The Faculty prides itself on providing professionally relevant and socially engaged degree programs that prepare graduates for global citizenship. The Faculty’s mission is to create and share knowledge to inspire, enrich and transform humanity. Our goal is to be in the top 10 nationally and the top 200 globally for teaching and research excellence in Creative Arts, Education, and Humanities and Social Science. We are currently ranked in the QS Top 200 for Education, English Language & Literature, Linguistics, and Sociology. In the 2012 Excellence for Research in Australia (ERA) evaluation exercise, 80% of the Faculty's assessed research was rated as world standard, including the highest possible rating of 5 in the country for Social Work (well above world standard).

Future Workforce Portfolio

Administrative

Administrative expertise

Professor Germov has significant university and sector-wide leadership expertise and experience.

He is an influential leader in the discipline of sociology in Australia, evidenced through his various leadership roles and discipline-related publications and presentations, where he has been a strong advocate of the relevance and utility of sociology to addressing real-world social challenges.

As President of the Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DASSH), John is responsible for promoting the vital role that the creative arts, humanities and social sciences have to play in public life and in the development of global citizens.

Professor Germov also leads the university-wide Future Workforce portfolio, a key plank of UoN's NeW Directions Strategic Plan. As author of the Future Workforce Plan, he is responsible for the development, implementation and embedding of a new Performance Review and Development (PRD) process, which incorporates for the first time a comprehensive UoN Leadership Framework and detailed Performance Expectations for all staff. Other workforce initiatives include:

  • Establishing the UoN Academy, which is a bold sector-leading initiative that aims to provide a systematic approach to career development, recognition and professional support for conjoint, casual and sessional academic staff.
  • Development of the ‘UoN Career Advantage’ Package and Employee Value Proposition (EVP) that outlines the distinctive career support and development opportunities available for the University’s academic and professional staff. This has involved the introduction of new Leadership Programs for Heads of School (HOS) and Directors, including associated networking and 'hot topic' forums.
  • Creation of a staff mobility and exchange program for professional and academic staff.
  • Healthy UoN: a whole-of-University, evidence-based health promotion framework that addresses physical, social and mental well-being, including the introduction of a smoke-free campus in 2014, supported physical fitness activities, and organisational health strategies, such as our Building Respectful and Collaborative Workplaces policies and practices launched in 2013.

Teaching

Teaching expertise

Professor Germov has had a significant influence on his discipline of sociology. His text, 'Public Sociology: An Introduction to Australian Society' (now in its 3rd edition), has shaped the way sociology is taught and studied in Australia. John's highly-cited social determinants of health reader, 'Second Opinion' (5th edition), has been the market-leading Australian book for over 15 years.

John was co-author of the ALTC-funded scoping study, 'Teaching Sociology in Australia' (2009), was a member of the Discipline Reference Group which authored the Sociology Threshold Learning Outcomes (TLOs), published in 2012 by The Australian Sociological Association (TASA), and co-edited 'Histories of Australian Sociology' (MUP 2005) - the leading account of the development of sociology in Australia.

In the mid-2000s, in the role of Program Convenor of the Bachelor of Social Science, John developed an innovative prescribed sequence of core courses addressing social research methods, social theory, and social policy, along with a work-integrated learning stream throughout all three years of the degree.

As part of his ongoing commitment to ensuring students have the requisite academic skills to prosper at university, early in his career he authored three university-level academic study skills texts; and most recently the third edition of his best-selling book 'Get Great Marks for your Essays, Reports and Presentations' (Allen & Unwin) was published in 2011.
