Students are expected to interact with the instructor and other students during this review. The review is followed by a Case-Study workshop where students will be divided up in teams. Each team will be responsible for building a different piece of the Data Vault Model - answering business questions, identifying assumptions, and drawing a Data Vault Model. This is the bulk of this class consisting of a total of 8 hours of learning time. At the end of which, the students will be asked to present to the rest of the class on their findings. The class then completes with a small prep-time for testing, and the administration of the Data Vault certification test.
