Strategies for Being an Active Researcher while Teaching (and having a life)

The aim of this forum is to help you develop strategies for finding a balance between teaching and research (and enjoying life too).  Whether you call it a juggle or a balance, many academic women acknowledge the squeeze on trying to 'fit it all in' - managing family and caring responsibilities, developing your teaching portfolio, the pressure to write (and win) grants and publish papers.  Our panel of speakers come from a range of disciplines and stages of career, and will discuss their experiences of how they have managed these demands.  We hope to offer practical advice in a supportive atmosphere, with opportunities to discuss and share your experiences with other academic women.

Date: Wednesday 7th December, 9.30 - 12 pm
 
Venue:

Margaret Murray Room, Level 4 Union House

The project is summarised below, and the full funding application is available here.

Project summary

The project should be completed, culminating in a report with recommendations for change submitted to University management, by November 2007.

 

The project includes $20,000 teaching relief for the chief investigator(s).

In addition to completing the project, AWF asks the chief investigator(s) to undertake the following two related tasks:

  2. Convene AWF in 2007 and, ideally, in 2008 (I am retiring in June 2008. As I have study leave in first semester next year, followed by ARC funded teaching relief until my retirement; I am stepping down from the AWF convenor role at the end of this year. Please note the Convenor does receive some administrative support in this role from the Equity Project Officer).

Senior colleagues among the AWF membership are encouraged to apply in conjunction with a junior colleague, thus providing research mentoring to a junior colleague in relation to funded research project management. The distribution of the teaching relief will be at the discretion of the team of CIs.

Applications
