The Adjunct Professor's Guide to Success: Surviving and Thriving in the College Classroom
In recent years, colleges and universities have markedly increased their employment of adjunct professors. Unfortunately, many adjunct professors enter the classroom with little or no training in teaching and classroom management techniques and suffer frustrations which are painful to both themselves and their institutions! This book provides the guidance and addresses the issues imperative to the adjunct professor. Each chapter addresses classroom survival issues with appropriate context and bulleted lists of "Do's and Don'ts." The perspective of "Through the Adjunct's Eyes," near the end of each chapter, shares common classroom successes and challenges. "Tips for Thriving," a bulleted review of key points and suggested additional readings, concludes each chapter. The book concludes with chapters on self-evaluation and techniques for building a part-time career in academe. Anyone who is interested in how to begin their approach to teaching.
