ECM Faculty Focus
The Faculty CATLysts are again running a survey seeking ways to support sessional staff.
UWA is supporting a substantial investigation into ways that sessional teaching staff at UWA can be better supported in their teaching. This undertaking is being conducted by the CATLyst Network (a group of faculty representatives whose role is to promote and enhance quality teaching across the university). As a crucial first step in this project, input from sessional staff members across the university is being sought through an online survey.
Sessional teachers includes those who teach as casual staff, are paid on an hourly basis, fractional appointments less than 0.5FTE or those who may teach unpaid as part of their professional role. Sessional teachers can include adjunct title holders and clinical academics.
The purpose of the survey is to gather information about the current or recent experience of teaching as a sessional teacher at UWA. The information obtained will shape the development of resources to meet the specific needs of sessional teachers.
Your input into this initiative would be most appreciated. The survey, which takes less than 10 minutes to complete, can be accessed on the website.
Respondents to the survey are anonymous. No information will be reported in such a way as to enable identification of individuals.
