How a new computer science curriculum will transform our universities
A new computer-science curriculum for Canada’s universities is being developed in partnership with the University of Ottawa.
The plan is designed to help students and faculty develop a stronger and more creative way of thinking about learning and learning from others.
The program, which will be formally introduced at the end of the month, will include a “prospective career path and a curriculum of critical thinking,” according to a release from the Ottawa University.
Students will learn about the fundamentals of computer science and how they can use it to solve problems, with the goal of creating their own ideas that can be applied in the workplace.
The aim is to ensure that computer science graduates are prepared to work in the world of science and technology, the release said.
Desmeriais said she’s seen some students in her own department struggle with their work and confidence in their academic abilities after completing the program. “
I think that we can expect a very different way of being a university student.”

“We’re trying to make sure that they are able to engage with students and provide them with the resources that they need,” she said.
The new curriculum is being piloted at two campuses, the Ottawa campus, which is currently home to students, and the University at Ottawa.
A third campus, the Laurentian University of the Arts, is also participating in the program with a similar focus.
“This is about getting students involved, and having them feel like they have a stake in the future of their university,” Desmariais said.
Desmars said the program will have its first class of graduates in early 2019.
The University of Ontario, which also plans to use the curriculum, is aiming to enroll a total of about 2,200 students by the end to 2019.
Desmoiais said the plan is to have the curriculum taught in classrooms of between 10 and 15 students, though she acknowledged the university’s students may be the largest group of students that will be taking the course.
The new course is being led by Professor Paul Côté of the Faculty of Information Science and Engineering at the University. “
You can’t get to that point of just telling them what they need to do.”

He said that while there’s a lot of interest in the course, it’s important to also give it a lot more attention.
“Students are very, very curious to learn from us, and they want to know why this is important to them,” Côtté said.
Students in the class will also be asked to work on an online survey for the curriculum and will be invited to attend a “hands-on workshop” to help with that.
“What we are really trying to do is to provide them in a way that’s really supportive and accessible, so they don’t feel like that they’re not in control of what they’re doing, and that they don.t feel like there’s this burden of being an expert, Côtiè said.
