TechNet 2019: The Power of Connectivity

4–6 December 2019
Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus

Event details

We are very fortunate to belong to a group, which covers Australia in its entirety. Being able to connect with the TechNet group through the internet as well as our annual conference gives us the strength and power to help each other, to improve practices, to find like-minded technical staff who are passionate about what we do and to create connections and form bonds, which can exist for a long time to come.

Through the power of connectivity we will come together to focus on ways to help make education and our world a better place, to continue to make new connections and renew old ones.

We look forward to seeing you all in Geelong, Victoria at Deakin University, Waurn Ponds Campus at TechNet 2019: The Power of Connectivity.
