More Information
Teaching Environmental and Natural Resource Economics is a significant contribution to the literature of economics education. Theory and practice, teaching activities and exercises, and pro teaching tips are clearly and expertly presented.

The editors begin by presenting a bit of the historical thought on the study of environmental and natural resource economics. Once the editors establish context, they provide a full exploration of both paradigms and pedagogy. The paradigm section provides models for teaching the variety of courses offered at the university level. The chapters bridge the gap between environmental and natural resource economics textbooks and the classroom, with guidance for how to approach course topics. The pedagogy section is an excellent contribution to the teaching of environmental and natural resource economics, covering both particular topics and teaching methods.

University instructors will find this guide to teaching environmental and natural resource economics invaluable in helping students gain a better understanding of the theory and practice of environmental and natural resource economics.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book provides a treasure trove of different perspectives and tools that can enrich the teaching of an environmental and natural resource economics class. An especially valuable tool for those teaching this class for the first few times, and something I wish I had available when I was teaching the course.'
– John Loomis, Colorado State University, US

‘This book is a must have for anyone teaching environmental and natural resource economics. In a dynamically evolving discipline, having a go-to source for teaching ideas and examples is invaluable. Packed with concrete examples and a variety of teaching methods (from classroom experiments to the use of policy briefs to computer modeling and more) there is something for everyone in this practical and constructive set of papers. Whether you are just starting out in the classroom or you are a seasoned professor, this volume offers a fresh set of experiences and wisdom from which we can draw.’
– Lynne Lewis, Bates College, US

‘In one jump the editors and authors have created an essential resource for those teaching environmental economics (and frankly one which teachers of general microeconomics could benefit from greatly). Replete with the sort of detail that never usually gets disseminated, this collection provides the nitty gritty of setting up an environmental economics course accompanied by a wealth of great suggestions for encouraging learning-by-doing, making this a volume which is exemplary in both its ambition and achievement.’
– Ian J. Bateman, University of Exeter Business School, UK
