Learning Events aim to facilitate whole person education. A variety of topics are covered, including language learning, information literacy, information technology skills, and more. Events are facilitated by experts from the University’s academic and administrative departments.
Participation in our Learning Events is recognized under the University’s Co-Curricular Learning (CCL) programme. Depending on the length of the Event, participants will receive a half credit or full credit. Please refer to individual Event descriptions for details of CCL status.
Note: In order to claim CCL credit, you must attend the workshop. Additionally, you must submit the Learning Event Evaluation online form within the same day as the workshop.

Bitcoin: The future of money or decentralized Ponzi scheme?
In this session, we will apply information litearcy skills to the debate surrounding Bitcoin. Since its invention in 2009, some
have heralded it as one of the greatest innovations in history. Others have derided it as no more than a scam to con
people out of their savings. Both sides have their own experts and seemingly authoritative arguments.
