The Unit Convenor is an important academic leadership role within the Faculty of Arts. To help Unit Convenors manage key tasks when preparing for teaching the Faculty has developed a 'Handbook for Unit Convenors'. This handbook is designed to assist Convenors with functional aspects of the role and to offer insights into the policies and principles which underpin unit coordination.
