It's not only computer scientists who can benefit from the skills and competencies developed in coding instruction. More than creating effective programming; coding encourages the development of grit, problem-solving skills and computational thinking. It is a skill whose rewards and applications only seem to grow.
Digital Flagship is committed to providing opportunities for all at Ohio State to engage with and benefit from coding curriculum. This means creating Swift coding curriculum that allows students to learn coding skills without increasing cost or time to degree.
We are currently working with groups across the university to develop this curriculum and plan to launch preliminary online coding courses in fall of 2019.
In the interim, we will be offering workshops for students and instructors interested in coding and iPad instruction. We have also included a few user-friendly resources that are free to all users who want to get started with coding.
Interested in learning more about coding? Want to improve your world, your career prospects and your community through thoughtful digital design?
We will be offering workshops for students, faculty and staff covering topics from basic coding to building a programming environment with Xcode and teaching and learning with iPad in mind. All workshops will be available both in-person and digitally.
Additional workshop information will be made available in the coming months. To be notified when new coding opportunities come available, sign up for our email updates and mark 'coding' as your interest.
The Digital Flagship team is currently developing a preliminary set of no-cost coding curriculum, which will be available for Ohio State students, faculty and staff in 2019. In the meantime, we've included some of our favorite coding resources below. We suggest those who are entirely new to coding start with Swift Playgrounds before moving on to the more quickly-paced resources in the second row.
