Introduction to Experiments in Social Science Research

Workshop Dates: Monday, August 9 - Friday, August 13, 2021
Workshop Times: 11:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)
Instructor: Allyson Holbrook, University of Illinois at Chicago

This virtual workshop introduces participants to the logic of experiments conducted in social science disciplines, including different types of experimental designs, the importance of random assignment, and experiments and validity. Participants will be introduced to laboratory experiments, field experiments, and experiments implemented in surveys. If time permits, the workshop will finish with brief discussions of some debates in the application of experiments, including bias against the null hypothesis in the design and conduct of experiments, the use of balance tests to establish the success of random assignment, and concerns about strategies like p-hacking, HARKing, and the replication crisis in some social science disciplines (along with the increased popularity of experiment preregistration and other steps taken to address these concerns). The format of the workshop will be a combination of short lectures, class discussions, and small group activities designed to allow participants to apply their knowledge to specific research situations.
