Tech education in CB: what works and what doesn’t?
Everyone has a different experience with their education. Even if they’re attended the same program. Peers working side by side at Cape Breton startups have had different experiences from one another with their educations. Members of this years UIT cohort have had different experiences. Experiences from 5 years ago are different from those now. That trend will continue.
We’ve seen a lot of different things and everyone has an opinion.
StudentCon is a new piece of the UIT curriculum. Following an intense 40 hour workshop with Ian McNeil to learn professional communication skills, the 2017 UIT cohort will be participating in an internal conference covering this subject. All members of the 2017 UIT cohort will be speaking in this conference in roles that they’ve trained for. The conference will be open to a small selection of invited UIT alumni, industry members, friends and family.
