UVic is a partner of ASPIRE – a program designed to help post-secondary students to transition successfully from school to the workplace. You're invited to participate in ASPIRE's latest online initiative, The ASPIRE Edge – a three-tier simulation designed to help students to build “work-ready” skills that employers value the most.
Through learning activities in a financial services environment, you have the opportunity to gain noticeable improvements in the following areas: communication, problem-solving, collaboration, resiliency and data acumen.
ASPIRE just released the second tier of the program. In this second tier, you will take a deep dive into problem-solving and critical thinking, while building teamwork skills. You will learn how to:
Deal with conflict
Have difficult conversations
Extract meaning from data
Build workplace relationships
...and so much more!
I encourage you to enroll in The ASPIRE Edge program today to take advantage of this invaluable learning opportunity.
To sign up, simply visit aspirefs.ca/the-edge/.
Dear Computer Science students,
A brief note on the COVID-19 impact on classes, learning, and course-completion. We all are actively working and discussing ways to find the correct balance between meeting the learning objectives of students, and at the same time maintaining safety.
From time to time, please ensure you to check the official UVic information on COVID-19 here: https://www.uvic.ca/covid-19/
The Computer Science Department is discussing alternative ways/arrangements for students to meet their learning objectives in various courses. Since each course is unique, different methods may be used by course instructors to make these alternative arrangements possible. For example, we are considering things like (but not limited to): alternative assignments, digital file submissions, online tests or online exams via conneX or coursespaces, or other methods. Please note: given these unexpected circumstances, in some cases, there may be deviation from the original course outline.
You will be hearing from your course instructors (and/or the Department or University), as information is available.
Chair, Computer Science
