Coordinator’s Word

This course equips students with the knowledge to understand the Covid pandemic in all dimensions: better understanding of the concept of “model”, manipulating the data, acting in autonomy, exercising their critical thinking and countering fake news. 

There are no prerequisites except a good level in English. It may bee tough if you really don’t have any mathematical background, but we have designed 2 pedagogical tracks to address this specific question. You will learn a lot about Covid-19 though you will not become an expert in this disease.

What we expect is that you be confident in the soundness of your knowledge because you will assimilate a better comprehension of the scientific methods. Likewise, you will better understand how to work within the framework of a model, manipulate relevant data, strengthen autonomie and reinforce your critical thinking through a transdisciplinary approach.
