Learning and Teaching Webinar | Building resilience in your academic career: Advice for theology and divinity academics
Friday, 26 May, 2:00 pm–4:00 pm AEST
This event is part of the Learning and Teaching Webinars 2023 series.
Dr Rosemary Dewerse
Academic Dean, Research Co-ordinator, Doctor of Ministry Co-Ordinator
Uniting College for Leadership and Theology
In this seminar we will hear something of Rosemary’s story and her top tips – practical and dispositional – for navigating the joys and struggles of a theological career in today’s realities. There will be lots of opportunity to ask questions and to share our own wisdom with each other.
Dr Rosemary Dewerse is a theologian from Aotearoa New Zealand who has taught in a number of areas in the disciplines of theological education in four countries, supervised doctoral students, and published extensively, often in collaboration. Most of her theological career (after beginning life as a high school music teacher) has been made up of fixed term and casual contracts, with a couple of redundancies thrown in. She has spent the last five years working in secular and not-for-profit settings until being given the opportunity to return to theology – as Academic Dean and Missional Research and Doctoral Coordinator at UCLT in Adelaide from 2023.Register here
