Minor content

The minor Creative Programming for Non-IT Students uses online teaching materials from Harvard University. The assignments are small programming assignments that you complete in an online environment. They are immediately automatically tested and checked for you.
But please note: this is not a correspondence course; it is full-time education. Every week you and your own group have (online) meetings, lectures and activities. So you follow a normal program, but the school building is online (Discord and Blackboard).
Everything in this minor revolves around programming with Python and SQL (for databases). You complete assignments individually or together with others that become more extensive and complex every week. This starts with the classic “Hello World” and ends with applications that you would not have thought possible at the start!
 

After the first eight weeks you can choose what you want to delve into: Websites, Apps, Data or Artficial Intelligence. You have a major say in what you want to develop and learn.
What comes along a few times is the Online Scavenger Hunt: a Real-Life 

Hunt for answers where you use all kinds of real-life techniques and sources. The results and methods and resources used are added to the portfolio and are therefore part of the final work.
 

The final work is a portfolio with elaborations of assignments and your own project. You come up with that project yourself, in consultation with the teacher, and create it yourself. Final projects have been created that are market worthy!
 

This minor is offered by the study program computer science.

 

Structure of the minor

The minor covers 840 SBU = 30 EC. Within this module, work is done on competences related to the analysis, design and realization of applications. This is in line with the competences as described in the Dutch HBO-I domain. We work individually and in groups. Lessons and studio are completely online.
 

This minor also focuses on personal learning style and development within this field. Questions such as: How did you learn and how can you relate what you learned to your own study and field?
The minor is completely online and all teaching materials are also offered online. Almost all teaching materials are in English. Several times a week, also at different times, you have meetings and other activities. This is a fairly full and full-time program (unsuitable for part-time students) and cannot be combined with internships or other study obligations.
