Incorporating Reproducibility and Transparency in an Undergraduate Economics Course Catalyst Training ProjectEconomics

Jeffrey Naecker

This project will develop lectures and hands-on materials to teach key reproducibility, replication, and transparency concepts for an undergraduate economics audience. The goal is to translate existing BITSS materials for students who have no research experience, setting the stage for them to develop good research habits as early as possible. The output will include 4.5 hours of lecture materials and three problem sets/lab activities. Materials will be field-tested in the Catalyst’s experimental economics course and made available online.
