Sessional teachers play a critical role in helping students achieve the desired learning outcomes of their University courses. It is sessional teachers who do most to create an environment that encourages learning. For many students, particularly undergraduates, sessional teachers are the personal face of the University.

This page has been written to help academic staff settle into their role as supervisors of sessional staff.

Sessional Teachers can be tutors, casual lecturers, demonstrators, clinical tutors, or people from the professions or industry. Casual academic staff are responsible to the Head of School and are assigned responsibilities by the Head. Direct day-to-day duties are usually assigned by the Topic Coordinator.
