An academic staff chat is a frank, open discussion with a small group of your colleagues on a particular topic. The series runs during the academic year and includes four different topics. The first series of chats were held in 2015-16. Some topics may include a speaker or panel prior to ample discussion time. All sessions include a free lunch and are free of charge.
Numbers are very limited to ensure a fruitful small group discussion.
