Academic Life: A Handbook for New Academics, An
Academic life is complex and adjusting to life as a new academic requires a range of skills and abilities to fulfil the multiple roles the academic must play as researcher, teacher and administrator.
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.
