HERDSA Webinar: Education focused academics: the changing face of academia
Event has expired!
Please note that this event has expired.
There have always been discipline based academics whose passion has been education rather than research. The contribution and commitment of these faculty, while often valued within their own department, has largely gone unrecognised at an institutional level in absence of clear guidelines and a national policy. However, this is slowly changing. More and more institutions now have teaching/education focused academics engaging in scholarship, accessing professional development opportunities and with career progression akin to those with traditional teaching and research work portfolios.
In this panel discussion hosted by the HERDSA NSW Branch, we will explore the recent drivers and changes to the higher education environment that have led to the development of these roles; look at the question of ‘academic identity’ and career pathways in this changing institutional environment and some of the challenges that still remain.
Webinar Presenters : Janis Wardrop, Jo-Anne Chuck, Corina Raduescu, Collins Fleischner, Gerry Raynor, Sharon Flecknoe, John Randal, Susan Page.
