The course will be conducted as an outcome-based workshop. Participants will learn the methods and concepts through simulation of real-world scenarios, and then practice them with case models and by creating their very own product. Guidance will be provided via live coding and demos in class, followed by group and individual coaching. Besides learning by instruction and experimentation, participants are expected to think and contribute to discussions. They are expected to exhibit attributes such as resourcefulness and resolve to tackle problems.
