Innovation Co-Lab Training

A girl ready for some classes

Our goal is to empower the Duke Community to create and innovate, and that sometimes starts with learning new skills.  We offer classes in a variety of tech topics, from web design to programming to arts and fabrication.  Courses are organized into tracks where students can string together several workshops to get a deep dive in a topic, or just pick a la carte to take the courses that most interest you.

Check out our calendar below to see our class schedule, or browse our different tracks to craft your own personal curriculum.
 
Note that for the Fall 2020, most classes will be offered remotely via Zoom.  See the individual class info for full details.
