How to Run Experiments
The course provides a comprehensive overview of the experimental methodology and its applications. At the end of the course, students should master the basic tools which are necessary to understand the existing experimental literature, and to assess the strengths and weaknesses of an experimental paper. A number of applications will be discussed during the course and participants will familiarize with both lab and field experiments.
The course targets students that are interested in the experimental literature, either because they plan to run experiments as a part of their research, or because they would like to be able to read with a critical view the experimental literature available in their area of specialization.
Participation in the course does not require any prior knowledge of the field, but a basic background in statistics and econometrics would help.
