Follow Me Print has been rolled out to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Simply tap on your staff card to the reader (tap card on/off), select the print job you need and collect your documents on any follow me enabled printer – don’t forget to tap off your staff card!

Education Day will be held on Wednesday 22 February 2017. Attendance is mandatory for all academic staff, and the 9am-10am session, "Positive Workplace Culture - Addressing Bullying and Harassment" is mandatory for all staff (professional staff included).
Casuals Academic staff are invited and will be paid for their attendance. Morning tea and lunch will be provided. Stewart Nestel is the contact for any questions
For every guest invited to SCM, paid or unpaid, an online form (see Guidelines on the SCM intranet) captures any preliminary information about the arrangement, ideally at least one month in advance. Faculty professional staff then proceed with logistical and artistic support as required.
Please note that two months may be required if the guest does not hold a Australian or NZ passport and does not have a 400 or 420 visa.
Programing rooms on staff and student cards is now processed by Security Services on Main Campus to align with Uni Policy. Rodney Boatwright (Facilities Support Officer) will no longer complete this task. Grant Crompton (Campus Manager) and Guy McEwan (Venue Ops Manager) will manage this process. Rodney will be able to check card access. Click here for more information.
Travel Partner is the University’s new single, preferred travel management company; a collaboration between the University and Business Travel by STA. For more information see our Q&A and 2016 Travel and Expense Project
The Conservatorium receives a high volume of requests for student musicians. Kate Drain coordinates these requests, so kindly email Kate with the requestor’s contact details and she will advertise the requirement to all students.
Every non-Australian visitor requires the appropriate visa for the activities they perform at the Con, whether paid or unpaid. The University’s Immigration Officer requires 8 weeks’ notice in advance of intent to engage a visitor, especially where a visitor will be requiring a University-sponsored Entertainment (420) visa. Contact Heggy for more information.
The 2016 SCM Annual Research Day focused on the SCM Research Strategy, changes to HDR processes, library support for research, industry and community engagement, research reporting and grants and the question of what artistic research is. To revisit the presentations, please view the presentation slides here.
The University is fully committed to providing an environment free of bullying, harassment and discrimination and respects the right of all staff and students to be treated with dignity. The University’s policy on this matter, enacted last year, is at the core of the Strategic Plan’s cultural values - see pages 43-44.
In order to prevent or effectively resolve any instances at an early stage, this session will help all staff to understand what bullying, harassment and discrimination is and what support is available.
Given the health and safety risk to those affected, the Dean has deemed attendance at this session to be mandatory for all staff, including the professional team. It is the opening session of Education Day at 9am - 10am on Wednesday 22 February in Recital Hall East. Please schedule this important commitment in your diary.
Please click here the UoS template for Semester 1, 2017.
Please note that there are a few things in here that are new, and if you are using your own UoS template, you must include:
* The links between Graduate Qualities and what you are doing in this UoS must be explicitly stated and explained.
* The new Standard Assessment Table. You must use this and you are not free to change the wording etc. (This is mandated by the Learning and Teaching Policy).
* The new Anonymous Assessment provision – students are not allowed to put their name on the document they submit, just their student number. This is for text-based assignments, and obviously won’t work for recitals, performances, program notes, composition portfolios, scaffolded assignments etc. The point of this is to avoid bias as much as possible.
It is probably going to be easier for you to use this template, but up to you.
Necessary maintenance will be carried out on Saturday 21 January. There may be interruptions to some online services during this time.
Getting service support just got simpler, with one new number to contact Campus Security, ICT, Human Resources, Campus Infrastructure & Services, Finance, and the University Switchboard. Phone (02) 9351 2000 or remember the extension 12000 on-campus.
