Teaching is essential to the university, but is service and achievement in teaching sufficiently recognised in academic promotions? How does one make teaching “count” in a promotion application? What obstacles are seen as preventing the recognition of teaching achievements? What improvements could be made to ensure teaching service and innovations are recognised?
With such a prime function, it remains a mystery as to why teaching isn’t more strongly featured in career considerations. We know it matters; and more so, we know through rigorous research it makes a significant difference to student success trajectories. And yet, so often teaching plays the second fiddle … why is this so?
Join us on Thursday, March 25 at 12:15-1:15pm for “Promoting Academics: Where does teaching fit?” the first session of the ANU Lunch Vox Webinar Q&A series for 2021.
Where does teaching fit?
A diverse panel of academics from around the campus will have an honest conversation about this hotly contested topic, armed with their own expertise as promotions board members and teaching enthusiasts.
