Free kick at Flinders

Andrew Miller was on ABC Radio Adelaide yesterday warning against the dangers of teaching-specialist positions, especially at Flinders University, where he is NTEU branch-president. While he acknowledged “well-designed” schemes were useful he worries that teaching-specialists could be denied the time to keep their scholarship current and that managements could use them to reduce overall staff. It was standard stuff for a campus audience and a case Dr Miller had no problem making, not least because nobody from Flinders management was on-air with him. The ABC said it asked but Flinders said no one was available. Apparently, it was graduation day and the VC and deputies were busy.
