The instructor will not teach again these prerequisite items. If you doubt whether you possess that knowledge to a sufficient extent, we suggest you contact the instructor before you proceed to your registration. Basic empirical methods, research design, deductive reasoning, and strategic thinking. Knowledge of standard game-theoretic concepts is helpful but no precondition. Short course outline The course offers an introduction to the methods and techniques of experimental empirical research. It pursues the agenda of providing the theoretical knowledge to find a research question, deduce hypotheses and design an experiment. Hence, the focus will be on general methodological and design issues, rather than surveying the existing experimental literature. We will follow a learning-by-doing approach, in which students will frequently participate in experiments that demonstrate abstraction, formation of hypothesis and approaches to test them along with interactive lectures. The last part of the course will be devoted to implementation where we will look at the procedures and regularities of lab, field and survey experiments.
