I'm teaching an adult/continuing education class on Swift using the Pearson Certification course, and I'm in a jam - it's designed to be a ~46 hour certification, but we only have 14 hours of class time. I'm not sure of people's level coming in, but I do recognize that we're short on time. Given that, I have some questions that I think you folks would be well equipped to help me out with:
- What are some things that you wish you had learned as a beginning programmer?
- What teaching style do you think is the best way to learn?
- Do you think having students pair program would be beneficial?
I'd love to know the thoughts of the masses! Any nugget of guidance would help me out :)
