Welcome to teaching at Flinders University!
Sessional teachers are all staff involved in the teaching, coordination and marking of topics that are paid on a casual, hourly basis. If this applies to you, then this site is your first stop for information to support you in your teaching role.
Teaching is a rewarding activity which is core to Flinders University's operations and values. Sessional or casual staff make up a large percentage of Flinders University teaching staff and play a significant role in preparing our students for their future careers. Sessional staff are valued as key members of the teaching team and we want to help you further develop your teaching skills. The Learning and Teaching Services team welcomes you and we are available to provide resources and guidelines on a diverse range of teaching topics.
To get you off to a confident start in teaching, the Learning and Teaching Services team conducts workshops at the beginning of each semester. It also keeps these webpages fully resourced with a diverse range of learning, teaching and educational technology tips and strategies. We can provide individual support so you are welcome to arrange a meeting with an academic developer to discuss your specific needs. This could involve dealing with classroom issues, grading, clinical supervision or lab demonstration.
So please explore this site, contact us if you need further information and, above all, enjoy your teaching!
