Please join The Journal of Economics Teaching in-person in Blacksburg August 1-3, 2024. JET SET is co-hosted with Virginia Tech’s Economics Department.

Here’s what sets JET SET apart:

  • The conference, like the journal, is open to everyone. This is the only conference of its kind to actively foster networking amongst all passionate econ educators, whether they are professors or K-12 teachers.
  • Learning outcomes take center stage. Each session is designed with your students’ learning in mind and you’ll leave with practical information you can apply in your classroom immediately.
  • They teach you to fish! Ok, not really, but JET wants to give you the tools to publish your great teaching innovations and increase your impact! JET’s awesome editors will lead a results-oriented workshop for those who want to learn what it takes to get their classroom innovations ready for publication in JET.
  • We’ll have fun! They’ve sprinkled in interesting events throughout the conference, including a fun 5k run on Saturday morning! We’ve even found a way to make the shuttle ride from the airport interesting. Sign up and see for yourself.

This conference, like the journal, is open to everyone.

We can’t wait to see you at JET SET! Please join us!
