Quality learning and teaching with sessional staff – do you want to know more?

Dr Marina Harvey reflects on a recent project

ltc_staff_pics_marina_harveyFollowing 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.
