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:
- 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.
- We also encourage you to help each other out on problem sets. While the final product that you turn in must be your own individual work, you can still seek the help of your peers if you get stuck on a particular part of the problem set. Learning from and teaching your peers is a great way to master the content of the class and foster relationships with your colleagues. Note that this does not apply to the assessment questions, which must be completed independently.
- 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.
