Description

Teaching Integrity in Empirical Research: The Pedagogy of Reproducible Science in Undergraduate Education and Beyond

With Richard Ball, professor, Department of Economics, Haverford College

Many journals now require authors to submit extensive public-facing documentation to support empirical papers. In this talk, Professor Richard Ball discusses teaching research transparency to students in quantitative fields of study. Project TIER (Teaching Integrity in Empirical Research) integrates transparent and reproducible research methods into instruction by developing standard protocols for conducting and documenting statistical research. Enacting these protocols ensures that all reported results are computationally reproducible, and that the methods employed are immediately legible to other researchers.

Professor Ball gives an overview of the approaches to research reproducibility that Project TIER promotes, discusses the resulting educational benefits, and considers lessons for professional research practice that emerge from using the Project TIER system. The seminar  also identifies potential opportunities for collaboration between Project TIER and UW faculty to promote transparency in education and research.
