What Do Online Learning And Mardi Gras Have In Common? Let Econgirl Show You…

October 27th, 2011 · 8 Comments

I am good at using conferences as excuses to go to fun locations. Case in point: the 7th annual Economics Teaching Conference, hosted by the Gulf Coast Economics Association and Cengage Learning, is being held today and tomorrow in New Orleans, so obviously I needed to give a talk at this shindig. And needed to do so while wearing Mardi Gras beads, as was decided by some random guy outside the hotel at 8:30am:

At a book signing later, John Taylor said that he liked my talk, so I gave him some beads. That’s the appropriate response, right?

Anyway, my talk was on research surrounding the comparison between traditional classroom instruction and online education, and the results are somewhat mixed but quite interesting. I told the conference audience that I would send the slides around, so I figured that I would put them here as well:

You can also access the original PowerPoint slides here. The papers referenced in the talk can be found at the following links:

In case you want even more reading material, I am told that the organizers of the conference have started a blog.

    I believe learning can be done from anywhere whether it’s online or offline, we just need to be determined in doing it. I work with OctaFX broker and they have quality demo contest like Champion and cTrader. I love cTrader demo contest more because it gives me opportunity very often since it’s a weekly based contest and has 400 USD prizes, so I can learn so much from by participating so regularly and I don’t need to waste my time on normal demo account.

    Everything posted made a bunch of sense. However, think on this, suppose you were to
    write a killer post title? I ain’t saying your information is not good., however suppose you added a headline that
    makes people desire more? I mean What Do Online
    Learning And Mardi Gras Have In Common? Let Econgirl
    Show You is kinda plain. You should glance
    at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write article headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could
    make your posts a little livelier.
