The Tertiary Education Union will meet with Waikato University's Vice Chancellor Neil Quigley today over  the university’s decision to deliver lectures online only for the rest of the year. Some academics have reacted with confusion and frustration saying the move has been poorly communicated. Shane Vugler is TEU branch organiser at the University of Waikato.
