Sessional Staff Induction

James Cook University sessional staff who are new to teaching, or who have not completed the induction within the last three years, are required to attend induction as part of their ongoing appointment. The program is presented as a 4-hour workshop.

The session aims to introduce you to James Cook University's Strategic Intent; our student population; your role, responsibilities and support networks; the higher education regulatory environment and internal guiding policies; learning, teaching and assessment principles; learning technologies and support; and strategies to inform and enhance your professional practice as tertiary educators.

Sessions are offered in teaching periods (TP) 1 and 2 each year, generally during O Week. Sessions are presented in person at the Cairns and Townsville campuses, and at other locations via Zoom.
