Course Structure

Each course contains four elements:

  1. The Overview Paper introduces the participant to the course topic and provides an explanation of relevancy. It also introduces relevant vocabulary and provides sources for additional reading and exploration.

  2. Each course includes three Core Lessons. Each Core Lesson focuses on one "essential idea" which was introduced in the Overview Paper and represents basic knowledge needed to complete future lessons and tasks in the course. 

  3. Task Modules provide depth to the course by focusing on a specific task that might be assigned to an institutional research office.

  4. Exercises are hands-on application of the material in the Task Modules. Labs always require the use or interpretation of data and use a shared data warehouse provided by AIR.
