Master Classes and Innovation in Teaching
We focus on developing hard skills–for example, strong resume bullet points, such as causal modeling, hypothesis testing and machine learning–and soft skills–for example, design thinking and problem solving in teams.
You learn to use new digital and cloud-based tools, such as biometric sensors, Microsoft’s Azure Machine Learning Studio, and app-based rapid prototyping toolkits.
