Help us with our digital ink survey

Dan Talley and I are preparing a digital ink survey of department chairs and faculty in economics nationwide. We are going to try to determine the extent of use of digital ink and how this may effect our pedagogy. If you are a digital ink user (or would like to be) can you reply directly to Dan and I with the questions that interest you, both research questions and the survey questions that should be asked to ascertain the effect of digital ink on our teaching. Click on this sentence to reply to us directly.

If you know of other surveys of use and pedagogy in other disciplines let us know as well. Thanks.

ASSA meetings coming up

Finally this semester is over and the national meetings in New Orleans are just two weeks away. I will be presenting two papers, one on Assessment of the Economics Program and one on PBL in econometics. The first paper reports on a national survey of department chairs... pretty cool results. If you read this and see me there ...say hi.
