Report of the Commonwealth Committee of Inquiry into Salaries of Lecturers and Senior Lecturers in Colleges of Advanced Education.
Australian Ministry of Science and Education, Canberra.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of an Australian committee report investigating lecturers' salaries in institutions of higher learning. The report classifies two groups of institutions: institutes of technology and single discipline colleges. Lecturing staff should be encouraged to move between institutes in Australia during the course of their careers; staff interchanges between the institutes should be encouraged; staff members should develop national/international outlooks and participate in interchanges between developed and developing countries. The question of defined barriers in salary ranges should be determined by management. Certain standards, requirements, probationary periods, length of service, and other considerations classifying lecturers and senior lecturers must all be considered in determining salaries. In return, lecturing staff may expect a policy from the institutes allowing them to continue with their own studies, seek consultant work, and participate in the cultural life of the community. Placement should be made after review of the staff by management, regardless of sex. (Author/GDB)
