Application of Interactive Teaching in Teaching Microeconomics: A Case Study of Teaching the Short-Term Cost Theory

Shujia CHENG, Chunrong YU


In the traditional method of microeconomics teaching, teachers are guides who explain theories, models and curves. However, students are usually not fully participated in the class, thus the teaching effect is poor. In order to solve this problem, our research group have explored an application of interactive teaching method for microeconomics teaching. This paper shows an example on how to apply the interactive teaching method in teaching the short-term cost theory and expounds the problems in this process. Aiming at the problems and following the idea of interactive teaching, this study designs the corresponding teaching questions and processes, explains how to achieve the teaching goals through answering the questions, and finally discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the teaching method in teaching the cost theory.
