I’ve got a lot of subsections of applications that I can cover in any particular semester in my Environmental Economics course. I decided that before spending my entire summer prepping up materials in the dark, I would ask my students which extra topics they would be most and least interested in learning more about. I won’t give you the exhaustive list of what I asked them to evaluate, but here is what the class has indicated (60 responses out of a class of apx 80).
Most Preferred Topics
Least Preferred Topics
I am not surprised (but disappointed) by their least preferred topics. Either the students feel like they know everything they need to know about those topics, or they have fatigue regarding those topics, or … any other ideas?
