ASU’s Innovation Quarter

ASU’s Innovation Quarter offers free classes that can be taken at home.

Arizona State University is offering five weeks of free virtual programming to engage the community in learning activities covering topics from social justice to cookie decorating. 

Classes are free but not for credit.

The catalog of learning opportunities includes nearly 200 activities, which range from single, 15-minute sessions to courses taking place over multiple weeks. 

Innovation Quarter runs Dec. 7 through Jan. 8.

Innovation Week kicks off the first week of Innovation Quarter and will feature keynote speakers each day. The week takes attendees through the innovation journey—soup to nuts, idea to market; you’ll learn how to develop a plan and pick up new tools and resources.

There are learning sessions for all ages, including K-12 and college students, working professionals, parents and educators. 

A few of the sessions available:

• Networking 101.

•Digital Code Academy (coding camp for K-12 students).

•Virtual Camp Out (a virtual campout with NASA).

• Lessons in Leadership.

•Building Your First Resume.

•Midday Mindfulness.

•Investigative Reporting with Pulitzer Prize winner Len Downie.

Several sessions are live on Zoom, some are asynchronous—able to be accessed at any time—and others are a hybrid model, combining live content with “homework.” There’s also a series of micro-podcasts, a movie club, a book club and a craft session.
