Abstract

Early Career Teachers in Higher Education explores the experiences of Early Career Teachers [ECTs] through thirteen personal teaching journeys from academics working across Africa, South America, Europe, Asia and Australasia. This edited volume contains the subjective narrative of each contributor's entry into academia, their pedagogic practice and the development of their multiple teaching identities. The personal testimony presented here may help other new teachers negotiate the challenges and opportunities that they face when entering a dynamic tertiary education sector. The book will be a valuable resource for ECTs and academics around the world as they begin teaching in Higher Education. In addition, this edited book highlights contemporary issues, such as precarity, casualisation, fragmentation of academic responsibilities and intersectionality, that shape contemporary ECT workloads. It therefore contributes to our understanding of Higher Education in practice through a focus on this important group of academics, who—with a disproportionate involvement in teaching and learning activities—will continue to shape the sector for years to come.
