Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Experimental economics has recently become a popular research method for understanding all aspects of individual and group economic behavior. Economists use laboratory, field and internet experiments to test the validity of economic theories and efficiency of market mechanisms. Knowing how to properly design and implement an economic experiment has become increasingly important.
The idea of the seminar is to develop the research skills required in the field of Experimental Economics. Students will become familiar with the following aspects of experimental research: (1) how to develop a good research question, (2) how to design and implement an experiment to address the posed research question, (3) how to analyze experimental data and making conclusions justified by statistical evidence. By the end of the course students will have completed and experimental research project.
To be enrolled in the course, students need to have taken a class providing a solid introduction into the field, for example "Behavioral and Experimental Economics" (UK 040832). Students with comparable backgrounds can also be admitted but need to provide evidence that their knowledge is comparable. PhD students with an appropriate background are also welcome to attend the class.
Successful completion of the course earns students 8 ECTS credits.

Prüfungsstoff

This research-based course will be taught in a highly interactive way. During the course, students will learn how typical research in experimental economics is conducted, starting with posing and developing a research question, continuing with a proper experimental design, programming and implementation, and finishing with basic data analysis and the reporting of main findings. Students will work in groups of 2 or 3 on developing their own experiment. They will be required to present their research question supported by the recent developments in the literature early in the course. After receiving a feedback from instructors and peers, they will work on the experimental design. They will have an opportunity to present their design and receive feedback from instructors and peers before running pilot experimental sessions. Pilot sessions will be run with other students taking the course participating as subjects. Data from the pilot sessions will be analyzed to identify preliminary results. Students will then reflect on their experience to identify improvements in the design and further extensions to their research question. Based on their work during the semester, students will write, present and submit a project report.
