The revised Academic Workload Policy will come into effect on 1 January 2021, following the mutual agreement by the university and the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) in July 2020.
The revised policy is the result of a comprehensive review and extensive stakeholder consultation with academic staff, academic supervisors, other stakeholders and the union. The experiences and views of all stakeholders have been fully considered to inform improvements to the policy as well as the supporting Academic Workload Planning System (AWPS).
Read the revised Academic Workload Policy, now available in the university’s policy library.
Some of the key changes to the Academic Workload Policy include:
Before planning the academic workload for 2021, it is recommended all academic staff and supervisors attend an information session to learn about the changes to the Academic Workload Policy and supporting Academic Workload Planning System. These sessions are scheduled for October 2020 and will be communicated once firm dates are established.
The sessions will provide an overview of the key changes to the Academic Workload Policy and guidance on how to apply the policy for changed academic activities and workload allocations, as well as point out some of the useful features of the AWPS to assist you when planning your academic workload for next year.
