This paper reports on the use of active learning methods in teaching an upper level undergraduate course on water resource economics in the Department of Agricultural & Applied Economics. The elements used in the course include distance learning technology, a web site, readings, the interactive use of course notes over E-mail, computer programs and a set of five projects that account for 100 percent of the student grade. The paper will also report on a three-day "mock negotiation" session, held at the University of Alabama, comprised of students from Georgia, Florida and Alabama concerning the tri-state water negotiations.
