Stay in the know with JCU’s Inspiration on Tap. Discover what the latest changes in employment law mean and explore how teachers overcame challenges to deliver classes online during COVID-19.

Are we better off overall in the post-pandemic workplace?

Employment law is, as ever, full of new legal developments. While 2020 was all about Job Keeper, the post-pandemic world has seen allegations of, and legal changes regarding, sexual harassment at work and corporate bullying. Senate opposition to the Federal Government’s proposed broad-ranging reform of labour law means the only meaningful law reform relates to casuals. Throw into the mix that a trade unionist — who was once regarded as contributing to the advent of the trade union royal commission — is set to inherit millions, after having declared bankruptcy. Join JCU’s Associate Professor Louise Floyd on a whirlwind tour of employment law and what it means for you.

Kids, cats and barking at the postman — Teaching online during the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020.

Learning is not exclusive to students. COVID-19’s effects on education resulted in many teachers suddenly becoming pupils of technology, online pedagogy and Murphy's Law. Join JCU’s Dr Sarah-Jane Wilson and explore how lecturers and teaching staff rose to the challenge of teaching online.

This is a COVID-safe event and registration confirmation is required to be shown on the evening.
