Nanoclasses @ Antwerp Management School

Antwerp Management School, in conjunction with The Standish Group, is offering a first set of “nanoclasses” in January 2018. A nanoclass is a 90-minute, single-subject workshop that includes lecture, follow-up exercises, and activities. This set of nanoclasses focuses on engaging business teams in digital transformation projects.   Each will begin with a half-hour lecture including a Q&A session, followed by a 30-minute team exercise culminating in result presentations, and then an open networking session featuring access to professors. These nanoclasses are designed for both academic credit and life-long learning. Life-long learners will receive a certificate for each nanoclass.  Students will receive academic credits (European Credit Transfers or ECTs) based on our “nanopoint” system. A single class with a minimum-option follow-up activity will merit 300 nanopoints.  Students will receive one ECT for every 2,600 nanopoints and will also have the option of choosing follow-up activities that garner more points.
