Micro-courses

This year, we are running three 18-hour (1.5 unit) micro-courses that will unfold through two 3-hour sessions a week between May 24 and June 10. Students may take these micro-courses to fulfill elective credits in their program of study or “out of program”. All micro-courses will be taught bi-modally so that participants may join in-person or virtually. After each week, participants will have small assignments to work on to apply the techniques learned in class.

This year’s micro-course topics include:

  • Introduction to participatory research in inclusive design (in English)
  • Animated Data Visualisation (in English)
  • Introduction to text analysis (in French)
