With the current world events, webinars like this provide our students with the ability to continue engaging with professionals in their fields. It gives them the ability to expand on the theory they have learned in class and apply this knowledge to real-world situations from the comfort of their computer, whether that be at home or university.
This event was organised by JCU Brisbane Lecturer, Mr Vizak Gagrat.
