“Claiming our place at the table” Building a global voice for teaching academics
teaching academics; advocacy; career management
There have always been 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 unrecognized at an institutional level. However, this is slowly changing. More and more institutions are now appointing teaching academics with the same conditions and status as more ‘traditional’ academics including tenure, access to sabbaticals, and professional development opportunities. This workshop is aimed at building a global community for teaching academics within our field.
