  • Fireside Chats & Prickly Panels

This series aims to involve academics in conversations that affect their teaching practice and impact, focusing on topics that impact the teacher experience in the classroom, the teaching-research nexus and satisfaction in teaching more broadly.

Panel Members: Professors Jamie Evans, William Ho and Julie Clarke.

Facilitator: Professor Angela Paladino

Do you think that our workloads models capture how teaching has changed over the past few years? Keen to discuss this further? Then join us for an informal conversation following our prickly panel to discuss teaching workloads and workloads models: how effective they are, what is the impact of our current model on our academic work, what they could look like for all academics in the new AS&E strategy.

We will examine perspectives from academics & leadership in departments as well as from across faculties and the university leadership.
