About the content

Students and professionals in science, design and technology have to develop and communicate concepts that are often difficult to comprehend for the public, their peers and even themselves.

This communication course will help you enhance your communication and interpersonal skills and provide insight, tips and tricks to make such complex and seemingly unimaginable concepts and ideas imaginable.

After finishing this course you will be more skilled in finding the right visual language to convey your ideas, thoughts and vision. You will be able to illustrate concepts and themes and you will know how to unravel complexity by using diagrams and schemes.

This is a self-paced course. This means that you can freely plan when and how fast you would like to do the course challenges: within the period of the course duration, you can decide when you are really ready to submit your course portfolio for an online peer review.

The course team also offers the self-paced MOOC ‘Models in Architecture’ and both courses come with a unique magazine called ‘MIAMIAM’ (Monthly Image Ability & Models in Architecture Magazine). This magazine will present the course feedback and it will report on notable results and insights from both MOOCs and related TU-Delft campus education.
With both courses, we invite you to take new steps to explore your own creativity. The forum discussions, the possibilities to share and see each other’s work and the feedback in the magazine make it easier to work towards a course certificate.
Both courses are a good preparation for further creative studies and could guide you in a career change towards creative industries.
