Ethics, Economics, and Social Issues

  • Thursday, July 27, 2023

Registration is closed

   Presented by John Kruggel


Today's students are interested in justice and equitable treatment. But what does that mean and how can we talk about it in the classroom? Economists operate within an ethical framework when they evaluate outcomes, public issues, or make decisions. The workshop will demonstrate to all participants a selection of lessons from a new curriculum designed to help instructors address difficult topics at the intersection of ethics and economics. The curriculum contains 15 independent lessons at no cost via the internet. Each lesson is active, thought-provoking, and requires students to think about how ethics is a valuable and necessary tool to think like an economist.  


John Kruggel has over 15 years' experience teaching at the K-12 level. During that time, John was named an Armstrong Teacher Educator by Indiana University, he won Indiana Economics Teacher of the Year, and was named honorary Secretary of State for his work teaching economics and personal finance in Indiana. In 2017 he graduated from the University of Delaware’s Master of Arts in Economics and Entrepreneurship for Educators program.

He currently teaches principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics at JMU. He is a member of the Executive Committee for the National Association of Economics Educators and won the NAEE Rising Star Award in 2023.
