The teaching of economics at the undergraduate level requires a unique set of skills, including intellectual rigor and flexibility, a breadth and depth of knowledge about one's teaching subject, good humour, and a capacity for understanding, compassion and patience. Even those individuals who are truly exceptional researchers, supervisors and graduate instructors do not always possess the specific skills required to excel as an undergraduate teacher. With the support of the Economics Trust, the alumni, students, faculty and staff of the Queen's Economics Department recognize and celebrate excellence and dedication in the teaching of undergraduate economics with the Queen's Economics Department (QED) Undergraduate Teaching Prize.
