Seminar Paper


In this combined lecture and seminar, students will learn how to design and conduct experiments with human subjects in order to answer questions in the area of Human-Computer Interaction. True experiments are still considered the gold standard if causal conclusions are of interest. Hence, experiments are an important research method in many empirical research disciplines and they become also more widely applied e.g., in A/B testing in companies. Knowledge about and experiences with experiments will be an asset for many different career paths.

The lecture will cover the essential elements of true experiments, different experimental designs, internal and external validity as well as important ethical considerations. Later on, students will have the opportunity to design and conduct an experiment themselves and apply their new knowledge step-by-step.


First session: 28. April 2020 16:15 - 17:15h Zoom Meeting.

IMPORTANT: If you have registered after 30.04.2020 11:30h please contact me via e-mail (fenne.grosse.deters[at]uni-potsdam.de) to receive the information on how to sign up on Moodle. Thank you.
