Teaching

Several illustrations of social dilemmas (and other interdependent games) that can be used in teaching are available on the web. See for some nice examples:

– a youtube video explaining what social dilemmas are: more information

– an interactive demonstration and explanation of the trust game: more information

– an interactive multi-trial demonstration of the prisoner’s dilemma: more information

– an interactive demonstration of the prisoner’s dilemma that allows you to play against different types of players (from gametheory.net): more information

– an interactive multi-trial simulation of the prisoner’s dilemma that also allows you to distinguish between different strategies (such as tit for tat): more information

– several demonstrations on the evolution of cooperation that incorporate multiple strategies in repeated multiplayer settings (from gametheory.net): more information

– a description of several classroom experiments (in this case on experimental economics; including a public goods dilemma) by Charles Holt and Tanga McDaniel: more information
