    Petition to the Vice Chancellor, Monash University re allocation of time in workloads for all professional development activities

    We recognise that professional development makes an important contribution to improving the work done by the University.  Resourcing that development with time to do the programs and to implement what we learn is vital.

    The Continuing Education Excellence Development (CEED) program is designed to improve the teaching abilities of all educators and the University has made compulsory the completion of 3 modules annually. This is without time allocation.

    We, the undersigned, protest about the requirement for any staff of Monash University to be required to participate in professional development programs without recognition of the workload implications of doing so.  In the case of CEED or any other mandated professional development such as OHS, Equal Opportunity, Privacy and Ethical and Professional Conduct, the time impact of participation in the program and implementing what is learned must be recognised as a workload allocation.

    Posted 21 June 2016 by Jeannie Rea (NTEU National Office)

    In this long federal election campaign it has become far too easy to be cynical and to disengage other than to ‘like’ the occasional witty meme on Facebook. 

    As we enter the final weeks of the election campaign will intensify and the big money will start advertising. The alcohol and gambling lobbies will go for Xenophon. The coal miners and their mates, including the nuclear industry, will throw their massive resources against the Greens, to not only stop Green electoral gains, but to send the message to Labor and to Turnbull to watch their step. The relatively benign coverage given to the minor players will switch off. Wilkie, Lazarus, Lambie and other recontesting Independents and new candidates will struggle to be heard at the very time their voices are needed against the cacophony of the two party
