What is a "Democratic Experiment"?

Chris Ansell
2012 Contemporary Pragmatism  
The paper then suggests that a more compatible conception of experimentalism might be found in recent work on design experiments.  ...  Starting with Donald Campbell's argument in favor of an experimenting society, the paper critically examines whether randomized controlled experiments should be the gold standard for democratic experimentalism  ...  Science is traditionally the domain of specially trained experts using specialized techniques to strategically manipulate experimental conditions.  ...

Experiments as Code: A Concept for Reproducible, Auditable, Debuggable, Reusable, Scalable Experiments [article]

Leonel Aguilar, Michal Gath-Morad, Jascha Grübel, Jasper Ermatinger, Hantao Zhao, Stefan Wehrli, Robert W. Sumner, Ce Zhang, Dirk Helbing, Christoph Hölscher
2022 arXiv   pre-print
A common concern in experimental research is the auditability and reproducibility of experiments.  ...  Experiments are usually designed, provisioned, managed, and analyzed by diverse teams of specialists (e.g., researchers, technicians and engineers) and may require many resources (e.g. cloud infrastructure  ...  The design-implementation-link problem for novices is addressed with prefabs but experts are required to create new solutions.  ...

Supporting the creation of hybrid museum experiences

Boriana Koleva, Stefan Rennick Egglestone, Holger Schnädelbach, Kevin Glover, Chris Greenhalgh, Tom Rodden, Martyn Dade-Robertson
2009 Proceedings of the 27th international conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI 09  
We present the iterative development of the tool through a user centred design process and demonstrate its use by domain experts to realise two distinct hybrid exhibits.  ...  The process of design and refinement of the tool highlights the need to adopt an experience oriented approach allowing authors to think in terms of the physical and digital "things" that comprise a hybrid  ...  The concept was validated through a workshop with ten domain experts where the focus was on exploring the breadth of possibilities offered by the tool.  ...
