Teaching materials

Here’s where I’ll post selected old teaching materials. I’ll add stuff here slowly and haphazardly. I don’t typically post syllabuses because they’re too intimate. I might post a genericized version of a syllabus but that’s about it. Everything else is fair game. No promises, no demands. Caveat emptor.

  • Economics and Psychology (last taught under the code Econ 119 at UC Berkeley, Summer 2021)
    • I taught this course in a six week, intensive format, so for fun I organized everything around six one-word topics: choice, time, risk, games, fairness, belief. Fitting what I wanted to do into those six boxes was really interesting.
    • I’m a big fan of teaching behavioral economics as a course about research literacy, experimental design, research proposals, modeling tools, and the theory-data cycle rather than as a corpus of knowledge, per se. I don’t fully believe the core theory is ripe enough or settled enough to be worth distilling down to an analog of intermediate micro.
