||Macmillan Learning is moving to a new online homework system, and the Economics Author will be a key player in the transition. The Economics Author will learn the new online authoring system and help convert existing material to the new system, as well
as creating new questions as needed. All these questions must have targeted feedback and full solutions designed to improve the learning process for our students. The primary texts we will be working are principles and intermediate micro and macro, but there
will be other upper level courses in the future.
Edit converted questions and make sure they function properly.
Authoring hints and feedback that anticipate common student errors, provide insightful diagnosis of their misconceptions, and coach them toward mastering the material.
Creating solutions to these questions that are complete and concise.
Authoring new material as needed to round out the question bank.
