Excerpt: In 2004 I decided to apply for promotion from Senior Lecturer to Associate Professor. Mine is an Australian research intensive university. Having reviewed the promotion literature, I decided to seek promotion based on an ‘outstanding’ contribution to teaching and learning. At the time the university was expending far greater efforts to improve teaching and learning after rating very poorly on a national student survey. Having made a contribution to the furthering of teaching and learning, the Pro-Vice Chancellor (Education) and the head of the recently established teaching and learning unit were quick to offer their support to my application. Indeed the Pro-Vice Chancellor volunteered to be one of my referees.
