BEELab promotes the use of experiments as an educational tool in the social sciences. The effectiveness of "classroom experiments" from an educational point of view is well documented.
A specific working group, coordinated by Nicola Doni, carries out research in this area, testing new tools and promoting their dissemination for educational purposes.
BEELab is also directly involved in courses explicitly dedicated to experimental economics at various levels of university studies (BSc, MSc and PhD.).
- Experimental Economics (PhD.)
- Experimental Economics Lab (MSc)
- Laboratorio di Economia Sperimentale (BSc)
The aim is to clarify the meaning, highlighting the potential and limits, of the use of experiments in the social sciences and in particular in economics, through the study of the literature, the design and the practical implementation of experiments.
