Coding bootcamps won’t teach our students to be good citizens

What if coding bootcamps don’t teach our students to be good citizens, too?

Reported by EdSurge, the morality of our technology and AI are starting to come into question. With wrongful arrests from facial recognition software, using surveillance monitoring in certain areas of the city and not others, and more being called into question.

The takeaway? Is this where higher ed can tell a beautiful liberal arts story? Where our students are not only receiving world-class computer science training, but also provided a deep education in ethics and cultural inclusivity as well? And is this the difference between graduating mere coders vs. innovators?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
