    Eric Chiang

    Eric P. Chiang received his bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Nevada Las Vegas and his master’s and doctorate in economics from the University of Florida. His first academic position was at New Mexico State University. Currently, Eric is an associate professor and graduate director of the Department of Economics at Florida Atlantic University. Eric also serves as the director of instructional technology for the College of Business.

    In 2009 Eric was the recipient of Florida Atlantic University’s highest teaching honor, the Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award. Among numerous other teaching awards, he also was named the Stewart Distinguished Professor at the College of Business. He has written over 35 articles in peer-reviewed journals on a range of subjects, including technology spillovers, intellectual property rights, telecommunications, and health care. His research has appeared in leading journals, including the Review of Economics and Statistics, Journal of Technology Transfer, and Southern Economic Journal. He is a frequent presenter at major economics conferences and at universities across the country and around the world.

    As an instructor who teaches both face-to-face and online courses, Eric uses a variety of technological tools, including clickers, Web-based polling, lecture capture, and homework management systems to complement his active-learning-style lectures. As an administrator in the College of Business, Eric’s role as director of instructional technology involves assisting instructors with effectively implementing classroom technologies. In this position, Eric also ensures that the quality of online courses meets accreditation standards, including those set by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

    In addition to his dedication to teaching economic principles and his administrative duties, Eric devotes time to new research in economic education. His current research focuses on student learning outcomes in economics education based on the different methods of instruction in use today. The fifth edition of Economics: Principles for a Changing World embodies Eric’s devotion to economics education and the benefits of adapting to the new, often creative ways in which students learn and instructors teach.

    In his spare time, Eric enjoys studying cultures and languages. He has visited all fifty U.S. states and over eighty countries, often taking long jogs in the cities he visits to experience local life to the fullest. A more quirky fact: Eric is a professional mini-golf player, having competed in both the Pro Mini Golf U.S. Open and Masters tournaments. In 2019, he was a contestant on ABC’s extreme mini-golf game show Holey Moley.
