SICSA Education Workshop: The Student Role in Shaping Articulation

18/02/2016 7th March 2016

Associate students, joining Edinburgh Napier University in third year can now articulate onto a number of different undergraduate programmes, take part in University coordinated work placement schemes, participate in international exchange visits, and enjoy the broader social activities of the university.  This session will explore the ongoing student and professional stories of the project, as well as the results – successes and failures – achieved over the course of the project and the opportunities for broadening access to Computing Science degrees in years to come.

This event will allow the sharing good practice and knowledge transfer in the area of articulation between computing students, college staff, university staff, support staff, funders and other interested parties. 

The workshop will focus on three distinct streams:

  • student stories – computing students will playing a key role and share their transition experiences;
  • articulation figures and statistics will be examined and the role these routes play in widening participation for Schools of Computing within HEI’s will be examined.
  • the Associate Student project at Edinburgh Napier University will share the successes and pitfalls from their work around articulation within the School of Computing.
