CÉIM offers 1st year students a host of ways to connect with classmates and gain a greater understanding of coursework in a supportive and informal environment.
- Weekly peer learning sessions
Three/four student leaders from higher years facilitate sessions every week on campus for a group of 1st year students within the same discipline.
Sessions centre around getting to know classmates and maximising understanding of a particular subject in a relaxed atmosphere, and also integrate study tools, successful exam techniques and creative problem solving. 1st year students determine the content to be discussed, as opposed to the student leaders.
Sessions are intended to be a safe place where is it OK to admit to not understanding something, and to make mistakes. CÉIM is not a remedial support – it is aimed at all 1st year students. CÉIM sessions are timetabled and attendance is taken. Sessions generally start in week 2 or 3 in Semester 1, and in week 2 in Semester 2, and run for 50 minutes.
