Academic Skills Workshops
New to study at Morling or need to refresh your Academic Skills?
Join us over the coming four Tuesdays (12pm-1pm Perth time, 2pm-3pm Sydney time) via livestream to learn new skills and get support. For those who can't make it, we will record these sessions and make them available on Moodle - but it is always better if you can be there in real time!
While you don't need to rsvp, it would be helpful to send Wendy Noble an email to let her know you plan to be there.
