Academics work in a highly complex world where they must build integrative capabilities and outcomes as teachers, researchers and leaders. As they progress from novice to expert their evolving identities, methodologies and strategies need to be well-attuned to their own strengths and the sectoral expectations: a process that is greatly facilitated by the guidance of leaders and specialist developers. Developing Academics offers guidance to developers, senior leaders and academics on the principles and practices that support high-performing and adaptive academic communities. As the first work to explore the complex nature of academic capacity building, it offers comprehensive development principles, learning theories and specific strategies to support academic growth and development.

The first explores academic capacity building and the role developers, leaders and academics play. The second part offers comprehensive guidance to higher education developers, providing the theoretical grounding, methodologies and advanced professional techniques that support their service delivery. The third explores the academic development context, mapping the key capabilities that academics need to acquire as they progress from early career to senior roles across their various portfolios. The fourth explores strategies to evaluate and research the impact of higher education development on learners and their performance. In the final part, the design of higher education services and their interaction with university leaders is explored, illustrating the critical importance of building influence and impact across the university community. The positioning of higher education development as a discipline is also mapped.Developers, leaders and academics will find this handbook to be an essential resource for regular reference: full of useful insights, tips and strategies to help them increase their outcomes and impact.

Originally published in 1990. This study investigates the experiences of women in primary teaching and examines the levels of promotion achieved by men and women in the profession. Using extracts from women's accounts of their own career histories, Women in Primary Teaching analyses both the contexts in which careers are constructed and the strategies that are devised by women pursuing careers. The author examines the extent to which women are faced with a dilemma of dual commitments not experienced by men: the juggling of home and family with teaching work. What effect do interruptions in service and continued family management have on a career? How too do women's attitudes to promotion differ from men's and in what manner is promotion sought - if at all? In addressing these questions, this book is interesting to anyone involved in studying women and work as well as practising and student teachers.
'The measure of how well a school suits your child, and consequently how successful it is in educating your child, does not come from looking up an unreliable and highly variable ranking on the internet. It comes from observing your child, being engaged in the school environment and building up a good relationship with your child's teachers. In this way, you can work as a team to achieve the very best education for your child, not just in literacy and numeracy but in so many broad-ranging aspects of life. The connection between home and school is fundamental in each gaining an understanding of the goals of the other.' - Linda Steadman 'Lynne's view of education takes readers on a thought-provoking journey of the education system. It's effectively an appeal to the community to educate itself about the need for a quality education system and to seriously ask ourselves whether a systematic approach to funding linked to performance is the best way to deliver a quality education system.' - Karen Warner 'As parents, we compare our understanding of education today to our own experiences going to school in Australia and Japan respectively. However, the world is different today and memories can become imbued with nostalgia. We therefore found that Lynne's book provided us with a very interesting insight into the education system in Australia today, including some of the real challenges for teachers, drivers for change, government responses and impacts of policy decisions.' - Christopher and Michiyo Perry Lynne Edwards is an early childhood-trained teacher who has taught for more than thirty years. She spent the majority of her career in the preschool sector and the last ten years in the junior primary sector. In the early 1990s she was selected to teach one of the first Early Intervention Units in Canberra, working with a team of therapy specialists. She has tutored in the Childcare Course at Canberra's CIT, and during a sabbatical year in 2003 she was engaged as an early childhood consultant for Questacon, Canberra's Science Centre. In this role, she conducted research, and advised and assisted the planning team with the design and creation of MiniQ, Questacon's permanent exhibition for 0-6 year olds. In 1994 Lynne accepted an exchange teaching position in Vancouver Island, Canada. Since retiring in 2008, Lynne has remained involved in the education field. She has continued relief teaching, and was engaged as a University Liaison Officer at the University of Canberra, advising and supporting pre-service teachers in schools.
