Preparing the Next Generation of Computer Personnel
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this panel is to explore different techniques and approaches that are currently in use within the tertiary sector to prepare students in the technology industry for the move to working in the industry. A growing demand from employers for soft skills, and from university bodies for positive graduate employment outcomes is leading to a re-imagining of our approach to coursework. Work integrated learning and industry involvement within coursework and assessment will be presented, together with approaches for encouraging students to engage with industry and the development of non-traditional course offerings.
