FTE is offering a series of virtual workshops for high school teachers on active learning in the virtual economics classroom. In these sessions, FTE instructors will feature the tools and pedagogy used in the Economics for Leaders virtual programs this summer. Our Active Learning in the Virtual Classroom Workshop Series will take place this fall, highlighting cornerstone FTE activities and how to run them in a virtual environment.
Like most educational institutions across the country, FTE converted all high school student programs online. With over 620 high school students enrolled in the virtual Economics for Leaders program this summer, FTE staff developed significant experience delivering economics content in a virtual environment and we want to share this knowledge with educators across the nation.
