Organized by EGAP in association with Universidad de los Andes
April 8-12, 2019 Bogotá, Colombia
EGAP held a Learning Days workshop for principal investigators (PIs) in Latin America. This five-day event aimed to spread the concepts and tools of experimental methodology for social science research. The workshop covered sessions on key aspects in the design of experimental impact evaluations, presentations of experimental research, statistical exercises (with and without statistical software), and individual advisory sessions for participants to work on their own research designs. Key topics included causal inference, hypothesis testing, randomization, power, average treatment effects, non-compliance, and more.
Organization: This event is organized by Maarten Voors (Wageningen University, EGAP Trainings Director) and Andrés Moya (Universidad de los Andes). Workshop instructors included:
Jake Bowers (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, EGAP Methods Director)
Natalia Garbiras Díaz (University of California, Berkeley)
