DSU Professor to Present at Premier Economics Conference
December 23, 2008 Written by Jona Schmidt
Dan Talley, Dakota State University Associate Professor of Economics College of Business and Information Systems, has been chosen as an expert discussant by the National Association of Economic Educators (NAEE) and National Council on Economic Education (NCEE) at the 2009 Allied Social Science Association annual meeting January 3-5 in San Francisco, CA.
Talley was recognized by the NAEE and NCEE for his leadership using technology in the teaching of economics and was chosen to serve as an expert discussant based upon a review of his credentials. Talley will represent Dakota State at what is considered the premier conference in the discipline of economics. The Allied Social Science Association annual meeting is expected to draw several thousand economists from around the world.
Talley was chosen to serve as an expert discussant based upon a review of his credentials. In an interesting coincidence, the authors of the paper Talley will review, Drs. Trien T. Nguyen and Angela Tramarchi of the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada), cited a paper Talley presented related to this topic at the 2005 ASSA meetings in Philadelphia, PA.
Talley's paper, "Teaching and Technology: Learning in a High-Tech Environment Revisited" evaluates both Aplia and the online technology teaching tools available in Dakota State University's mobile computing environment, which had only recently been implemented at the time.
Talley has been at Dakota State since 1996
