In J. Nathan Matias’s cross-disciplinary Designing Field Experiments at Scale course, teams of three to five undergraduate students work with community partners to design and conduct a field experiment that tests a question in the social sciences or computer science. Before the class, Matias negotiates opportunities that could deliver pragmatic value to partners and also yield publishable scientific knowledge.
As a Faculty Fellow, Matias is redesigning the course to make it more relevant to Cornell students and developing the networks he needs to create a course that productively fits into Cornell’s learning structures. He is also exploring effective ways to evaluate the course.
