Casualisation concerns everyone in higher education, not just those dealing personally with casual employment. We’re here to try to support those who are making some of the realities of casualisation more visible than they have been. WE are also keen to hear from those who make decisions about casualisation, and those whose in secure employment whose work is framed by trying to find good ways of engaging with precariously-hired colleagues they appreciate and respect without further exploiting their gifted time.
Postgraduate and undergraduate student voices and experiences are welcomed: we are all here because we’re concerned about the expansion of casualisation and its wide impact.
We’re asking regular contributors to write a “Why I’m Here” piece introduce themselves and you can read their thoughts here. If you’re just here to browse and read, and don’t want to write a full post, please feel free to let us know below what brought you here.
Everyone with an interest in casualisation in Australian higher education (including our followers and supporters internationally) is welcome to comment.
