@kristine_tx @JeffreyKeefer Paralegal technology studies at @pulaskitech (via distance learning thru @Blackboard) #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:09
@lindathestar It is my fifth year teaching this subject. Enquiry-based learning & group work w 2 hour workshops. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx @JeffreyKeefer @pulaskitech @Blackboard Wonderful, welcome to #AdjunctChat! 8/5/14 16:10

@Comprof1 @lindathestar Do you get to change up your teaching? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:11
@LitProfSuz Hi #adjunctchat. I teach at 2 places, Adult Accelerated Humanities & Education. Now also editing. 8/5/14 16:11
@AdjunctChat Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is “What do you LIKE about adjuncting?” and some background information is http://t.co/SXmUWI73Va 8/5/14 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 8/5/14 16:12
@Comprof1 @lindathestar One thing I like about adjuncting is I’ve been asked to teach a wide range of courses I wouldn’t have thought to. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:12
@lindathestar @Comprof1 We have a workshop guide but there is space for individual creativity eg icebreakers, case studies, examples. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx @JeffreyKeefer @pulaskitech @Blackboard That must make for some interesting teaching stories #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:13
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz What is adult accelerated humanities? Sounds interesting. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer While some have already started, I want to make sure everybody can see our first Question to help guide our #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:14
@JeffreyKeefer Q1: What do you like about being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:14
@Comprof1 @lindathestar I sometimes feel I have more freedom in my class than tenure track faculty. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:14
@lindathestar @Comprof1 I’ve taught about 6 subjects in Education & same in Public Health. Good variety. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:15
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 It is an accelerated bachelor degree for working adults in multiple subjects. I teach the Humanities courses. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:15
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I prefer visiting professor because I also had access to research funding and colleagues/conferences. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:16
@lindathestar @Comprof1 Freedom in course or freedom to go home early when teaching is over? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:16
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Is it a cross discipline course? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer A1 I like student interaction. My classes are graduate and doctoral, so I think of my learners as early-stage colleagues #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:17
@AdjunctChat RT @JeffreyKeefer: Q1: What do you like about being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:17
@Comprof1 @lindathestar Freedom in course. My current uni requires office hours & we get student evals which I need to continue contract. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:18
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer I’m trying to think of adjunct/casual specific benefits. Teaching’s overall benefit is the students! #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer A1: I also like the access to the library and database resources #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:18
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I find when I have a good class of students, I enjoy learning from them. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:19
@injenuity RT @JeffreyKeefer: Q1: What do you like about being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:19
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 I teach Intro to Literature; English; Romantisim; Modernism; Contemporary Studies. Some are cross discipline #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer A1: I like the entire teaching and learning process; while my courses are all applied, they do allow for some theory, too #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Last yr in my Speech Comm class, had a group of inner city 1st gen uni students. Really impressed w/ them #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Can you think of smething off-hand you have learned from your students? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@lindathestar @Comprof1 As a sex educator (which isn’t what I’m teaching) I warn them I use sex ed examples to make up for lack of SRE #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@LitProfSuz A1) Although it can be hectic, I like the challenge of picking up & designing new to me courses #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Learned what their life was like which is so diff than mine in small town/more rural NY. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Some people teach as an adjunct / casual for the money, too #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:21
@lindathestar @Comprof1 It’s good to have freedom to use professional & life skills in teaching. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar I KNOW the money is often not great, but I have heard of people supplementing FT work or retirement in this way #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:21
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Yeah, I would be lost w/o these resources, limited though they r. Also have access to IRB to continue research #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar I do not teach for the money; it is not quite enough to make it worth the time and effort. It is more a passion #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @lindathestar Can you talk more about this? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:23
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer The money is paying my mortgage right now. Very handy. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:23
@LitProfSuz A1) As a grad stdnt, it was good to get experience teaching in HE for CV #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @lindathestar I am proposing a new course, something I have been quite interested in teaching, and it is a gap now #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx What do you like about teaching as an #adjunct? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:24
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I used some of concepts from my dissertation & was able to get different perspective on group comm from discuss #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz A1: and now? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:24
@robinyap @JeffreyKeefer Hey I get to join part of #adjunctchat today. A1 the students, the knowledge transfer, the aha moments 8/5/14 16:25
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Being flexible and open to exploring new topics is stimulating and fun. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:25
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Being flexible and open to exploring new topics is stimulating and fun. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:25
@LitProfSuz A1) I like the more flexible schedule. Not expected to be an campus like FTT. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer @robinyap Welcome to #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer @robinyap Can you talk more about what you have in mind about knowledge transfer with students? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:26
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar I love creating a new course.Sometimes difficult to convince dept head. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:26
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 There is a freedom in not having tenure I could be risking by being adventurous. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:26
@Comprof1 @robinyap @JeffreyKeefer Your aha moments or students? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:27
@JeffreyKeefer Q1: What do you like about being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member? #AdjunctChat #ECRchat #phdchat #auscasuals 8/5/14 16:27
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Well, I have more than enough experience for my CV, but I am expanding my repertoire #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:27
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Although if I had tenure I’d still want to be creative and pushing boundaries for best teaching #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:27
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Building CVs can be engaging, but can you talk more about why or how you are trying to expand it? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:27
@Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer Or trying new courses that maybe don’t fit a single dept. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Ahh, the risks of freedom! #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer Let’s proceed with Q2 #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer Q2: What difference do you think your work and commitment makes? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:29
@lindathestar @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’m not sure if as a casual I could introduce a new course. There is one I see a need for… #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:29
@Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer Me too. Different type of risk. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar @Comprof1 Interesting how this seems to relate to the teaching vs. research dualism, if such a thing exists #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:30
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Can’t say it is a plan,but I am frequently picking up new classes. I’m a generalist-can teach across disciplines #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @robinyap Remember to use the #AdjunctChat tag so everybody can see it! 8/5/14 16:30
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer The difference is purely for the students. Many say I’m the only one that knows their name. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar @Comprof1 Have you considered suggesting it? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:30
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Not paid for research or writing time as a casual :( #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:31
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer As a FTT, I might not get that opportunity to teach across areas. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:31
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I should. You’ve inspired me now. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:31
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Many TT in dept have 100+ students and TA’s. Time only to get to know grad students #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Yes, those FTT faculty are often too focused to be broad #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar @Comprof1 Excellent! Let us know how it goes!! #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:33
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer I get great evaluations. I aim to develop good practitioners and encourage wide thinking. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:33
@Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer Actually, new course always gives me a good excuse to do research (otherwise not paid for). #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer A2: I think a difference I make with my students is I try to bridge the research / practice divide with my expertise in both #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:34
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Actually, Q2 is what makes me question continuing as adjunct. sometimes don’t feel there is any difference. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:34
@bgrassbluecrab @Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer generally not paid for class prep either, though #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:35
@JeffreyKeefer @bgrassbluecrab @Comprof1 @lindathestar Yes, this is not something to do for the money, alas. That is another conversation! #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:35
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Then again, lots of people do seem to get up and do their jobs every day without thinking about making a difference #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:36
@Comprof1 @bgrassbluecrab @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer True (although sometimes if specialized may get higher pay), but good excuse.#AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 A2: I thrive on mission-driven organizations and cultures, so that is what gets me out of bed in the morning #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @bgrassbluecrab Welcome to #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@Comprof1 @bgrassbluecrab @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer I love research so if I need to research to teach a class, I don’t feel “stale” #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer The difference I make for students is as a teacher – adjunct or not does not matter #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@AdjunctChat Q2: What difference do you think your work and commitment makes? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Can you talk more about what you have in mind? A2 #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:38
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Just got a compliment from FT colleague, my research/publishing is spurring other FT to do it. Shucks! #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:38
@kristine_tx A2 Provides #practical experience to my #students while giving back to my profession. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:39

@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer It’s an approach to teaching irrespective of conditions … tho’ as conditions worsen I give less😞 #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:42
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer Thanks for including me today. Have to get up & go teach now. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:43
@Comprof1 Q2 #adjunctchat also like workg out solutions to problems students have or may have. I love they come back & say remember when. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:43

@LitProfSuz A2) As compared to my FTT advisor, I think I have more work/life balance. Less pressure, committees, campus time #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:44
@Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer You need to. Also I think its important for students to understand ed system & how it works. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:44
@JeffreyKeefer Q3: How do you reconcile this with the challenges being an adjunct faculty? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:45
@4KM May I drop in late to #AdjunctChat? 8/5/14 16:46
@Comprof1 Q2 sometimes I have an impact on my colleagues getting them to see diff perspective that is less academic #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:46
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Can you clarify this? Reconcile what? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:47
@4KM A1 May be repeating, but I like seeing the world through many lenses including scholar and practitioner #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:47
@Comprof1 RT @4KM: A1 May be repeating, but I like seeing the world through many lenses including scholar and practitioner #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:48
@4KM @Comprof1 It may be an illusion, but I think I can see academic cultures better by virtue of being a partial outsider #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:48
@JeffreyKeefer @4KM Of course; you are always welcome #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:49
@4KM @JeffreyKeefer I can do administrative work, but prefer to spend more time immersed in the learning process #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:50

@bgrassbluecrab @4KM I was just thinking the same thing. It’s really hard to generalize. Adjuncting is usu. part of more complex package #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:52
@4KM A3 Some adjuncts get pay comparable to full time faculty; some get a lot of respect; some aren’t 2nd class citizens #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:52
@Comprof1 @robinyap Any colleagues? I always went outside of dept. Also, i take advantage of training for network opportunities #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:53
@LitProfSuz A3) I haven’t reconciled. Some days I’m delighted, other days frustrated. Try to focus on gratitude. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:53
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Just when I have problem class or problem w/ dept. something comes up to offset it (i.e. research opp) #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:55
@4KM A3 I have met tenured faculty who are miserable. A bit like the kid who becomes a lawyer because his father wanted him to #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:55

@YourDailyArt @JeffreyKeefer I like not being obligated to do extra work or committees but also waiting for 1st pay makes for a long summer. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:55
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz my adjunct experience has made me very marketable to diff depts as adjunct but not for TT :( #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:56
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Wonder sometimes if FT in one place might be easier. Get more respect. Have an affiliation etc. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:57
@4KM Humans jump to conclusions when marginalized. Because I’m [fill in blank with woman or young or old or adjunct...] #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:57

@bgrassbluecrab .@4KM that’s true, but i think it’s a fair generalization to say that adjunct is a marginalized title these days #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:59

@4KM I’m a bit distanced @bgrassbluecrab That term isn’t used where I work; adjunct friends give diverse perspectives on respect #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:02

#AdjunctChat Aug 5 ~ What do you LIKE about adjuncting? (@JeffreyKeefer)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, August 5 at 4:00pm EDT is:

What do you LIKE about adjuncting?

Let’s be honest–being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member in higher education is without its challenges. This is part of the theme (and need) of the COCAL XI Conference in New York City taking place this week. Not to minimize these, there surely must be something that those who engage in part-time, temporary instruction LIKE about their work? That is the focus of this #AdjunctChat.

The chat will be led and facilitated by @JeffreyKeefer.

Our discussion will focus on these questions:

Q1: What do you like about being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member? #AdjunctChat

Q2: What difference do you think your work and commitment makes? #AdjunctChat

Q3: How do you reconcile this with the challenges being an adjunct faculty? #AdjunctChat

All adjunct, contingent, part-time, visiting, casual, and non-tenure track instructors, along with their allies and friends in higher education, are welcome to #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, August 5, from 4:00-5:00pm EDT.

Even if you do not readily fit into the above, #AdjunctChat is open to all! The more perspectives, the better we all learn with and from one another.

Can’t make it during the live 1-hour chat?
Post any time during the day about it
to add to and engage with the conversation.

Want to facilitate an #AdjunctChat? You do not have to be an expert on the topic, but rather have an interest in something related to adjunct experiences with a desire to facilitate a live Twitter chat. More information about it may be found at How Can I Facilitate an #AdjunctChat?

@JeffreyKeefer @Charlesknight @Blaise7 @MMstrikesback @melovell Great; you are always welcome! #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:01
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer knock on wood, the storms have stayed south for me. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:02
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 We do what we can! #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:04
@JeffreyKeefer Today’s #AdjunctChat is about to begin on Best Practices with Mobile Tech with @Comprof http://t.co/fuF4PK9Ja9 7/15/2014 16:06
@Comprof1 While we wait for people to find us for #adjunctchat u might want to look at BLS’s trello planning for mobile learng https://t.co/8EanA3zjbK 7/15/2014 16:06
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I have tried to use Trello, though somehow do not find it intuitive for projects #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I have tried to use Trello, though somehow do not find it intuitive for projects #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Perhaps you will be able to shed some light on why not! #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:09
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Really? I find it very easy. Maybe its the way I think. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:10
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I found with my students, I gave assignment, with checklists. Then moved it as it came due. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:11
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I found with my students, I gave assignment, with checklists. Then moved it as it came due. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:11
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Are you a linear or spatial thinker? I tend to think spatially so trello works great. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Did you have your students use Trello with you? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I move back and forth; spatial when brainstorming and then linear once organized (and back if needed) #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Perhaps it is just the two of us for #AdjunctChat at this moment? 7/15/2014 16:14
@LitProfSuz Hey #adjunctchat, seems a little quiet today. Polar vortex got your tongue? 7/15/2014 16:15
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Yes, I used it to share resources, class activities. Esp ones where students left class room #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:16
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I also had groups set up boards for long term projects. Helped them to learn to plan. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:16
@LitProfSuz I haven’t specifically used mob tech, but am hoping to this summer. But just basic use – record & post pic/video #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:17
@Comprof1 Q 1: 1) Do you allow the use of mobile technology in your courses? Why or why not? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:17
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Glad you could make it. Maybe just the storms. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:17

@AdjunctChat RT @Comprof1: Q 1: 1) Do you allow the use of mobile technology in your courses? Why or why not? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:19
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Is that in class or in general? Do you permit use of tablets, smart phones, or laptop in class? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Hey, you! How are things these days? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Perhaps you will show us a bit about how you use Trello with your classes . . . ;-) #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:19
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 A1) I don’t know enough about mobile tech to design activities around it. I use it all the time personally, though #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 A1: I use Twitter with my classes, though oddly find the uptake slow at times #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:20
@LitProfSuz Hmm.. maybe a definition of mobile tech would be in order. I was just thinking smart phones. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:22
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Do you let your students take notes with it? So you feel that to allow use you need more knowledge of mobile tech? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:23
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 I don’t require, nor mind technology in class. Though I have asked a few students to close Facebook #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz I let my students use their devices in class as well #AdjunctChat #SCPSRPM 7/15/2014 16:23
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Good point. Mobile tech can be any device that is portable. laptops, cell phones in general (not just smart phones) #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:24
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Yeah, many students have some sort of tech. I intro Twitter as PLN for my pre-service teachers #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:24
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Ereaders can also be included in mobile devices. #adjunctchat Also, more recently smart pens. 7/15/2014 16:25
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Do you activitly encourage them to use the devices? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:26
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Do you activitly encourage them to use the devices? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:26
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer I found my students were looking up info more and more, so I decided to include that in class. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:26
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Some students are getting used to having e-textbooks. They made others envious with search features! :^) #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:26
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 I use Twitter as the base of my #PLN, though I do not use that term with my students #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:27
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Intro to Twitter is to help them develop professional networks, not so much about the technology #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:27
@Comprof1 Example of course use of trellis #adjunctchat http://t.co/HSNKHL0pz5 7/15/2014 16:29
@LitProfSuz For Intro to Child lit, stds created blogs rather than paper bibliographies 4 required text sets to allow access for classmates #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:29
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Misconception that “mobile tech” is about teaching the tech. I focus on mobility of learning #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer RT @Comprof1: Example of course use of trellis #adjunctchat http://t.co/KoXxzKtxh2 7/15/2014 16:31
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Mobile tech allows for learning outside classroom, support of learning w/ tech studnt own themselves #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Thanks for sharing that; can you unpack it a little? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:31
@LitProfSuz I use Blackboard @ 1 place & Angel @ other for online posting/discussion/etc. Feedback was I was 1 of only a few that did. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Is Trello the main tool you use online for projects and similar communication? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:31
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer BTW first time I used my smartphone camera! #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:32
@KateMfD Morning #AdjunctChat, here and listening. 7/15/2014 16:32
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer No. I also use http://t.co/3HcwqcCQdP and sometimes blackboard or facebook depending on student preference. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:33
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’d put up previews of resources for class or after/during class resources students asked for or found helpful #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:34
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I take pics of class activities/charts/white board & post for stds 2 access later. Surprises them! #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:34
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer That’s what my students do also. That is a good use of mobile tech. Also, notice studts do the same #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:36
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Helps with flow of class for students who may want more detail. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:36
@Comprof1 Q2 What are some challenges in using mobile technology (especially for adjuncts/contingent faculty) #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:37
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer “Announcements” summarize class activities, post all handouts – absent Stdnts responsible to get it #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:37
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer I also use mobile tech to look things up on internet when I have something on projector. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD As always, we love to have you! #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:38
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Great use! Also a better use of your time. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Yet another site I do not know / use #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:39
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 A2) Learning the program,each school has a different platform! And, differing institutional & student expectations #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Do you use the free or paid version? #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:39

@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Yes. That’s why I would rather use something outside of uni’s options that I can take with me. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:40
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Yes. That’s why I would rather use something outside of uni’s options that I can take with me. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 A2 One challenge I faced over the years is a “NO” from administration; many are terrified of SoMe in the world #AdjunctChat #FERPA 7/15/2014 16:41
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz True. Although if you are teaching same course, you can replicate both. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:41
@Comprof1 @KateMfD Great to have you here. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:42
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Stdts have expressed dislike of multiple platforms.Want 1 stop shopping for all classes.So, I don’t go outside uni’s #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:42
@Comprof1 A2) my problem is getting students to focus on me & my directions rather than relying on tech all the time. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:43
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 I haven’t been that fortunate. :^) #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:43
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz My explanation is they will never have the same platform for each job they go to. often multiple in same org. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:44
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz I told them they had to start learning new tech to stay current. Get used to it! #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:45
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz I find it unfortunate that the uni platform usually results in students losing access after the class finishes #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:46
@Comprof1 A2) I also find they expect me “on call” 24/7 Now I have online office hrs which seem to work. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:46
@KateMfD The issue raised by many #auscasuals using mobile tech is time. #AdjunctChat 7/15/2014 16:47
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer In my places, they are open until student leaves or graduates. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:47
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz True. Then they lose access to possible pieces for job portfolio. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:47
@Comprof1 I’m going to skip to Q4) What boundaries do/might you need to create for effective use of mobile technology with your students? #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:48
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Good point. I hadn’t thought of that before. #adjunctchat 7/15/2014 16:48

#AdjunctChat July 22 ~ Needs / Expectations for Activist Contingent Gatherings (@slicksean @PrecariousFac @VCVaile)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, July 22 at 4:00pm EDT is:

Needs / Expectations for Activist Contingent Gatherings: #cocalXI #altCOCAL

Are you thinking about attending COCAL XI in New York City in August, 2014? With a conference theme “Shaping an Equitable & Democratic Future For Higher Education—The Way Forward,” we have to wonder about what you need or want from such an event. That is the focus of this #AdjunctChat.

The chat will be led and facilitated by @slicksean, @PrecariousFac , and @VCVaile.

Our discussion will focus on these questions:

Q1: Are you planning to attend #cocalXI? #AdjunctChat #altCOCAL

Q2: If you plan to attend #cocalXI what do you want or expect? #AdjunctChat #altCOCAL

Q3: If you do not plan to attend #cocalXI why not? #AdjunctChat #altCOCAL

Q4: What are some next steps for activist adjuncts? #cocalXI #AdjunctChat #altCOCAL

All adjunct, contingent, part-time, visiting, casual, and non-tenure track instructors, along with their allies and friends in higher education, are welcome to #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, July 22, from 4:00-5:00pm EDT.

Even if you do not readily fit into the above, #AdjunctChat is open to all! The more perspectives, the better we all learn with and from one another.

Can’t make it during the live 1-hour chat?

#AdjunctChat July 15 ~ Best Practices with Mobile Tech (@Comprof)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, July 15 at 4:00pm EDT is:

Best Practices with Mobile Tech

Background information, the context, and discussion question about this topic may be found on the post Best Practices with Mobile Tech: #adjunctchat Tuesday, July 15. The chat will be led and facilitated by Virginia Yonkers @Comprof1.

To quote from the post that @Comprof1 wrote for today’s chat:

In this week’s #adjunctchat, we will trade some best practices for using mobile technology (m-learning) both in traditional classes and online classes. We will look at the use of mobile technology in academics as a whole and the challenges for adjuncts specifically.

All adjunct, contingent, part-time, visiting, casual, and non-tenure track instructors, along with their allies and friends in higher education, are welcome to #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, July 15, from 4:00-5:00pm EDT.

Even if you do not readily fit into the above, #AdjunctChat is open to all! The more perspectives, the better we all learn with and from one another.

Can’t make it during the live 1-hour chat?
