An Academic Life assists in the process of orienting new academics to the nature of academic life, particularly greater accountability in all aspects of academic life, growth in the numbers of academic staff, and increasing demands and expectations from the growing student population. This title addresses the key areas of academic work: teaching and learning; research, research training and publication; administration and community service; and the social and cultural aspects of academic life. Robert Cantwell and Jill Scevak have brought together new academics and experienced educators from a variety of discipline backgrounds to provide clear and practical insights into the journey of entering the world of academic life. Any new academic will find this book an invaluable resource for conceptualising and contextualising the academic world they are now part of.
