This section of ECON 108 focuses on economic analysis through service-learning. Service-learning is a teaching-learning process that involves students in the community for both service and learning reasons.
The service this academic term will be at one of a number of local agencies where you will serve in capacities that are negotiated with the staff there. The learning will focus on observation and analysis at the service agency. As you serve in the agency, you will observe and actively analyze incentives, decision-making and the costs and benefits of the agency.
Written assignments include keeping a structured journal and an end-of-term paper summarizing your observations and analysis.
All readings will be available on the CTools website for the course.
Students in ECON 108 MUST BE enrolled in ECON 101. Please contact Jan Gerson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in enrolling for ECON 108 and are unable to register for it.
