oTree Online Workshops

I give online workshops on how to develop experiments with oTree. The workshops are aimed at people with no or little prior experience with oTree and aim to teach people everything they need to know about oTree to comfortably start developing and deploying their own experiments. The details for these workshops are:
  • Teaching Methods: A mixture of lectures, exercises and coding demonstrations
  • Prerequisites: none
  • Workshop Duration: 18-20 hours, spread across 2-4 days
  • When: Approximately once every two month, if demand allows it
  • Fee: €100, fee reduction / waiver possible if needed

Next Workshop

I am on the 2023-24 Job Market and unfortiunately will not be able to teach any workshops until at least March 2024.

oTree Workshops for Departments

I also teach oTree workshops for departments or research groups. Those workshops broadly cover the same material as the online workshops, but can be adjusted to fit the departments needs (e.g. shorter / longer duration, advanced workshops for researchers with prior knowledge). If you are interested in hosting a workshop at your department please contact me.
