July Webinars

WTUN is launching a series of webinars to allow members to share best practise about how technology universities have maintained their key services during the time of COVID-19 which has impacted staff and students across the globe.

This is an opportunity for members and non-members to discuss the actions they had to take the lessons they have learnt in this unprecedented time, which involved many institutions having to implement large amounts of change in a short space of time. Non-WTUN members are also welcome to join the events.
