I Know What You Did Last Summer: 10 Tips for Teaching Economics in Summer School

Abstract:     
The Economics Department of the University of Otago has offered introductory economics papers during the summer from 2001 and, since then, interest in doing papers during the summer school has steadily increased.

Teaching as well as taking a course over the summer school however, presents an important challenge for lecturers and students, mainly because of the intense nature of the summer school, i.e., courses are delivered within a six-week time frame. Because of this, teaching and learning techniques are likely to be different in the summer programme compared to that in the regular 13-week semester. The main motivation of this paper is to provide some guidelines for more effective teaching of first year economics papers during the summer school. It is hoped that these guidelines could also serve as a source of important information for anyone intending to teach in summer school.
