JCU's sessional teaching staff make a significant contribution to the learning experience of our students. Sessional staff are valued as key members of the teaching team and the The Centre for Education and Enhancement (CEE), along with each College, offers teaching and academic services and support.

All sessional staff are invited to CEE's series of professional development workshops and events.  JCU recognises the valuable contribution of sessional staff, and rewards excellence in sessional teaching through the annual Sessional Teaching Awards.

When starting as a new staff member you may be made aware of your occupational health and safety obligations, as well as your workplace rights and responsibilities. Also see HR Online training and user guides, and HR staff development workshops and training.

As educators, you may have the following questions:

  • How can I engage my students?
  • How can I motivate them to do read?
  • How can I get them to prepare for class?

These notions of 'what we could do', usually follow with hypothesise, experiments, review of the results of our experiments and - hopefully - a sharing of the fruits of our inquiry with others.

This is more or less what the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is. It is the systematic inquiry into student learning with a systematic scholarly approach to contribute knowledge to SoTL literature, a growing research discipline.

There are a range of teaching awards and citations offered to recognise and celebrate your excellence in learning and teaching and student support.
