Keep Learning with Dottie
Hi there, Hokies! Dottie here!
I know this is a hard time and many of us are running out of things to do to keep our minds going. A ton of websites and universities are offering free online courses while in quarantine! This is the perfect time to learn something new or explore a topic that you have never had the time to learn about before. I've done some research and found a couple of courses I thought looked interesting and wanted to share them with you. Keep reading to see my suggestions!
1. Moralities of Everyday Life offered by Yale University
"We’ll discuss some clever studies that show how our moral behavior is powerfully influenced—often at the unconscious level—by the situations that we find ourselves in."
2. Introduction to Negotiation offered by Yale University
"This course will help you be a better negotiator. Unlike many negotiation courses, we develop a framework for analyzing and shaping negotiations."
3. Seeing Through Photographs offered by MoMA
"This course aims to address the gap between seeing and truly understanding photographs by introducing a diversity of ideas, approaches, and technologies that inform their making."
4. The Science of Well-being offered by Yale University
"In this course you will engage in a series of challenges designed to increase your own happiness and build more productive habits."
5. Management of Fashion and Luxury Companies offered by Bocconi
"Learn how fashion and luxury companies work and understand their brands, products, retail, and communication strategies. Travel through business models, international development, and product categories with industry influent experts."
Coursera is offering hundreds of free courses, so if none of the classes listed interest you, check out their website to find the perfect fit for you. I am going to start "the Science of Well-being" next week and will keep you Hokies updated on how it goes. Until next time, keep safe and keep learning! The website for Coursera is linked below!
