June 2 – BITSS and partners hosted a panel session entitled “Teaching the Evolving Standards of Reproducibility” at 2:30 – 4:30 pm ET at the eleventh AEA Conference on Teaching and Research in Economic Education (CTREE) in Chicago, IL. Speakers Lars Vilhuber (Cornell University), Fernando Hoces de la Guardia (BITSS), and Bárbara Flores Arenas (University of Chile):
Discussed the evolving standards of reproducibility in economics, challenges and lessons learned from efforts led by the AEA Data Editor, and opportunities for improvement in the teaching and conduct of research;
Presented the Social Science Reproduction Platform, an online resource for assessing and teaching computational reproducibility; and
Presented approaches and resources for teaching reproducibility at the undergraduate level.
Join two sessions with BITSS staff members on Jan. 7 at the 2022 Allied Social Science Associations Annual Meeting:
At 3:45 pm-5:45 pm PT, Ted Miguel will moderate a panel discussion titled “Ethics, Transparency, and Innovation in Economics Publishing” with Pinelopi Goldberg (Yale University), Imran Rasul (University College London), Andrew Foster (Brown University), and Jeannie Gersen (Harvard University).
At 7am-1 pm ET, Aleks Bogdanoski will be available to discuss a poster titled “Using the Social Science Reproduction Platform to Teach Reproducibility.”
Jun. 2, online — At 3-5 pm PT, BITSS, the AEA Data Editor, and the Research Division of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis will host a joint workshop at the Tenth Annual AEA Conference on Teaching and Research in Economic Education (CTREE). The workshop will give an overview of the evolving landscape of reproducibility standards in economics, teach foundational skills in data literacy for reproducibility, demonstrate a curricular module for conducting and reporting reproductions, and discuss opportunities for instructors, students, and researchers to contribute to these ongoing efforts.
