Felix Kwan, PhD
I teach Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, Money & Banking, and International Trade & Finance.
I strive to make economics come alive for my students, through real-world applications and connections to their daily lives. I also believe that assessment is an important element of teaching and learning. Neuroscience has found that frequent relevant quizzing fosters deep learning. Thus, a lot of quizzes occur in my classes.
My current research is on student engagement and learning. I study what experts in neuroscience are discovering about the brain and the learning process and how I may apply their ideas in my teaching. Thus, I’m studying what lessons brain science offers to educators on how we might better engage our students and facilitate their learning.
I have been with Maryville for more than 20 years.
