Polytechnic’s new IT course aims to teach computer science by ‘learning by doing’
Students at the University of Technology, Sydney have created a new course that aims to help students “learn by doing”.
Polytechnics new IT Courses is a new program that is being designed to train students to “build, manage, and design” software.
Polytechnies student and entrepreneur, Sarah Hockett, said the course is aimed at “making the most of the skills that come from studying computer science”.
She said it was “designed to build the skills needed for a professional job in the tech industry”.
“We’re trying to build a career, but we’re also teaching people how to learn by doing,” Ms Hocketts said.
We’re doing it in a way that’s a little bit more hands-on, which I think is going to really help the students to learn a lot more.””
I think what we’ve done is create a way to teach people to make software, which is a skill that I think can really change the way the world does business.”

“The thing is, you need to have some kind of a career plan in order to do that.”
I’ve been working as a web developer, and I’ve been doing this for about three years now.
“So I think it’s really important that we’ve got some kind, solid career plan that we can get to, because I think if you don’t have a plan, it’s impossible to make that transition.”

Ms Hocksett said she was excited about the opportunity to create a course “that will help students learn by making”.
“I’ve really enjoyed working with the government and with the universities to make sure that this course is in the best interest of students and that we’re making it the best it can be,” she said.
The course aims for the students of the university to “use their computing skills to build, manage and design software”.
“The whole aim of the course will be to provide an introduction to the skills of building software that people are looking for,” Ms Williams said.
Polytechs new course has been launched to help improve the IT industry.
The courses aims to “provide a practical introduction to building software in the IT sector, including a range of practical and practical-to-use skills such as programming, C#, Java, PHP, CSS, HTML, and more.”
Students will be able to create their own “tutorials” that are available for other students to view.
The program aims to be completed by the end of 2020.

Students have created Polytechnist’s new course to help the “digital economy” to grow.
Ms Williams is hoping the course “will make learning more effective”.
“It will make it a lot easier to get that data, it will make the data more relevant, it’ll make it more accessible to more people,” she explained.
The school has received an “excellent” rating from the Australian IT and Technology Council (ATTC) and will launch the course in October.
Students will have access to “expert and hands-off support”.
