GTAP Events: Short Courses in Dynamic Global Trade Analysis

Background
This course is intended to introduce users to the Dynamic GTAP Model (GDyn). The course consists of a mixture of online and onsite instruction. The online course lasts seven weeks and introduces the participant to GDyn. The online course is designed for self-paced learning; however, there are five homework assignments which are individually graded. During the one-week onsite course, there is a mix of daily lectures, lab assignments, and informal discussions designed to introduce participants to the basic features of the GDyn Model. These activities culminate in a major application undertaken by small groups and presented on the final day of the course. Groups are assigned an instructor who is intimately familiar with their project to act as a resource person. Our goal is for participants to leave with the capability of conducting and analyzing their own dynamic simulations using the GDyn Model.

Course Objectives Prerequisites
It is expected that participants will have already undertaken the Short Course in Global Trade Analysis at the Center for Global Trade Analysis. In some cases, participants may also be eligible if they have completed a significant piece of analysis using the Dynamic GTAP Model or another, comparable, general equilibrium model. Please contact the Center for Global Trade Analysis for further information. In addition, selected participants are strongly encouraged to go over the refresher material in advance of the Short Course. This section provides background information about the GTAP framework and examples of GDyn applications.
