Tim Hubbard | Active Learning

Tim Hubbard, Associate Professor of Economics, frequently has his students participate in simple games for his course in Game Theory, EC379. However, there were limitations to his analog approach, including some students quickly developing a reputation as being a certain type of player. Prompted by the FIT fellowship, Tim and the team in Academic ITS implemented a tool called oTree, in which students would use their own device to play anonymously. This also allowed for a larger data set of interactions to be captured, enabling students to see larger trends.
