PDA guide

Selection of student and teacher

Students undertaking a unit in performance will nominate their preferred teacher from the list of approved Performance Teaching Fellows. Students may engage a teacher who is not already listed with approval of the Performance Convenor. Teachers who would like to apply to become a Performance Teaching Fellow are referred to the information and application process available on the Apply to teach page.

Applying and submitting choice of teacher

Once enrolled in a performance unit, students will be provided access to information about the PDA including terms of use, the application form, application and payment deadlines and the acquittal process by way of the School of Music Performance Handbook (accessed through Wattle). Students should negotiate directly with the Performance Teaching Fellows about their plan for the semester prior to submitting their application.

Approvals and notification (students)

Once a student is correctly enrolled, updated their band details on ISIS, and their PDA activity has been approved, funds will be disbursed directly to students. Teachers should provide their students with an invoice including the terms of payment, and students will pay them directly. There is no contractual agreement required between Performance Teaching Fellows and ANU. New PDA approval (above) must be formally confirmed each semester.
