Event Description

Learn How to Support Your Adjunct Faculty — The Lifeline of Your College

Instructional costs have steadily increased over the last few decades and the amount of courses taught by part-time faculty members in colleges and universities throughout North America has increased as well. From business leaders to state legislature, many have challenged higher education to assist an ever-growing number of students and align educational programs with economic goals as well. These new initiatives are often placed upon adjunct faculty as a strategic component of the implementation process. Adjunct faculty members are a critical component to critical courses and provide a wealth of expertise that many full-time faculty members may not possess; their flexible evening and weekend schedule allows them to widen their class schedule to serve the time and place challenges that students face.

Many colleges and universities are finding that supporting their part-time faculty members is imperative for the overall success of the institution. When not only full time faculty but adjunct faculty are properly supported and trained in a flexible way, overall instructional goals will be consistently met. One of the barriers that North American institutions of higher learning face is that several institutions are so diverse in mission, culture, student demographics that there is no one method to effectively serve the institution’s adjunct faculty. Most adjunct faculty members are employed in other careers, have family obligations, teach during odd hours and locations, and lack the opportunity to engage in professional development opportunities created with full-time faculty in mind.

Join this session, where expert speaker Dr. Keita Joy will equip you with the best practices to properly support your adjunct faculty. The best practices highlighted will offer practical tools for enhancing student achievement and improving accountability measures. Your adjunct faculty are now the life line of your college/university and with them having such a diverse schedule and life, it is paramount to learn new ways to support and assist them in meeting the school’s mission and vision without overwhelming them. This session will provide you with sample meeting formats, conference layouts, and topics to discuss with your adjunct faculty.
