Abstract

The authors provide an overview of papers presented at The Scholarship of Teaching Economics conference that was held at The University of Melbourne in July 2000. The objective of the conference was to bring attention to research being conducted in economic education at the tertiary level and to engage academic economists in discussion about the scholarship of teaching economics. The presentations of seven of the keynote speakers are discussed using the framework of who, what, and how of teaching economics. Who should determine the curriculum? What should be taught? And how should it be taught?.
