VicTeach considers the proposed new academic pathways

Facilitators: Rhian Salmon/Hazel Godfrey, Centre for Science in Society

This informal VicTeach Zoom get-together was designed for academic and professional staff and tutors interested in the new academic career pathways proposal, especially the teaching-intensive pathway.

Consultation around this proposal was unfortunately interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This session brought this important issue back to our attention and helped us as individual staff members and members of the teaching community to think about the potential associated opportunities and challenges.

The Provost, Wendy Larner, agreed to join the first part of this session so that the community could clarify and ask questions about the proposal prior to an open discussion among participants. This session helped provide ideas and inspiration for VicTeach members to then submit their own individual, informed, feedback about the proposal.

We encouraged participants to review information about the proposal prior to this session, including Prof Larner’s presentation and slides, and the updated timeline.
