Academic Promotions (Teaching)

The University of Sydney recognises the mutual interaction of teaching research and learning.

There are now three promotion pathways:

  1. Teaching & Research
  2. Education-focused
  3. Research-focused

Full details of the University’s promotion process and guidelines for applicants are available here. The Provost and other members of the Senior Executive Group hold a briefing for intending applicants each year.

Making the case for Teaching

In consultation with the Provost, Associate Deans Learning and Teaching/Staffing – in collaboration with previous successful promotion applicants, members of local promotion committees and the ITL – offer workshops in Divisions to support promotion applicants in making their case for Teaching.

The sessions are held in Faculties in the weeks following the Provost's briefing session. Please contact your Faculty's Associate Dean Learning and Teaching to find out more about the session for your Faculty.
