Teaching

I lecture both in French and in English.  Courses include introductory level. Math for Economists, Money and Banking, History of Economic Thought, Intermediate Macroeconomics, Advanced Macroeconomics, and Canadian Economic Problems. 

My teaching philosophy centers around training students to be critical thinkers and scholars, which includes training them to write academic papers.  All my classes contain the writing of an essay. Emphasis is placed on asking the right question and providing a balanced answer.
