September 30, 2019

London, ON., September 30th, 2019 – tbk has partnered with Fanshawe College on a new web development course series designed to educate students on highly practical web development technologies that are in high demand in industry.

The first program—scheduled to begin in October—is on how to develop websites using WordPress, the world’s most popular content management system. In this course, students will learn how to develop commercial WordPress websites. The second course—scheduled to commence in January 2020—will train students on how to build e-commerce websites.

tbk’s Fanshawe College Web Design Course Series is a form of integrated learning. As a polytechnics institution, Fanshawe College is one of Canada’s leaders in integrated learning.

“Fanshawe is delighted to have reached this course delivery agreement with tbk,” said Michelle Giroux, Associate Dean, Fanshawe College. “Through tbk’s course series, students will gain an industry standard learning opportunity that will give them a leg up in their future careers. Partnering with a company like tbk is a differentiator for students to come to Fanshawe College.”

“This web design course series really adds additional value outside of the classroom for students and bringing professionals like tbk into the classroom helps enhance the learning experience,” said Justin Brunner, Program Coordinator & Professor, Fanshawe College.” There are lots of benefits to this course series. Students are gaining connection with industry. They are learning new workflows. They are learning hands on applications that will help them better gain employment upon graduation.”

“The pace of change in industry is fast,” said Andrew Schiestel, President, tbk. “The more often post-secondary institutions can partner with industry and vice versa, the better this will help academic institutions keep up with this change and the more quickly companies can fill job openings. Overall, we’re very excited for these students. Their employability will increase as a result of learning how to develop websites on WordPress. And regarding the e-commerce course, in some cases, students will literally leave the course having started new businesses. We’re immensely excited to see the opportunities this course series will bring to the students, industry, Fanshawe College and our community.”

Students in Fanshawe College’s Interactive Media Design and Interactive Media Specialist programs are eligible to apply to participate in the course series by emailing Justin Brunner, Course Coordinator, Fanshawe College, at [email protected]. Participation in the course series is limited.
