Expert Learners Seminar Series (ELSS)

Expert Learners Seminar Series (ELSS)

The University Experience you have just started will be both challenging and fun. You will have more freedom than ever before but at the same time have more responsibility for your own learning. The Expert Learners Seminar Series (ELSS) is to help you achieve your academic potential.

ELSS is offered as ‘blended learning’ - a mixture of two face-to-face seminars and four online seminars. 

ELSS is especially for year one undergraduates. Registration is limited and is first-come, first-served. Successful completion of the series will earn students a CRESDA credit.  Registrants should come to a face-to-face seminar in week 1 and in week 6, as well as complete the four weekly online seminars at their own pace and place.
