The Need For A Resource For Adjuncts

As someone who mentors Adjuncts, I hear the same statement over and over: “I was appointed to an Adjunct Instructor’s position and immediately thrown into the deep end of the pool with little or no support!”

Even those of us who have taught for many years are often looking for new ways to make ourselves more effective and more efficient. As someone who has had the benefit of having mentors throughout my career, and, as someone who mentors other adjunct/new faculty members, it occurred to me that there is a need for a place to gather as a community and to share best practices and resources. You’ll have access to Master Teachers, Podcasts, downloadable tools and guides, a community of faculty member and students and much more.

In A Nutshell

There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Adjuncts are continually creating new ways to be more effective. The Adjunct Connection is dedicated to creating, collecting and sharing these ideas, tools and techniques.

The Adjunct Connection offers you Free, à la carte Monthly Premium and Annual Premium Content – simply pick the plan that suits your needs and budget.
