An essential goal of education is to make a student excited about a subject and able to be his or her own teacher. We make sure our students actively engaged from day one, with real-world assignments, usage of raw data, sophisticated training modules and incorporation of soft skills as part of the training process.
Our training programme has been developed keeping in mind the principle of flow as developed by psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and the principles of Deliberate Practice as developed by Prfoessor K. Anders Ericsson. These underlying principles structure our training programme, where each module is designed to challenge the student and increase their understanding of the subject, thereby creating an experience of flow. At the same time, the module is not challenging enough to be frustrating: each module builds on the previous one and the aim is to scaffold learning through a step-by-step process, enabling a clear growth in learning over a longer period of time.
In terms of the curriculum, we cover the entire process of working with Data: data collection, organising the data, modelling the data and data analysis through the latest data science tools. The tools in which we train students include Data Science, Cloud Integration with Azure, Business Intelligence, Big Data, Python, R-programming, Data Visualization through Tableau & Power BI, SQL Server etc.
We use Gamification as the methodology in our training programme. Gaming for learning brings together the element of fun, learning by doing, and the development of metacognitive skills such as identifying and correcting errors and faulty patterns.
Finally, the feedback mechanism is an integral part of the process of Deliberate Practice. The mechanism for constructive feedback is built as an ongoing part of our training programme and will be provided at each stage. The goal of feedback is to facilitate the development of best practices and proactively learn with smaller errors before they turn into big mistakes with serious consequences.
To sum up, if you want to challenge yourself and learn how to be a data scientist who can think for himself or herself, our training programme is for you. If you bring the hard work and commitment, we provide the training that develops you to not just be a professional but also a leader.
