Join us for a special event, featuring guest speakers Professor Dirk Mateer and Assistant Professor Charity-Joy Acchiardo.

Award-winning instructor Dirk Mateer's use of pop culture is part of his signature teaching style; collecting resources to keep large classes of students engaged, helping effectively teach economics, and having fun in the process.

This event features media highlights from popular culture to make the experience for economics teachers more dynamic. Using clips from popular music such as The Beatles, TV shows such as The Office and The Cosby Show, and movies like Confessions of a Shopaholic and Moneyball, Professor Mateer makes economics relevant and entertaining.
