Faculty and Alums to Give Virtual Talks on Teaching and Travel

Two new online webinars, free and available to the entire Hobart and William Smith community, will give participants a glimpse into teaching economics during a crisis and allow them to take a virtual trip to Vietnam.

“From the Classroom to You: Teaching Economics During a Pandemic” features Professor of Economics and Environmental Studies and Chair of the Entrepreneurial Studies Program Thomas Drennen, Assistant Professor of Economics Joshua Greenstein, Professor of Economics Feisal Khan and Instructor of Economics Jennifer Tessendorf.

Each faculty member will share how they are addressing the impact of the pandemic as it relates to their overall course topics, including natural resources and energy, international trade, inequality and macroeconomics. The event takes place on Thursday, May 7 at 4 p.m. To register, click here.
