Weaving Well Prepared Adjunct Faculty into the Instructional Culture

Weaving Well Prepared Adjunct Faculty into the Instructional Culture

Poster Session from "Weaving Patterns of Practice," 2008 POD Network/NCSPOD Conference. Adjunct faculty members provide colleges and universities potential scheduling flexibility and increased curriculum potency. Many however are initially ill-prepared to manage the array of expectations of their students, administrators and colleagues. Although most institutions provide insufficient support for their part-timers, growing number of institutions have installed an array of preparatory and support initiatives to meet their needs. These include structured orientations, courses in basic teaching and course management skills, mentoring, and recognition practices for exemplary work. This session highlights best practices from an array of institutional types, and the results that have been achieved through those practices.
