There are two common biases in teaching. One is too “academic” (i.e., based too much on theory) and the other is too “anecdotal” (i.e., based too much on stories and cases). In this talk, I will share my experience of how to overcome these biases, and how to make teaching both fun and functional to business students.

Yntema Professor of Behavioral Science and Marketing at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. A world-leading expert on behavioral decision theory, Hsee does research in areas ranging from marketing (consumer behavior), management (organizational behavior) and behavioral economics (behavioral game theory), to social and cognitive psychology, happiness, and cross-cultural research. Hsee’s research is widely recognized and cited, with a Google Scholar citation count of over 22,000 (as of 12/2021).
