    Educators have been teaching monetary policy the same way for decades: The Fed conducts open market operations (OMO) to move the federal funds rate higher or lower. However, this approach has been out-of-date for over a decade.

    This session will describe the Fed’s current framework and offer teaching resources for teaching the new monetary policy framework. 

    Participants will:

    • Learn how monetary policy evolved from pre-crisis, during the crisis, and to where it stands today.
    • Learn about the new tools and strategies used by the Federal Reserve in the implementation of monetary policy.
    • Discover new strategies for teaching the new monetary policy framework.
    •  Learn about classroom resources available that accurately describe the new framework.
    • Learn how to access relevant Federal Reserve education resources online.
