The Center of Excellence at CCIT will hold a focus event on Apple’s “Everyone Can Code” initiative on Thursday, June 8, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Education Media Center in 212 Tillman Hall.

Apple Education Development Executive Joel Davies will be the event’s featured speaker. A member of the national Apple Higher Education Curriculum Development team, Davies works with educational institutions to help them realize their academic mission through transformative teaching and learning practices. With a decade-plus of higher education experience at Creighton and Marquette Universities, Davies led the merger of Creighton’s journalism and computer science departments to offer 21st century degrees. He also founded the Creighton Apple Authorized Training Center and advised Studio Blue, a student-run design and development agency.

Apple’s “Everyone Can Code” initiative aims to bring coding education to schools and was designed around students and the company’s Swift programming language. Click here to learn more about the initiative.

This event marks the kickoff for a year-long creativity and coding engagement with the Center of Excellence and Apple.
