İktisat Öğretiminde Deneysel Yöntem: Sınıf Deneyleri Ve Uluslararası İktisat Uygulamaları
Experimental Method in Teaching Economics: Classroom Experiments and Its Applications to International Economics

Genelde iktisat konuları öğrencilere oldukça soyut düzeyde öğretilmekte ve bu da öğrencilerin iktisat derslerine yönelik tutumlarını olumsuz etkilemektedir. Fakat dersler öğrencilerin kararlar aldığı ve etkileşimde bulunduğu sınıf deneyleri ile tamamlanabilir. Sınıf deneyleri herşeyden önce öğrencileri ekonomik karar vericiler rolüne koyarak önemli iktisadi kavramları kendi kendilerine keşfetme imkanı ve kitaplarda verilen teorilerin uygunluğunu görme fırsatı sunmaktadır. Nitekim yapılan çalışmalar sınıf deneyleri ile öğrencilerin iktisat derslerine daha fazla ilgi gösterdikleri ve sınavlarda daha başarılı olduklarını göstermiştir. Bununla birlikte sınıf deneylerinde uluslararası iktisat kavramlarını yansıtmak mikro iktisadi kavramlarınkinden daha zordur. Sonuç olarak bu alanda çok az deney bulunmaktadır. Bu sınıf deneyleri daha çok karşılaştırmalı üstünlüklerin işleyişi, ticarette uzmanlaşmanın önemi ve döviz kuru üzerine odaklanmıştır. Bu çalışmanın amacı da sınıf deneylerini tanıtmak ve bunun uluslararası iktisat üzerindeki uygulamalarını göstermektir
In general, economics courses are taught to the students at a fairly abstract level and it has a negative effect on student’s attitudes towards economic courses. But the courses can be completed with classroom experiments that students make decisions and interact with. Classroom experiments give the students the opportunity to explore on their own basic economic concepts by putting them in the role of economic decision makers and the chance to see the appropriateness of theories given in the books. Indeed, the studies on classroom experiments showed that with classroom experiments students are more interesded in economic courses and more successful in the exams. However, it is more difficult to reflect international economics concepts in classroom experiments than micro-economic concepts. As a result very few classroom experiments exist in this area. These classroom experiments mostly focused on the operation of comparative advantage, the importance of specialization in trade and exchange rate. The aim of this study is to introduce the classroom experiments and to show its applications on international economics
