Scientific American and NYU-Poly have partnered to create interactive and engaging online short courses in science and technology, targeted at mid-career professionals. We have harnessed the combined pedagogical and real world expertise of both Scientific American’s authors and NYU’s educators to provide you with world-class instruction on important science and technology topics.
The format of the courses will be completely virtual and will include developed, interactive lectures and “live” Q&A sessions delivered through a webinar system. Students will be able to review and interact with the prerecorded lectures and later will be able to connect with the instructor directly during the Q&A session.
Registration opens mid/late December for courses starting March 2014.
