S 2.5 For the purposes of this Schedule the following definitions apply:
Basic lecture rate: Paid where the lecturer is provided with the course outline and lecture notes. The rate also includes preparation and student consultation.
Developed lecture rate: Paid where the lecturer assumes significant responsibility for planning and developing a course, unit or subject, or a large part of a unit as well as lecturing, or where a lecture or small group of lectures calls for special expertise. This rate is also paid where the staff member has responsibility for coordination of a course or unit.
Specialised lecture rate: Paid to a distinguished visiting scholar for a single lecture or for each lecture in a small group of lectures and for specialised lectures by experts in a field of study.
Repeat lecture rate: As additional major preparation is not assumed to be required, the repeat lecture rate provides for two hours of work. Minor modification and student engagement and consultation is still required.
The CSA rate in a repeat lecture applies to a second or subsequent delivery of substantially the same lecture in the same subject matter within a period of 7 days, and any marking and student consultation reasonably contemporaneous with it.
For the purposes of this schedule the term ‘tutorial’ means any education delivery described as a tutorial or seminar in a course or in an official timetable issued by the University.
A CSA staff member required to deliver or present a tutorial (or equivalent delivery through other than face-to-face teaching mode) of a specified duration and the related directly associated non-contact duties in the nature of preparation, reasonably contemporaneous marking and student consultation, will be paid at a rate for each hour of tutorial delivered or presented, according to the following table.
The CSA rate in a repeat tutorial applies to a second or subsequent delivery of substantially the same tutorial in the same subject matter within a period of seven days and any marking and student consultation reasonably contemporaneous with it.
In considering tutorial size, each area will consider the staff – student ratio to ensure that the quality of the educational experience for students does not diminish.
S 2.7 Musical accompanying with special educational services
For the purposes of S2.7, the term ‘musical accompanying with special educational service’ means the provision of musical accompaniment to one or more students or staff in the course of teaching by another member of the academic staff in circumstances where the accompanist deploys educational expertise in repertoire development or expression for student concert or examination purposes, but does not include concert accompanying, vocal coaching or musical directing.
For musical accompanying, the part time (non-fractional) employee will be paid for each hour of accompanying as well as for one hour of preparation time for each hour of accompanying delivered:
S 2.8 Pre-tertiary music tuition
For the purposes of S2.8, the term ‘pre-tertiary music tuition’ means the provision of musical tuition to one or more participants who are students at a primary or secondary school (that is, up to the completion of a Higher School Certificate or equivalent).
S 2.9 Marking
For the purposes of this schedule the following definitions apply:
Standard marking is non contemporaneous marking that does not require a significant exercise of academic judgement such as where the marker is able to determine the correct answer by application of a marking template or where general commentary or feedback on a written piece of work is provided.
Complex marking is non contemporaneous marking that does require the significant exercise of academic judgement where for example detailed feedback and comments on complex assignments or examination papers and/or large body of work such as a thesis is required.
All marking other than that referred to in S2.4 and S2.6 above will be paid according to the following table, for all time worked.
In assessing the time allowed for marking beyond the contemporaneous marking completed as part of the lecturing and tutorial rate of pay, consideration should be taken of the time taken to undertake the marking based on the complexity of the marking in the context of the academic discipline involved.
The delegate should, if possible, seek to identify the nature and complexity of marking that is required for major pieces of work within their area and how the marking time may be calculated. As an indicative guide marking a standard essay in social sciences and the humanities should be calculated on the basis of 20 minutes for each 1,000 words, or longer for papers that include complex formulae, graphs or similar material.
S 2.10 Performance sessions – principal players
For the purposes of this Agreement the term ‘conduct performance sessions as a principal player’ means the provision of performance tuition, usually in a one-on-one situation with a performance student in circumstances where the casual/sessional academic staff member is formally designated as a ‘principal player’ by the Head, School of Music.
A casual/sessional academic required to conduct performance sessions as a principal player of a specified duration and the related directly associated non contact duties in the nature of preparation, reasonably contemporaneous marking and student consultation, will be paid at a rate for each hour of performance session delivered or presented, according to the following table.
All other performance tuition carried out by CSA staff members will be remunerated in accordance with S2.6 (Tutoring) or S2.12 (Other required academic activity).
