Welcome to the mini-course Applied Econometrics for Spatial Economics. I hope you will enjoy the course. Please read this course manual very carefully.
I hope to see you all in class,
1) Course structure and online teaching
This course will be taught entirely online. We will have sessions from 09:00 - 10:30 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. In each session we will watch knowledge clips on Zoom (please click on this link). Make sure that you have downloaded Zoom and that you have created an account. The password to access those meetings is 750436 .
In these sessions there is then room to ask live questions (either via chat or camera). Furthermore, after each clip we will discuss applications and undertake exercises using Mentimeter in order for you to better understand the materials.
Attendance to the interactive sessions is highly recommended. If you attend, there is a Camera-On policy, implying that you always should put on your webcam. The sessions will not be recorded because of privacy issues, but the Mentimeter slides will be put on Canvas afterwards.
