- About Deakin
This handbook is designed to provide support for new and inexperienced casual academic staff at Deakin University. It is organised into sections which reflect many of the issues that new casual academics face, and need to know about so that you may perform effectively in your role at the University.
These sections provide you with guidance on matters such as:
The handbook will not contain everything you need to know, but will be regularly updated online as information changes. So if there are things you are uncertain about, there are many people at Deakin willing to assist you. Some of these are included in this handbook. Others you will come to know within your School and Faculty. ‘Local knowledge’ within your community of practice is invaluable!
We welcome you to Deakin and hope that you find your time with the University rewarding.
