Part-time, Adjunct, Contingent/Casual Educators Symposium - PACE2018 Symposium
Welcome to PACE2018!
What is PACE2018?
PACE2018 is the first of three annual symposia held at the University of Cape Town for part-time, adjunct or contingent/casual/contract educators! Informed by research on the increasing prevalence of casualisation, globally and locally, and the potential impacts of this phenomenon on teaching through academic identity, PACE2018 has two aims:
to bring together non-permanent staff who teach with other members of the UCT community to strengthen a sense of educator identity, and
to create opportunities for PACEducators to share their teaching practices.
Who should be a part of PACE2018?
If you answer "YES" to any of the following, we'd love for you to be a part of PACE2018.
- Are you, or have you recently been, a part-time, adjunct or contingent/casual/contract educator at the University of Cape Town?
- Do you manage or support part-time, adjunct or contingent/casual/contract educators at the University of Cape Town?
- Are you interested in how casualisation is changing the higher education education environment?
But now, how can I get involved with PACE2018?
