Event Description

Join us as Josu Abrego-Sanz from Charles Sturt University offers an overview of the newly created Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): What’s Uni Like? The session will include time for discussion, as well as the opportunity for networking following the event.

What’s Uni Like? is a MOOC in which participants build pre-tertiary achievement levels and explore aspects of the transition to university. The course addresses the key areas of student expectations, transition to university life, academic writing and reading, digital literacy and online learning skills. As a non-branded course, it promotes university study in general. The course is free-of-charge, easily accessible and self-paced.

Please feel welcome to share the invitation with anyone from your institution who would benefit from learning about this fantastic resource.
