Creating events

Overview

This page details how you can add event items to the Melbourne Graduate School of Education website.

Upcoming events are listed on the /news_and_activities/events page.

Where an event is 'tagged' as being hosted by either CPP, CVEP or YRC reserach centres, the event wil also be listed on the centre's home page and past events page once the event date has past.
