This Guide is one outcome of a HEFCE funded, JISC/HEA managed, Open Educational Resource (OER) project. This Guide is designed to help you, the 'new' Business academic, through the early days and years of your new academic role. It is designed to: 1. answer questions frequently asked at this point 2. identify questions you need to ask 3. identify operational issues which are likely to arise from day one 4. provide suggestions and checklists on how to manage these issues It includes questions and answers linked to: 1. Entering Higher Education 2. The Academic as a Teacher 3. The Academic as a Researcher 4. The Academic as an Administrator It is long and inevitably generic too. To get the most out of it, treat it as a resource that you dip in and out of as needed and use the Appendices to help you to personalize it. It is underpinned by a belief that the key to long term success in Higher Education (HE) is linked to citizenship, respect for others and relationship building through NETWORKING.
