Registered students will be informed by the lecturers on how to attend the online course.

This seminar focuses on recent developments in experimental economics. Each weak, students critically discuss one recent paper, with an emphasis on the experimental design and data analysis. A major objective of the course is for students to develop a great deal of familiarity with the design of experiments as a method for economic research. Participants are expected to attend all sessions and participate actively in the discussions.

It is recommended that participants are familiar with fundamental concepts of causal inference and data analysis.

To obtain course credits, students have to submit 3 one-pagers (not graded) and write a final referee report (ca. 10.000 characters).

Course registration is open from 5.3.2020-5.4.2020. To register, students should send an email to Dr. Jana Friedrichsen (jana.friedrichsen@hu-berlin.de) and Dr. Lea Heursen (lea.heursen@hu-berlin.de).
