On November 21st and 22nd, BeNA will host Prof. Eric Bettinger in an event that marks the comeback of our traditional BeNA lecture series—this time, in closest cooperation with the Federal Institute for Population Research (BiB).
As one of the world’s leading education economists and a distinguished Professor of Economics at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education, Eric has contributed immensely to the field of education. He has led several influential studies, including the H&R Block FAFSA experiment, and his work has been widely recognized and published in leading academic journals.
This year’s lecture series has the topic „The Aspiration of Randomization and the Perils Attached” and will focus on conducting randomized experiments and the economics of education. Attendees can attend three lectures and one research talk, which will provide in-depth insight into Eric’s work. Moreover, attendees can also book office hours with Eric.
The event starts at noon on November 21st with a lunch and a seminar talk on „Skills vs. Signaling: Evidence from Fake Diplomas in Brazil.„ This will be followed by the first part of a three-part lecture series and a dinner. The lecture series continues on Wednesday, November 22nd, until the afternoon. Throughout the two days, attendees will also be able to sign up for office hours with Eric.
You can find the program here.
