Association of Commonwealth Universities – series of free virtual events

Kia ora colleagues I have received the following through our membership with the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU). Please promote – the topics are wide, covering:

  • Teaching and learning
  • Research management
  • The Sustainable Development Goals
  • Library
  • HR, and more.

Given the time zone differences, these times are unlikely to suit you. I note from their website that the sessions will be recorded and I can get copies so let me know if you are interested in that. I hope everyone is staying well, Karen
