UoN Academy

The UON Academy is a bold sector-leading initiative that acknowledges the fundamental impact that  casual, sessional (fixed-term) and conjoint academic staff have on the overall performance of the University, particularly the quality of student learning and engagement.

Through the UON Academy, UON aims to establish a culture of recognition and a systematic approach to career development and professional support for casual, sessional and conjoint academics.Professional development for sessional staff

We provide a range of resources to support the administration of your teaching activities and to facilitate quality learning outcomes for students.

Are you a member?

All casual, sessional and conjoint academic staff will automatically be members of the UON Academy. There is no application process.

Academy members are viewed as a University-wide workforce in the same way as ongoing staff.
