How KPU100 Works

The synchronous sessions will happen at the start, middle and end of the series. We start with a live session on Monday, a mid-week check point and again we see you on Friday at the same time. The rest of the series is self-paced and you will get feedback from your KPU100 facilitators as you complete your activities.
