edX Free English Data Analysis & Statistics Economics & Finance EdX LouvainX Social Sciences

L'analyse de données quantitatives est devenue aujourd'hui une pratique incontournable dans tous les métiers liés aux sciences sociales. Ces analyses sont utilisées pour comprendre des phénomènes économiques et financiers, décrire la nature de la relation entre des personnes, des objets ou des événements, ou encore anticiper les conséquences d’une décision.

Ce cours vous permettra d’acquérir les premiers concepts nécessaires pour construire rigoureusement des modèles économétriques. Il est constitué de leçons construites à partir de cas pratiques originaux interrogeant la vie quotidienne. Mentionnons parmi d’autres:

  • Comment réussir une campagne de financement collaboratif ?
  • Quels sont les déterminants des écarts salariaux entre les hommes et les femmes ?
  • Existe-t-il encore un lien entre l’inflation et le chômage ?
  • Peut-on prédire un changement de niveau de risque sur les marchés financiers ?
  • Existe-t-il un lien entre le niveau de revenu et le sentiment d’être en bonne santé ?
  • Le salaire est-il la seule motivation économique des travailleurs ?
  • Le prix de vente des œuvres de Picasso correspond-il à sa valeur de catalogue ?

Ce cours contient huit leçons. Il permet tout d’abord de comprendre l’étendue et les limites de l’utilisation de l’économétrie en sciences sociales. La formation se poursuit en étudiant le modèle linéaire, tout en insistant sur la manière dont la construction d’un tel modèle permet d'identifier et de quantifier diverses relations entre les données mesurées. Il élabore également les propriétés statistiques de l'estimateur de moindres carrés, permettant ensuite de montrer comment il est possible de vérifier ou de tester des hypothèses économiques en pratique. Des leçons particulières sont consacrées à l’analyse de données fréquemment utilisées dans la pratique de l'économétrie, telles que les variables catégorielles et les séries temporelles.

In this hands-on course, you’ll learn how to perform engineering simulations using a powerful tool from ANSYS, Inc. This is a problem-based course where you’ll learn by doing. The focus will be on understanding what’s under the blackbox so as to move beyond garbage-in, garbage-out. You’ll practice using a common solution approach to problems involving different physics: structural mechanics, fluid dynamics and heat transfer.

We’ll solve textbook examples to understand the fundamental principles of finite-element analysis and computational fluid dynamics. Then we’ll apply these principles to simulate real-world examples in the tool including a bolted rocket assembly and a wind turbine rotor.We’ll discuss current industry practices with a SpaceX engineer. By working through examples in a leading simulation tool that professionals use, you’ll learn to move beyond button pushing and start thinking like an expert.

This course teaches fundamental concepts and tool use in an integrated fashion using the power of online learning. All learners will have access to a free download of ANSYS Student.

Join us to discover why simulations have changed how engineering is done and how you can be a part of this revolution.

Le théâtre classique du 17e siècle passe pour le sommet de l’art du théâtre en France. Ses trois représentants les plus connus, Corneille et Racine pour la tragédie et Molière pour la comédie comptent parmi les plus grands dramaturges européens de tous les temps, et Molière reste l’un des auteurs les plus joués dans le monde.

Pour vous les faire découvrir, nous vous emmènerons dans l’environnement historique, sociologique, culturel et littéraire qui les a vu naître. Nous retracerons ainsi l’histoire du "théâtre moderne" depuis sa naissance au milieu du 16e siècle jusqu’aux plus brillantes années du "siècle de Louis XIV"(2e moitié du 17e siècle).

Nous examinerons ainsi les fondements de l’expression "théâtre classique," les fondements du système qui a vu naître les "règles classiques," les fondements d’un dialogue théâtral qui repose entièrement sur "l’alexandrin classique." Et nous ferons apparaître les tensions créatrices (entre la théorie et la pratique, entre les règles et le refus des règles, entre le texte et le spectacle, entre le classicisme et le baroque, entre la tragédie et l’opéra) qui ont façonné le théâtre de cette période.

Enfin, en vous accompagnant dans la lecture des quelques chefs-d’œuvre qui ont créé une rupture esthétique et marqué les esprits, nous vous ferons pénétrer avec nous dans l’atelier créateur des plus grands dramaturges de l’âge d’or du théâtre français.

Pièces de théâtre à lire: Le Cid et Cinna de Corneille / Les Précieuses ridicules, L’École des femmes et Tartuffe de Molière / Andromaque et Phèdre de Racine.

Ces textes sont tous disponibles en éditions de poche (choisir de préférence "Folio classique” et "Folio Théâtre" ou "Le Livre de poche Classique.") 

Nous vous invitons à découvrir avec nous d’où viennent ces trois auteurs, comment ils se sont construits, comment ils se sont distingués des plus brillants dramaturges de leur temps. Et nous vous montrerons quels sont les ingrédients qui ont permis à leurs œuvres d’avoir été sans cesse lues et jouées jusqu’à aujourd’hui — et cela, alors même que de nombreux éléments-clés (l’obéissance à des "règles" et l’usage du vers dit "alexandrin," en particulier) ont disparu depuis longtemps.

At the core of improving teaching and learning is the need to accurately determine what students have learned as a result of teaching practices. This is a research problem, to which STEM instructors can effectively apply their research skills and knowledge.

In this course, you will learn about the “teaching as research” framework. This framework is a deliberate, systematic, and reflective use of research methods used to develop and implement teaching practices that advance the learning experiences and outcomes of both students and teachers.

Participants will learn about effective teaching strategies and the research that supports them, as well as how to collect and analyze evidence of student learning.

This course is targeted to graduate students and post-doctoral fellows within STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) that are seeking faculty careers at college and university.

The “Teaching as Research” framework is a core idea of The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL), which is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded network of research universities committed to preparing outstanding future faculty in STEM disciplines, with the ultimate goal of improving undergraduate STEM education in the U.S.

Si en el mundo existe tanta agua dulce, 35 millones de km3 para ser exactos… ¿cómo es posible que hoy más de 750 millones de personas no tengan acceso al agua? Al mismo tiempo, el continente Americano cuenta con el 31% de las reservas de agua dulce del mundo. ¿Es posible que los países que conforman América Latina puedan aprovechar esta situación y transformarla en una gran oportunidad?

Si deseas dar respuesta a estas preguntas y otras parecidas, ¡este curso es para ti! Lo que se pretende con el curso es que los participantes reconozcan las amenazas en el acceso a los recursos hídricos en América Latina y el Caribe. A partir de la identificación de los riesgos materializados por vacíos institucionales prevalentes en la región y los impactos adversos del cambio climático y la contaminación, podrás reconocer las amenazas en el acceso a los recursos hídricos en América Latina y el Caribe.

De esta forma, el curso te llevará hacia una reflexión sobre el rol del agua en la sociedad, sus usos y su potencial y, además, te presentará los métodos y herramientas existentes para la asignación de los recursos hídricos disponibles y, así, obtener el máximo beneficio y evitar el despilfarro.
