Dr Marina Harvey reflects on a recent project
Following a two year OLT funded project on sessional staff (BLASST.edu.au) including a national summit with participants from 40 higher education institutions, key presentations and research papers were developed into a special edition of a journal. I believe that this is the first such special edition of a journal devoted to a focus on quality learning and teaching with sessional staff. If you have ever wondered about:
- who and how many sessional staff teach in our universities – read the article by May et al,
- what innovations have been trialled overseas and with what effect – read Bryson’s or Sutherland and Gilbert’s contribution,
- what innovations have been developed in Australia – five articles cover this.
