Join Master of Behavioral and Decision Sciences (MBDS) students and faculty for a group project presentation for one of the MBDS core courses, BDS 501 Behavioral Science: Theory & Application of Experimental Methods. For their projects, six groups of students are examining decision-making through the lens of behavioral economics. Their projects are original and involve both the collection and analysis of data. The topics are:
- Digital Disruption and Pair Performance: An Experimental Study on the Effect of Phone Presence on Pair Performance during a Cooperative Crossword Task
- Contracts or Trust?: Investigating the Use of Contracts as a Tool for Creating Symbiotic Relationships
- How Broken Trust Can Be Restored: Examining Degrees of Trust and Self-Sacrificing Behaviors in Trust Repair
- Cheaters Never Prosper: A Randomized Control Trial Looking at Gender Performance Differences in Competition and Cheating Behavior on Penn’s Campus
- Ethnic Heterogeneity, Social Identity Threat, and the Choice between In-Group Solidarity and Self-Interest
- What’s Trending?: Effectiveness of Social Norm Intervention
From 11 a.m. to noon, the groups will give a quick, mostly non-technical presentation about their project followed by a Q & A. From noon - 1:30, attendees are invited to view the posters, speak with the students, and have lunch.
Please RSVP by November 25.
