I’m Alexander Morgan, a Level 2 Computing Science student. I’m standing for School Representative for the School of Computing Science.
I’ve been a class representative for CS1Q as well as French and English Language, so I’m familiar with the work for this role. I first came in contact with the SRC when I was an SRC Fresher’s helper in September 2012. My relationship with the SRC reached new heights this August when I was hired to work for the SRC. Since then, I’ve built working relationships with the four Sabbatical officers as well as a number of the other current council members.
If elected, my knowledge and deeper understanding of the workings of the SRC will allow me to ensure that the voice of Computing Science is heard—the good, the bad and the ugly! I will work closely with the college convenor, the university staff and the other School Representatives in order to fairly represent students in the School of Computing Science.
Vote Alexander Morgan for a better School of Computing Science!
As a second year School of Computing Science student I am looking to do a combined honours programme of Computing Science and Economics. On top of my studies I hold a long time involvement in both student television and Model United Nations.
My pledge and manifesto focus on two key points: staff feedback, and transitions. Firstly, I would like to implement a staff feedback system where student on a frequent, regular basis provide their lecturer/tutor with feedback. The aim is to improve both the teaching and learning experience. Secondly, I want to improve transitions – both into University and between years. Personally, I entered the course with limited knowledge of computer science and my experience was positive. I am however aware that this is not the case for everyone. I believe all students should feel they are reasonable challenged and learning every year, including the first two years, regardless of previous experience! We can tackle part of the problem by broadening options within courses and promoting fast route entry.
I am confident that my wide experience of subjects and my experience through student groups will suit the role of School of Computing Science representative excellently.
