Best Practices

Here are some quick tips to help make your resource easily searchable in the EconED Active Community:

 

Add tags

You can tag your resource with relevant keywords to help your colleagues search and find your content by related topics or by type of content. Here are some examples of tags: microeconomics, macroeconomics, diminishing marginal utility, syllabus, transition guide, active learning, flipped classroom.

Select a category

When you add your resource, check off the relevant categories. The categories represent major topics in micro and macroeconomics and will help organize your resource with other related content.  You can select more than one category, if more than one applies.
