ANU Lunch Vox: Promoting Academics: Where does Teaching fit?

Satisfy your midday appetite for conversations about critical issues in education and join the Centre for Learning & Teaching (CLT) for the next edition of the ANU Lunch Vox – a webinar series that brings together a panel of local voices to dissect and debate the hot topics in teaching and learning.

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, November 26 at 12:15-1:15pm for “Promoting Academics: Where does teaching fit?” the final session of the ANU Lunch Vox Webinar Q&A series for 2020.

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.

We’re looking forward to your company!
