The Casual Academic Program is a program for UTS teaching staff on casual contracts. It provides paid professional learning opportunities to support your teaching practice.

Who is eligible?

This workshop program is open to UTS staff on active casual teaching contracts in Autumn 2023. You will be paid to participate in up to two online professional development workshops in the Autumn 2023 Casual Academic Program. Paid places are at the Other Academic Activity non-PhD rate of $51.35ph. This is a professional learning opportunity, not a teaching activity.

Who is not eligible?

Those who are in full-time or fractional employment at UTS in addition to their casual academic contract are not eligible for this workshop program.   

Registrations close at 11am, Friday 3 February

You may register your interest for up to two workshops when registrations open at 10am, Tuesday, 24 January (a form will be visible below then).
