How it works

The WSSR offer a series of courses for credit, these courses can be taken as stand-alone courses or as part of the new 15-credit Elective Group in Knowledge Implementation, Networking and Decision-Making (KIND).

About the KIND Elective Group

In this Elective Group students can select and attend a variety of workshops offered as part of the WSSR series for credit. These workshops provide unique, short, intensive learning experiences and networking opportunities led by prominent guest workshop lecturers ranging from extraordinary public figures with real, in-the-field experience and significant career contributions, to highly influential academics who bring with them long-standing research and teaching track records and experience leading cutting-edge research projects.

These workshops and courses are designed to lead and guide students through a variety of timely and pertinent topics with an overall emphasis on developing their capabilities to implement knowledge, network, make decisions, and problem-solve.

Who is eligible?

This elective group is open to students from all faculties at Concordia (FAS, FOFA, JMSB, ENCS). While these courses have no prerequisites, whenever possible, students are encouraged to take these courses in their consecutive order to enhance learning outcomes.
