A NOTE FROM THE COURSE DESIGNER

THE "FLIPPED CLASSROOM"

This course follows a "flipped classroom" model.

Each week, you'll receive a content module that you will work through on your own time. You'll get articles to read, videos to watch, and short exercises to complete. Each module is designed to take 45-60 minutes to complete.

During our live sessions, we'll work together to apply the module content to a case study. Our goal is to put what we learned into practice right away.

Your instructor is available during the live sessions to answer questions, give feedback, and to facilitate class discussion. We are also available in between sessions via Slack.

Let's recap, each week you'll:

  • Get a content module to review on your own.
  • Apply what you learned to an interactive case-study in an instructor-led live session.
  • Get support from our engaged course community.

Frequently Asked Questions 

When does the course meet?

We'll meet live for 90-minutes each week. During week one, we'll review how the course works and make sure you are setup for success. During weeks 2-5, we'll meet for 90 minutes where we'll briefly review the week's instructional content and then dive right into practice. In between course sessions, you'll have about 45-60 minutes of homework to complete on your own. We offer this course several times throughout the year. For specific course dates, see the "Upcoming Cohorts" section above.

What if I can't attend one of the class sessions?

This course is designed to get you hands-on practice. We strongly recommend that you sign up for dates that best fit your schedule. However, if something comes up and you are not able to attend a session, you'll still get value out of the remaining sessions.

How long do I have access to the instructional content?

You'll have access to all of the instructional content for 3-months starting from the course kick-off.
