right for details.)
