Welcome to ChatLAANZ

ChatLAANZ is a professional development and community building opportunity based on a model demonstrated by Australia and New Zealand Student Services Association Inc (ANZSSA). They are Zoom (or Teams) meetings of about 40-50 minutes each, scheduled at lunchtime. The sessions provide examples of what colleagues at various institutions are doing in certain areas of interest.

In 2024, we are holding lunchtime sessions between 12:10 – 1:00 pm once a month on the following Thursdays: 

21 March | 18 April | 23 May | 20 June | 18 July | 22 August | 19 September | 24 October

A Zoom or Teams link will be emailed to you prior to the session. You can also access the link on the CHATLAANZ page. When possible, we made the slides and recordings of the sessions available. Scroll to see the block called “Past ChatLAANZ sessions”.
