In early August, 120 Placement Coordinators and InPlace Superusers from all over Australia representing 26 Higher Edu Institutes arrived at Monash College in the Melbourne CBD for a two day conference on all things InPlace.
The format mixes all-inclusive presentations with breakout workshops to maximise involvement and participation. Standout presentations include 4.0 release overview, feature request session and the Panel. A Thursday evening visit to the InPlace office and dinner at Carlton’s Epocha restaurant was enjoyed by all.Several attendees noted the positivity and collaboration between the sites as very beneficial with direct productivity gains to be taken from the conference.
Special thanks goes out to the organising committee from Monash University with assistance from Victoria University, in particular Jennifer Ellis who did a fantastic job compering the event and arranging a very successful User Group.
The Australian 2017 User Group was the 8th iteration and second time hosting by Monash University.
