Skills for Computing is an introductory module, that set’s one up, for said diploma and degree pathway. Students are guided on learning strategies to be able to make the best use of their learning experience. Special emphasis is also directed towards academic writing and the correct way of referencing researched material. The honing of professional presentation skills and how to keep any particular target audience engaged, are exercised to give students the cutting edge both in the academic and professional world. Skills for Computing continues by questioning the degree of one’s thinking and problem-solving abilities. Scholars are exposed to various strategies and conventions about creative and critical thinking in a bid to breach any formed psychological boundaries. The next phase of the module is concerned with data acquisition and analysis, to allow decision-makers to make informed and sound decisions. Arithmetic and Statistical modelling are explored and demonstrated, with the end objective being that of converting data into information.
