"The first part of the book features the voices of adjunct faculty who tell their stories of finding professional development and creating or connecting with communities of colleagues for mutual support. These adjunct voices represent a range of disciplinary perspectives, career stages, and institutional types. In the second section, the authors draw upon a benchmarking study of adjunct faculty developing programs, examine specific challenges and highlight successful practices. Institutions can support adjunct faculty through teaching academies and faculty learning communities; mentor programs; conference support; and adjunct faculty liaison positions. Topics discussed include: " Best professional development practices that support and benefit adjunct faculty." Faculty social isolation and community-building opportunities." An overview of changes affecting the academic workforce." An outline of issues and working conditions." Current demographics and types of adjunct faculty." Survey results from adjunct faculty developers." Adjunct faculty narratives featuring their professional development and community experiences." --Amazon. Show Less
