The Secret Lecturer: An Insider's Guide to Working in a Modern University

By Anon


The Secret Lecturer: An Insider’s Guide to Working in a Modern University is a darkly humorous look at what it is really like to work in a modern Australian university. Set against a backdrop of rising student numbers and falling staff numbers, it draws on extensive insider knowledge to highlight the often absurd and farcical decision-making that follows from letting a bunch of smart people try to run a business that sells ‘education’. None of the information contained here is a secret, although most universities will wish it were.

Written by an academic with over twenty years of teaching experience at some of Australia’s very best and (through some serious career missteps) worst universities, this is the insider’s guide that all current and budding lecturers should read.
