Back to Graduate School for a Day

Did you ever wish you can just take a day and revisit graduate school and ask all the questions that you are inundated with from curious students?


On March 5, 2009, The Federal Reserve hosted Back to Graduate School for a Day with renowned guest lecturer and economic textbook author, David Colander. He has authored over 35 books and 100 journal articles.


The day included concurrent sections spanning both micro- and macroeconomics topics aimed at high school educators teaching economics. By the end of the day, participants had had the oppotunity to sharpen their skills, met with other educators with your similar passion for teaching economics and learned teaching tips from Colander.


For more information, email Cindy Ivanac-Lillig or James Chasey.
