Our Integrated Learning Model
For all of our programs, we have developed a unique integrated learning model that optimizes skills training and promotes deep understanding of the material. We based this model on our extensive experience delivering outcome-based training and with the input and insight of the top practitioners and instructors in each field.
The model consists of four crucial elements required for deep learning:
The Data Insights & Visualization Professional Certificate Program is comprised of the following modules:
The Certificate Program Kickoff serves as a crucial introductory event for participants, providing them with a valuable opportunity to connect with their program coach. During this session, participants will not only establish a rapport with their coach but also gain a clear understanding of the desired outcomes aligned with their organization’s goals.
Participants will apply their acquired skills and knowledge to tackle a sample real-world data challenge, allowing them to demonstrate their proficiency in data gathering, visualization, and communication. By working on this project, they will be able to show their abilities and provide useful insights to help achieve business objectives. Participants will complete their journey by providing a comprehensive final presentation to their program coach, cohort and leadership team. This culminating event provides participants with a platform to present their data-driven stories, highlighting the skills and competencies they've acquired in the program.
There are four coaching sessions that are conducted throughout the program. The purpose of these coaching sessions is to review the prior modules, solidify the learning and discuss steps involved in perfecting their capstone project. The coach’s role is to support participants in implementing and adopting the actions discussed during the coaching sessions.
