Training Is At Its Core

As we embark on this final quarter of 2020, there are countless lessons to be learned from one of the most tumultuous, trying, and troubled years of our lives – by anyone’s standards. There’s good reason to hope for a slow and steady recovery (economic, public health, global morale) through 2021, but in the meantime, gleaning some wisdom from the previous three quarters seems a worthy exercise.

2020 proved that business environments can change unexpectedly and are less in our control than we might like to think. 2020 rewrote the rules of the game, forcing all players to reinvent aspects of themselves and giving competitive advantages to those who adapted fastest. It also opened opportunities for brand new players who saw emerging market gaps and jumped in to fill them.

Even at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, companies started scrapping their 2020

Harvard is piloting a new teaching fellow training focused on diversity, inclusion, and belonging in two Computer Science courses this fall.

The Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning; the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences’s Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging; and the Computer Science department created the training. It has debuted in Computer Science 121: “Introduction to Theoretical Computer Science” and Computer Science 61: “Systems Programming and Machine Organization.”

The training is composed of two parts, according to Nari G. Johnson ’21, a member of the Harvard Women in Computer Science Advocacy Council and organizer of the program. An asynchronous component on Canvas invites participants to read about diversity, inclusion, and belonging at SEAS. A second component include live discussions, role playing, and personal reflections.

CS 121 teaching fellows and instructors completed their live synchronous training last week in a session led by SEAS Assistant Director of Diversity,

Co-Founder and COO at VR Vision Inc an immersive technology group that is developing virtual and augmented reality solutions for the future.

When 2020 started, no one could predict the pandemic would envelop the world for months after. In fact, here we are nearing the end of the year, and Covid-19 is still very much around, wreaking havoc on world markets and healthcare systems. During this period, many businesses are being forced to pivot and change, from wearing masks to implementing mandatory work-from-home policies. To put it succinctly, it doesn’t show any signs of changing anytime soon. One area that many are looking at with enterprise training is how virtual reality (VR) is impacting businesses and making training safer and more immersive at the same time.

VR is nothing new and has been prevalent in our society for almost half a decade now. Still, only in the past few

The job market may have taken a sharp right turn in the past few months, but even amidst all the changes happening in the workforce, one thing remains constant: Coding is a lucrative and in-demand skill. 

Programmers can command hefty six-figure salaries some even as starting salaries and the demand for these roles has increased quite dramatically in the past year, with growth for positions such as blockchain engineers and security engineers rising over 100%. The moral of the story here is that even if you have yet to touch a line of code, now is as good of a time as any to bust into the industry. 

As a starting point, we’d recommend taking the classes in The 2020 Premium Learn To Code Certification Bundle. Not only is this go-at-your-own-pace coding

Non-profit organisation Code for Change is offering high school students the opportunity to get experience with front-end web development and coding. 

The free-to-use training platform works using CodeJIKA programme. It has been used in over 250 schools since its launch in 2017. 

“Our goal is to build a vibrant eco-system of student-run coding clubs in secondary schools throughout Africa,” said the company on its website. 

Code for Change has major investment from key partners including Google, HKLM and Adobe which all make offering this key skill feature easier. 

South Africa’s education is attempting to reform to meet new world standards which include students learning to code earlier in their schooling career.

CodeJIKA teaches foundational coding, web development, and computer science skills, specifically with schools and communities that are

Why Do We Need Computer Training?

May 4, 2020 | computer | No Comments

The worldwide market for technical-level computer training is nearly $30 billion strong, and this figure includes not only IT department training but large numbers of general staff members who take extensive computer classes as well.

The reason for computer training being such “big business” is no secret: almost any employer in any industry will tell you that the most important skills they are looking for in today’s economy are technology skills. And computer skills, in one way or another, touch upon almost all aspects of modern technology.

The Benefits of Cutting-edge Computer Training

Most people today are at least “computer literate,” and most high schools/colleges offer at least a few basic computer classes. The fact is, however, that the kinds of technical skills often needed in a business situation simply weren’t part of the curriculum in most people’s college majors.

This means additional training will be needed for those … Read More
