OA7511 course approach

  • This course is a combination of:
    • short presentations,
    • labs run individually,
    • case studies (by groups of two students),
    • team works (by groups of four students),
    • discussions.
  • For each topic addressed, the following three types of situations are reviewed:
    • simple situations where common sense is key,
    • intermediate situations where management of human aspects is essentials,
    • complex situations where management of human aspects has to be supplemented with adequate tools and techniques.
  • This course is an opportunity for students to review cases, but also to create their own cases.
