About this product
- DescriptionSarnikar cites evidence of frequent misconceptions of ecomics amongst students, graduates, and even some ecomists, and argues that behavioral ecomists are uniquely qualified to investigate causes of poor learning in ecomics. She conducts a review of the ecomics education literature to identify gaps in current research efforts and suggests a two-pronged approach to fill the gaps: an engineering approach to the adoption of invative teaching methods and a new research program to enhance ecomists' understanding of how learning occurs. To facilitate research into learning processes, Sarnikar provides an overview of selected learning theories from psychology, as well as new data on hidden misconceptions amongst beginning students of ecomics. She argues that if they ask the right questions, ecomists of all persuasions are likely to find surprising lessons in the answers of beginning students of ecomics.
