Staff Conference 2022

Staff Conference 2022

12 - 16 September 2022 - Building our University Community

Thanks for being part our staff conference!

The Conference took place on campus from 15 - 16 September 2022 with the theme ‘Building our University Community’. 

Many of the activities took place on our Canterbury campus, whilst strand A sessions were recorded and can be viewed by clicking the links below. 

On Friday afternoon, the event closed with an all-staff barbecue, and we hoped it topped off two days spent celebrating our learning and enhancing our connections with one another. 

Our Medway campus hosted their barbecue on Wednesday 14 September, and we are delighted to have offered a number of staff wellbeing activities in Medway on the day.
