Introduction to Experiments

with Dr. Donald Green

  • Hilton New Orleans Riverside, Two Poydras St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Workshop Description

In this workshop, Professor Green will guide participants through the logic of experimentation, its strengths and weaknesses compared to other methodologies, and the ways in which experimentation has been — and could be — used to investigate political, social, and economic phenomena. He will discuss various types of social science experiments, including lab experiments, survey experiments, field experiments and naturally occurring experiments, while attending to the ethical concerns that must be taken into account when conducting research with human subjects. The goal in this session will be to give participants the important foundational tools to be able to conduct their own experiments. ​Audience & Prerequisites: This workshop serves as a broad introduction to social science experiments. Participants are expected to come to the session with some experience designing a research study and with a question or hypothesis that they wish to investigate using experimental design.
