Virtual Event Series

In a time of reduced human mobility and social distancing, digital technology provides a means of connecting with people in ways that were previously overlooked. In place of the two in-person CAUL council meetings that were scheduled for this year, CAUL will be organising a series of engaging virtual events from June through to November 2020.

A working group has been established to coordinate the organisation of these events, members include:

  • Morgan Burgess, The Australian Catholic University
  • Naomi Mullumby, Melbourne University
  • Sally Murray-Walsh, The University of Newcastle
  • Harry Rolf, CAUL
  • Cicy Zheng, CAUL

List of events

Scheduled events are listed below, separate event pages will be created and linked when event details are finalised.
