We are aiming for an incremental return to campus in accordance with guidelines provided by NSW Health and the Australian Government. Until this time, learning activities and assessments will be planned and scheduled for online delivery where possible, and unit-specific details about face-to-face teaching will be provided on Canvas as the opportunities for face-to-face learning become clear.

Unit of study_

INFO3333: Computing 3 Management

This unit teaches students vital skills for an effective professional career: preparing them to eventually be a leader, who ensures that others achieve high-quality outcomes. Building on experiences from earlier units (that covered working in a team, agile development practices, paying attention to needs and characteristics of users, and the value of data) this unit teaches students key concepts needed as a manager, or when working with managers. The focus includes managing projects, managing services, and ensuring governance.
