New Ways to Learn at High Point University


With help from a Charles Koch Foundation grant, Professors Stephanie Crofton and Daniel Hall created an opportunity for student programmers at High Point University to develop an economics app that hundreds of students and experimental economists around the world now use. Enhancing experiential learning, the app challenges students’ understanding of economic principles and simulates how they would play out in real life. At the same time, using the app helps Crofton and Hall move away from the traditional “chalk and talk” model of learning and help students have a personalized experience.
