Improvement Science in Education

Improvement Science in Education With roots in industry and in health care, improvement science is a disciplined approach to educational innovation that supports teachers, leaders, and researchers in collaborating to solve specific problems of practice. Improvement science brings discipline and methods to different logics of innovation by integrating: Problem analysis Use of research Development of solutions Measurement of processes and outcomes Rapid refinement through plan-do-study-act cycles. For teachers, school leaders, and system leaders, improvement science moves educational innovation out of the realm of “fad” and into the realm of research-based, evidence-driven continuous improvement, with the goal of increasing the effectiveness of educational practice. That, in turn, will support schools and systems in responding to calls to improve opportunities to learn and student performance and calls to reduce achievement gaps by improving the day-to-day work students, teachers, and leaders. In this introduction to improvement science, developed in collaboration with the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, learners will explore: Problem-specific and user-centered design and analysis Differences in implementation and outcomes as resources for improvement Improving systems to improve practice Driving improvement through measurement, evidence, and disciplined inquiry This course is part of the Leading Educational Innovation and Improvement MicroMasters Program offered by MichiganX.

Differential Equations: Linear Algebra and NxN Systems of Differential Equations

Differential Equations: Linear Algebra and NxN Systems of Differential Equations Differential equations are the mathematical language we use to describe the world around us. Most phenomena can be modeled not by single differential equations, but by systems of interacting differential equations.  These systems may consist of many equations. In this course, we will learn how to use linear algebra to solve systems of more than 2 differential equations. We will also learn to use MATLAB to assist us.We will use systems of equations and matrices to explore: The original page ranking systems used by Google, Balancing chemical reaction equations, Tuned mass dampers and other coupled oscillators, Three or more species competing for resources in an ecosystem, The trajectory of a rider on a zipline. The five modules in this series are being offered as an XSeries on edX. Please visit the Differential Equations XSeries Program Page to learn more and to enroll in the modules.*Zipline photo by teanitiki on Flickr (CC BY-SA 2.0)

Wage Work for Women Citizens: 1870-1920

Wage Work for Women Citizens: 1870-1920 As we see American women coming into positions of economic and political influence, we start to wonder: why now? The Women Have Always Worked MOOC, offered in four parts, explores the history of women in America and introduces students to historians’ work to uncover the place of women and gender in America’s past. Part two of this series departs from the Civil War, examining how gender shaped women's work outside the home in the late 19th century and how gender influenced the shape of the labor force. We will explore simultaneous efforts to affirm domesticity and provide women with paths to independence during this period, and will uncover how the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the Constitution impacted women’s political organizing and participation.The lives of women in the garment industry at the turn of the 20th century, and their involvement in unions, consumer's leagues, and coalitions, take center stage as we work to understand how women made efforts to improve the lives of industrial workers. Using an Intersectional approach, we demonstrate how women with different interests and identities formed alliances around legal and social causes in the early 20th Century, and how this culminated in women's fight for the vote in the early 20th century.

IoT Sensors and Devices

IoT Sensors and Devices The Internet of Things (IoT) is expanding at a rapid rate, and it is becoming increasingly important for professionals to understand what it is, how it works, and how to harness its power to improve your business. This course is for practical learners who want to explore and interact with the IoT bridge between the cyber- and physical worlds, in order to create efficiencies or solve business problems. In this course, you will learn about the ‘things’ that get connected in the Internet of Things to sense and interact with the real world environment – from something as simple as a smoke detector to a robotic arm in manufacturing. If we consider the IoT as giving the internet the ability to feel and respond, this course is about the devices that feel and the devices that respond. We will look at IoT sensors, actuators and intermediary devices that connect things to the internet, as well as electronics and systems, both of which underpin how the Internet of Things works and what it is designed to do.

Intro to Traffic Flow Modeling and Intelligent Transport Systems

Intro to Traffic Flow Modeling and Intelligent Transport Systems Travelers in large cities experience significant congestion during their everyday trips. Expanding roads and infrastructure is not a long-lasting remedy to urban congestion. This course will focus on understanding traffic congestion and will explore ways to improve mobility through advanced traffic management schemes. As we all experience, congestion is a highly complex process without a single explanation. An interesting question is: “Can we describe these complex interactions with simple and elegant ways? “ The course will introduce the fundamentals of traffic flow theory and will describe different traffic flow models in micro- and macroscopic level. Network-level aggregated modeling and control approaches are introduced based on the concept of the Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD). Advanced traffic management schemes (such as adaptive traffic signal control, ramp metering, variable speed limits) are discussed. User equilibrium analysis is introduced through applications of route and departure time choices. Relative reading material, exercises and real data sets are provided.

AWS Developer: Building on AWS

AWS Developer: Building on AWS In this course, part of the AWS Developer Series, you will develop and deploy applications on the AWS platform. Throughout the course, working in Python on Linux, you will develop a web application building upon your developer skills and using AWS services and tools. Your AWS instructors will guide you through getting started with AWS, creating an account, and installing SDKs. Throughout the course, we will use hands-on exercises to build out a web application. You will use both the Amazon EC2 and AWS Lambda compute services, as well as learn about object stores by saving and accessing images and video in Amazon S3. You will use Amazon Rekognition to analyze images and video. Collected data will be managed using the Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS). You will refactor your application along the way, increase availability using load balancing, and improve performance and durability using messaging and queuing with the AWS SNS messaging service and Amazon SQS queuing service.  Throughout the class, your instructors will introduce you to general AWS concepts such as Regions, Availability Zones, Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs), and Security Groups. You will use the AWS service APIs programmatically via AWS SDKs, the AWS CLI, and the AWS Cloud9 Integrated Development Environment (IDE).  Class discussions will provide an opportunity for you to interact with fellow students as well as AWS training staff.
