Applications of Generative Learning for the Survey of International Economics Course
Educational Studies and Research
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.
