Acerca de este curso

Dentro de la práctica educativa y clínica, las neurociencias y la psicología cognitiva son ejes fundamentales en la comprensión del comportamiento humano. Estas disciplinas aportan no solo modelos explicativos desde las ciencias básicas sino también desde su perspectiva aplicada. Teniendo en cuenta lo anterior, se pretende generar un espacio para comprender cómo el ser humano desarrolla y adquiere las habilidades de lectura y escritura así como las dificultades más comunes en su adquisición, desde una perspectiva neuropsicológica y cognitiva. Esto, con el fin de ofrecer pautas para identificar cuándo un niño presenta alguna o varias de estas dificultades y qué hacer para ayudarlo en su correcta apropiación.

You’re acquainted with your DNA, but did you know that your cells synthesize enough DNA during your lifetime to stretch a lightyear in length? How does the cellular machinery accomplish such a feat without making more mistakes than you can survive? Why isn’t the incidence of cancer even higher than it is? And, if the DNA in each and every cell is two meters long, how is this genetic material compacted to fit inside the cell nucleus without becoming a tangled mess?
 
Are you ready to go beyond the “what" of scientific information presented in textbooks and explore how scientists deduce the details of these molecular models?
 
Take a behind-the-scenes look at modern molecular genetics, from the classic experimental events that identified the proteins involved in DNA replication and repair to cutting-edge assays that apply the power of genome sequencing. Do you feel confident in your ability to design molecular biology experiments and interpret data from them? We've designed the problems in this course to build your experimental design and data analysis skills.
 
Let’s explore the limits of our current knowledge about the replication machinery and pathways that protect the fidelity of DNA synthesis. If you are up for the challenge, join us in 7.28.1x Molecular Biology: DNA Replication and Repair.

The ultimate success of products and services depends on your ability to understand the wishes, motivations and experiences of your customers. Customer research (also called user research or design research), e.g., contextmapping, can supply user insights, but companies have difficulty in translating these insights into new propositions. This course is about getting them to work in your organization.

This professional education course is an advanced introduction for managers and consultants in design, innovation and marketing who would like to learn how qualitative user research can support their business.

The course is given by TU Delft’s leading scholars and experts in the field of industrial design, who developed the now world-standard “context mapping” method, in which user experience informs design and the creation of elegant solutions to complex problems.

It will equip you with an in-depth understanding of the value of qualitative user experience research; of the insights it can develop into the needs of users, and of how can these insights support design processes and product strategy.

The course structure is case-based and enables you to learn from real-world challenges of companies that utilize user research in their product or service design. In addition, the course includes practical assignments and discussions about cases within the community; and feedback given by peers and content experts. You will also have the opportunity to network and interact with other professionals who deal with the same challenges on a daily basis.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will earn a Certificate and 1.5 CEUs.

Too often modern cities and suburbs are disorganized places where most new development makes daily life less pleasant, creates more traffic congestion, and contributes to climate change. This trend has to change; and our course is going to show you how.

Ecodesign means integrating planning, urban design and the conservation of natural systems to produce a sustainable built and natural environment. Ecodesign can be implemented through normal business practices and the kinds of capital programs and regulations already in use in most communities. We will show you how ecodesign has already been used for exceptional projects in many cities and suburbs—from Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm to False Creek North in Vancouver to Battery Park City in Manhattan, as well as many smaller-scale examples that can be adopted in any community. Cities and suburbs built according to ecodesign principles can and should become normal, instead of just a few special examples, transforming urban development into desirable, lower-carbon, compact and walkable communities and business centers.

As this course describes specific solutions to the vexing urban challenges we all face, course participants can see how these ideas might be applied in their own area. Participants will learn the conceptual framework of ecodesign, see many real, successful examples, and come to understand the tools, processes, and techniques for policy development and implementation.

Ecodesign thinking is relevant to anyone who has a part in shaping or influencing the future of cities and suburbs – citizens, students, designers, public officials, and politicians. At the conclusion of the course participants will have the tools and strategies necessary to advocate policies and projects for a neighbourhood or urban district using the ecodesign framework.

The design of the information flow section describes how firms communicate with suppliers (procurement, risk contracts), internal resources (production planning, bills of materials, material requirements planning), and customers (Sales & Operations Planning and other collaboration based processes). In the last section, we introduce performance metric design and organizational design within the supply chain organization focusing mainly on the centralize/decentralize decision.

The main topic areas we will focus on in this course are:

  • Supply Chain Network Design
  • Supply Chain Finance
  • Supplier Management
  • Production and Demand Planning
  • Process and Organizational Design

This course is indispensable if you’re considering a supply chain management career and, specifically, the positions of Supply Chain Analyst, Operations Manager, or Logistics Coordinator.
