En todas partes se cuecen habas. Aquí escribí parte de mi experiencia y opinión de ser un profesor universitario en Australia.
I have been a “casual academic” for the last four years in Canberra. As such, I have tutored, done research, lectured, presented in conferences, written and reviewed academic papers. To be a ‘casual” was not something I looked for, but more of a consequence of being a full time international PhD student in Australia.
Not long after starting my PhD, I took a casual teaching position to get to know Australian higher education better and gain teaching experience at Oz universities. At the beginning I was excited and happy to be doing that job. It allowed me to earn some money, get to know people, improve my teaching skills and discover my potentiality as a culture mediator. To be honest, it also allowed me to get distracted from my tedious PhD research and gain a hands on experience in the Oz higher education sector (as a Chilean, it sounded exciting few years ago).
