You are warmly invited to the inaugural lecture of Prof. Ulf Zölitz:

The Value of Peers in Education

Social interactions among students are an essential part of education and likely represent a major source of learning. This lecture discusses what we currently know about peer effects and introduces a new way to determine the economic value of a peer.

In 2017 he joined the Department of Economics and the Jacobs Center for Productive Youth Development as an Assistant Professor.

The inaugural lecture is public and will take place in the Aula of the University of Zurich (KOL G-201, Raemistrasse 71, 8006 Zurich) on Monday, 17 September, 2018, at 5:00 pm. No reservation is needed.
