This study presents a novel approach to elevate economics education, primarily focusing on utilizing ChatGPT, an advanced language model, to help collegiate students understand and engage in topics within the complex field of macroeconomics. With the ever-increasing changes and challenges in economies, coupled with professors’ high emphases on equations and graphs, and lack of introduction of human behaviors that drive an economy, this study also integrates a proven 5-step conceptual framework while implementing prompt responses from ChatGPT. This paper presents economic educators with transformative tools to enhance student learning, such as mastery of student learning outcomes, overall classroom engagement, and knowledge retention of macroeconomic concepts, by utilizing ChatGPT, leading to higher academic performance.
