Collaboration

One of the best ways that people learn is by teaching and collaborating with others. In this class we facilitate collaboration in three different ways:

  1. In lecture we'll use the Learning Catalytics platform for you to discuss difficult questions related to the content of the lecture. Learning Catalytics will automatically assign you to small groups to discuss your answers to these questions. This gives everybody a chance to teach and learn from their peers.
  2. Early in the semester we will divide the class into small study groups. You will be encouraged to work with this groups on problem sets and other assignments throughout the semester. While you should post any questions you have to the message board on Canvas, your study group can serve as an extra resource for working through any difficulties you encounter.
  3. On the replication paper you will choose your co-collaborators. This will give you the chance to write a journal-quality research paper with the help of your peers.
