The following workshops have been designed for sessional staff to introduce you to resources available to you at RMIT to support your Learning and Teaching activities. The workshop will be useful for both new and existing sessional staff.

This session aims to introduce you to information and resources to support your teaching at RMIT. Included will be an overview and exploration of an online repository of resources which will :

  • help you get to know RMIT and the College of Busines
  • build awareness of the approaches to teaching and learning that are valued at RMIT
  • outline expectations and essentials of your role
  • provide tools and links to assist you in your teaching
  • provide quick access links to systems and services that can support your employment.

The repository is a growing resource, so there will also be an opportunity for you to request content that you feel will make your teaching experience more satisfactory.
