The second national leadership summit on quality learning and teaching with sessional staff was hosted at Macquarie University on Friday 10 April. With representatives from 35 institutions, including the Office for Learning and Teaching and a director from TEQSA, the atmosphere on the day was vibrant. Following the keynotes, Pecha Kuchas introduced the finalists in the National BLASST Good Practice Awards.
Macquarie made it to the finals. The Faculty of Business and Economics’ Sessional Academic Staff Unit (SASU) run by Dr Gordon Brooks and Linda Carlaw were recognised for “providing faculty-based induction, negotiating long service leave, and subsidising parking. Macquarie University’s Faculty of Business and Economics supports Sessional Staff and enhances sustainability.”
Summit presentations will shortly be uploaded to the BLASST.edu.au website.
