a note from the course designer
the "flipped classroom"
this course follows a "flipped classroom" model.
each week, you'll receive a content module that you will work through on your own time. you'll get articles to read, videos to watch, and short exercises to complete. each module is designed to take 45-60 minutes to complete.
during our live sessions, we'll work together to apply the module content to a case study. our goal is to put what we learned into practice right away.
your instructor is available during the live sessions to answer questions, give feedback, and to facilitate class discussion. we are also available in between sessions via slack.
let's recap, each week you'll:
get a content module to review on your own.
apply what you learned to an interactive case-study in an instructor-led live session.

“this course would be valuable for anyone who makes products. it’s a useful way to make sense of what can be a messy landscape while trying to understand what to work on first.”
"very specific and strategic advice in how to do product well. i feel like i learned and practiced a set of skills i can transfer to any product job. really excited to put some of this information to use at my day job."
“the content was clear and broken down into digestible parts with good examples. the live sessions brought everything to life and it suddenly felt much more clear. i feel i can go away and have a go at this with my team.”
