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.
