Three Pathways to Support the Professional and Career Development of Casual Academics
Crimmins, Gail; Oprescu, Florin; Nash, Greg
International Journal for Academic Development, v22 n2 p144-156 2017
Almost half of current academic staff will need to be replaced within three years in the Australian academic workforce. Literature suggests that casual academics are a potential solution, yet they are frequently excluded from the career development opportunities that would allow them to fulfil an ongoing academic role. Most academic development programmes designed for and delivered to casual academics are constructed by academic developers with little or no input from casual academics themselves. This paper documents what casual academics determine to be their academic development needs and how they could be addressed using three pathways of professional and career development.
