Education

GMDSI offers educational resources to support people with a wide range of modelling skills and experience, including new modellers, people who regulate modelling, stakeholders in model-based decisions, and high-end modellers looking to implement the latest state-of-the-art data assimilation and uncertainty analysis techniques.

We have developed a range of videos to help you deepen your understanding of decision-support modelling, and we are looking forward to hosting training courses on a range of topics, from technical to philosophical. 

We aim to be innovative in our education, and so we are offering ‘home tutoring’ to government and industry employees to help you understand decision-support modelling as it applies to your work and to implement appropriate simulation software. If you are interested in getting your organisation involved, please read more on our home tutoring page.  

Finally, please check back soon as we are continually adding more resources, or sign up to our mailing list at the bottom of this page to be updated about any new developments.
