The Melbourne Sessional Teachers' Handbook
This handbook has been prepared specifically for University of Melbourne teachers who are employed on a sessional, short term or casual basis. It provides a broad framework that can be used by sessional teachers to plan their teaching and to reflect on the role they play in supporting and influencing student learning. As well, it offers practical advice and strategies for the classroom.
This handbook takes a ‘whole-of-university’ approach to teaching and learning and therefore does not attempt to cover the specific teaching settings or requirements in departments and faculties. Depending on a teacher’s disciplinary background and personal approach to teaching, parts of this handbook may be more useful and relevant than others. Teachers should also refer to induction materials, handbooks or guides produced by their departments or faculties.
