Preparing papers on economics education

What is IREE looking for ?


How do economics students learn?


What economics should be taught?


Constraints in improving economics teaching and learning?


How can current practice be improved?


Including assessment of learning.


What can we learn from other countries?


How can we make better use of electronic learning
technologies?
IREE now incorporates papers that would
formerly have appeared in CHEER.




IREE has two main sections

1.


Research in Economics Education


Papers typically between 4000
-
6000 words.


2.


Practice in Economics Education


Shorter articles
-

examples of good practice re learning,
teaching and assessment.

IREE is well recognised

We see:



innovative
ways to teach certain topics



informed
by understanding how students learn



reflections on
how to facilitate better student learning



studies of
assessment

of students (and student assessments of us !)

Tips for getting published in IREE


demonstrate the evidence
-
based issue or problem in learning and
teaching of economics



connect with the literature and establish the contribution



demonstrate wide appeal: 1
st

year or undergrad issues have wider
appeal than post
-
grad


make sure it’s about economics education (not education economics)



what

students should learn in economics



how

they learn economics and how learning can be improved,


how their learning of economics should be
assessed



make sure any empirics are sound



pay attention to sample size


if there a control group, state any limitations



use the right econometric tests



don’t claim too much: e.g. if
p

values > 0.1 don’t make strident claims


write well ! and proof
-
read carefully


Articles on electronic technology in

economics education


We are delighted to announce that issues of IREE now
incorporate articles that would have otherwise appeared in
CHEER (Computers in Higher Education Economics Review).



We continue
CHEER’s

longstanding contribution to the
development of innovative practice in the use of ICT in
economics education.



Including articles in this field in IREE will provide a unified
reference for readers and help to build connections
between ICT and other innovations in economics
education.
