GTAP Events: Short Courses in Global Trade Analysis

Background

The GTAP Short Course is an intensive training course in the economics of global policy analysis. The five-day, onsite course is supplemented with five online preparatory modules that introduce the data, core economic behaviors, and computational implementation of GTAP. Each preparatory module consists of two hours of online content delivered as lectures and demonstrations, and includes tools for both self-evaluation and for feedback from the instruction team.

The five-day residency course incorporates two phases. The first phase incorporates lectures, discussion, and hands-on lab sessions. The sequence of lectures and labs is designed to prepare students for their first GTAP-based analysis, the focus of the second phase of the residency. In that second phase, students are required to replicate and then extend, or adapt, the GTAP Model to address a policy question using the methods presented in the course. The successful participant will have gained fluency with the GTAP Model code and data base and be prepared to design economic policy experiments for computational analysis.


Objectives
What GTAP Short Course "Graduates" Are Saying...
"Excellent learning environment, teaching and material."

"Good balance between theory and practical lessons!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learned an incredible amount of material in such a short period of time. I look forward to being involved in the GTAP community in the future and using these modelling techniques in my work! Thank you!"

"I really loved the hands-on part of the course; it was a valuable experience and certainly provided a deeper understanding of the difficult and sophisticated linkages of the model."

"The course is very comprehensive and offered an opportunity to be introduced to all aspects of CGE modelling (theory, data, GEMPACK and other)."
