Abstract

Generative learning provides students with opportunities to organize course content, integrate new content with students' Current knowledge, and elaborate on course content by making connections to real-world events. These opportunities promote less reliance on professors' lectures and simultaneously create more self-reliance among students. The authors offer categories of generative learning strategies and briefly discuss their merits. They offer ideas for implementing generative strategies into the day-to-day events of an economics Course. Although the authors use a survey of international economics Course as their example, the ideas in this article could be applied in a variety of economics courses.
