Did you know that Griffith is hosting a two-day Microsoft Office 365 + Teams in Learning and Teaching Summit in June? A lot of your Griffith colleagues have already registered for the Summit, and we’re counting down the days! There’s still a few spots open, so if you’re wondering if you should register, here’s 4 reasons why it’s worth considering…

1. Hear from some great guest speakers

You will have the chance to hear from some great speakers who will inspire you and share the possibilities that Microsoft Office 365 + Teams offer to enhance learning and teaching in practice.
