Summer Learning

Over the summer I made the conscience decision to take a much needed break.  I had to walk away from a couple of Coursera courses, telling myself it was okay.  I could take them next time around.

I did, however, continue with a course I started earlier called Model Thinking.  It is high level introduction to a variety of models.  I personally enjoyed this course a lot.  It provided a exposure to a variety of models that I never heard of however I could see applications for in my day to day life.  It had some math but nothing that is too difficult to scare people away.  There currently isn’t a text book for the class (which is great for auditory learners like myself) however one is in the works.

What I like most about the course is that it provides me with a set of tools I can work with.  As you can tell from previous posts, I am a big fan of using the right tool for the job and not being a one pony show.  This course was great in that I have lots of different and competing ways of looking at the world.
