This course aims to introduce students and researchers in the social sciences to oTree, a leading framework based on Python to develop and administer experiments in the social sciences.
The course does assume a basic understanding of experimental methodology in the social sciences.
Participants will be provided with the necessary knowledge to program experiments of medium complexity in oTree and to administer them over the internet. Participants will also be given the opportunity to discuss specific programming issues encountered during the development of their own projects with the course’s instructor.
The course is open to a maximum of 100 participants.

The course has an intense format and is organised as follows: 12h of live teaching (18h including the primer sessions), split in 4 (6) bi-weekly sessions of 3h each; one office hour per week in groups of max 5 participants; small programming assignments in-between live classes.
The course will be taught using Zoom app.
The course will run between the 1st and the 18th of June 2021.
Class times: Tuesdays and Fridays, 14:00 – 17:00 (UTC+1).
The primer sessions will run on Tuesday, 1st and Friday, 4th of June.
The course will focus on oTree’s latest version and will cover all the fundamental components of developing an experimental study in oTree – including (but not limited to) the following topics:
The content will be covered following a project-oriented approach, where each topic will be used to develop a predefined experimental design that will be shared at the beginning of the course.
