Expanded Course Description
How do we make sense of human behavior? In this course, we will develop an instinct for an empirical answer: "Follow the data". "Follow the data" is a core principle in all sciences. In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of how to create new knowledge about human behavior by carefully considering the properties of data collected from human beings. We will wrestle with how to create an informative empirical endeavor: from making observations, to formulating a testable scientific hypothesis, to collecting relevant and valid data, to analyzing and communicating these data, to asking what's next. Making sense of how and why people feel, think and act the way they do is something we all do everyday -- in this course, we will learn how to give ourselves the best shot at making conclusions that are true. Whether we read about others' discoveries or make our own, we should follow the data.
