Center for Economic Education

The Center for Economic Education is the newest of nine centers at four-year institutions within Wisconsin. Our service area is K-12 school districts in CESA 10 and 11. The center provides educators with valuable assistance.

K-12 educators can participate in many different center-sponsored and organized activities including:

  • Workshops
  • In-service training
  • Graduate courses
  • Access to a well-stocked library of resources
  • Training for the "The Stock Market Game"
  • Access to CBE professors as classroom speakers and information specialists
  • Internet interaction with UWRF faculty

The center's activities are conducted in a variety of different methods and locations: on the UWRF campus; at locations within CESA 10 and 11; through distance education technology; through online opportunities for asynchronous courses, student activity pages; and through informal interaction with economists.

Courses will be offered at times and places convenient for educators. These courses will help you develop a deeper understanding of basic economic concepts and give ideas on how to best teach these concepts. Partial tuition scholarships are available for Wisconsin teachers.

The National Council on Economic Education, the Wisconsin Council and the College of Business and Economics at UW-River Falls have developed outstanding curricular materials that are of great use to educators. The UW-River Falls Center for Economic Education maintains an up-to-date collection of these materials.

The UW-River Falls Center for Economic Education provides economic education training workshops on a variety of topics including assistance with "The Stock Market Game." These workshops provide fun and effective materials and projects for classroom use.
