Rob Kitchin – Balancing and redistributing ‘additional’ academic work

Rob Kitchin has a very good piece on ‘Balancing and redistributing ‘additional’ academic work‘ at his The View from the Blue House blog. Beginning with an absolutely terrifying list of requests to review, examine, interview, contribute etc. (and I thought I was asked frequently), he questions what is an acceptable number to do, and then moves from this to discuss how those making requests should try to diversify those they ask much more. Worth a read – though the solution needs to be collective, and it will be interesting to see what comes of this discussion.
