How KPU 100 Works

There are two program options. Synchronous session will happen at the start and end of each program. One program starts at 8:00 am on Monday with a live session and again we see you on Friday at the same time (April 26 & 30, 8:00-9:00am). Another program starts at 7:00 pm on Monday and see you again on Thursday evening at 7:00pm (April 26 & 29, 7:00 - 8:00pm). The rest of the program is self-paced and you will get feedback from your program presenters as you complete your activities.
