One Day Virtual Seminars

One Day Virtual Seminars are a popular option for educators who are looking for a shorter, more flexible format to enhance their economics knowledge.  

Lectures and interactive simulations are conducted with the group via Zoom and often incorporate active discussions within breakout rooms to give participants the chance to not only observe, but also to take part in reciprocal strategies, which in turn help them learn how to best demonstrate economics concepts in their own classrooms.

The virtual setting of the programs provides teachers with the ability to gain professional development hours from home or a location of their choosing.  Lessons demonstrated in the One Day Virtual sessions can be adapted to use in either virtual or regular classroom settings.

Seminars are offered on Saturdays throughout the school year and typically run between five to six hours. Professors and mentor teachers with expertise in the field of economics are also available for teachers to ask specific questions about teaching strategies and challenges, activity preparation, and other issues that can benefit from shared viewpoints.

Most One Day Virtual Seminars qualify for one graduate hour of credit in economics from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs for an additional fee. Please see the Graduate Credit Available button above for further information.
