Computer Science

Overview

Faculty of Engineering at the University of New South Wales turned to us to design and build courses which provided an alternative to on-campus lectures, capable of effectively fulfilling learning outcomes with a stark increase in enrolments. Our approach focused on activity-based learning, allowing students to critically think, share and reflect – and be engaged on their learning journey.
