Hi guys, here are my UGM updates from the UGM held on the 3rd of February 2020 :)
Computing Skills for all Courses.
At the UGM on the 3rd of February, the Students’ Union were mandated to “lobby the university to provide computing courses for all students”. Specifically, “these should be made credited for students to take as electives, or on top of their course where no free electives are available”, and they “should be made freely available to all students”.
To explore the possibility of this, I will be meeting with the director of KIITE Rafe Hallet, the Learning Technology Manager Matt Street, and Learning Technologist Karl Gimblett later this week and I hope to get a more substantial update to you all as soon as possible afterwards.
