Course Details:

The course begins on September 14 and concludes with the last assignment due October 16, 2020. Weekly feedback between the instructors and students, along with online discussions with fellow classmates provide each student with an interactive and enriching learning environment.

This updated course offers new material and three live online group discussions with the instructors via Zoom. These calls will take place on March 1, March 15, April 2 at 5:30 pm CET. The conversations will be recorded for students who can't attend the live sessions.
