Academic Performance Matrices and Evidence Framework

Image of dictionary text focused on definition of academic.

The ACU Academic Performance Matrices and Evidence Framework (APME) has been published and can be viewed on the ACU website. The APME Framework is one of several frameworks and standards that express the University’s expectations of the conduct, capability, participation and contribution of staff (such as the Code of Conduct, the Learning for Life Framework and the Capability Development Framework).

The APME Framework applies to all academic staff and describes the performance expectations by Academic Level for each Academic Career Pathway (ACP). It also provides comprehensive examples of evidence across all areas of academic activity. The APME Framework provides clarity regarding performance expectations that guide academic staff contributions to achieve ACU’s strategy and support our Mission.

In addition, the APME Framework supports conversations between academic staff and supervisors about career planning and development in their current role and considerations for working towards a higher level.

Academic staff and supervisors are encouraged to register for information sessions or supervisor workshops in November 2016 that will introduce and explain the APME Framework, and how it applies to academic work and people processes.
