Tools for his professional practice
Build an experimental protocol
Context & objective
Provide agents with tools to:
> Imagine an experimental approach and ensure that it corresponds to a scientific approach
> Plan an experimental protocol by determining the conditions for its implementation so that it meets their expectations
> Concretely implement this protocol and manage an experimental campaign that meets the quality criteria necessary for its scientific exploitation.
Introduction and round table
Module 1: What is a protocol/an experiment? What can I expect from it?
Elements of epistemology: what is science, what is knowledge?
The different types of reasoning: deductive, inductive, hypothetico-deductive
Basics of logic (implications, difference between necessary and sufficient) and useful statistics (null hypothesis)
Search for rupture, incremental search, serendipity
Research and Ethics
Unit 2: How can I build my experience and ensure that it will meet my objectives?
Identification of a problem, the example of the Ishikawa diagram (5M method)
Formulation of a problem: difference between theoretical model, experimental hypothesis and operational hypothesis
Classes of protocols (Blind/ double blind, single dissociation/ double dissociation)
Statistical tests, dimensioning of an experiment
Build your experimental design, notion of experimental plan and controlled and uncontrolled factors, optimize the number of experiments to be carried out while ensuring the reliability/quality of the results
Ethics and regulations
Module 3: How do I manage my experimentation campaign to ensure that it is usable?
Presentation of project management tools (planning, etc.), agile methods, application to planning an experience campaign
Quality and standardization of protocols, SOP.
Archiving/ reproducibility/ ethics: the laboratory notebook and new tools for managing an experimental campaign (Open Science Framework)
How to federate a team and ensure compliance of the work carried out with the initial expectations
