Ethics of Randomized Evaluations — Evaluating Social Programs J-PAL Webinar Series

Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at 11:00am to 12:30pm

Virtual Event

This session will discuss the framework researchers use when thinking about ethics in study design and implementation, and how to apply that framework in various real-world examples.

While our in-person course in Cambridge has been postponed indefinitely due to the Coronavirus pandemic, J-PAL is excited to offer this free webinar series during the originally scheduled course dates. Join us daily from 11am-12:30pm EDT for this week-long webinar training series on Evaluating Social Programs. Throughout the week, these webinars will provide an introduction to why and how randomized evaluations can be used to rigorously measure social impact. 

The interactive sessions will combine lectures by J-PAL-affiliated professors and senior J-PAL staff with case study breakout sessions led by our training team. While we strongly encourage participants to commit to attending all five sessions to gain a comprehensive overview of randomized evaluations, participants can register for any combination of the sessions throughout the week.
