@jeffreykeefer @N1academy How about talking about what this experience is like closing a college? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:17
@jeffreykeefer @N1academy In some ways, that experience is just the opposite of today’s planned #AdjunctChat topic, and may make a valuable contrast. 9/2/2014 16:18
@jeffreykeefer @AndrewR_Physics Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the #AdjunctChat blog http://t.co/8ovnvNL5NX 9/2/2014 16:19
@jeffreykeefer @AndrewR_Physics Too bad you could not join the synchronous session, I would like to hear more about your use of clickers #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:20
@jeffreykeefer @AndrewR_Physics In some ways clickers seem a bit impersonal, though I have not used them or seen them done well #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:20
@jeffreykeefer @AndrewR_Physics I have seen clickers used rather poorly, and that was my only hands-on experience #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:21
@jeffreykeefer Q2 Have you taught this before? If so, how often? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:21
@jeffreykeefer A2 I have taught this research course many times before, though am always looking to improve it #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:24
@jeffreykeefer A2 I find many of my learners come to the course with . . . let’s just say . . . mixed experiences with it previously #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:24
@jeffreykeefer Q3 Where do you look for new or different ideas to teach? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:25
@jeffreykeefer Q3 Where do you look for new or different ideas to teach? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:25
@jeffreykeefer A3 I look anyplace I can for new ideas, and even though today’s #AdjunctChat is a bit quiet, I usually find some really useful ones here. 9/2/2014 16:26
@AndrewR_Physics .@jeffreykeefer #adjunctchat I talk for 10 mins then set clicker Q. Students think/calc their own answer& click response anonymously 1/2 9/2/2014 16:26
@AndrewR_Physics @jeffreykeefer #Adjunctchat Then students discuss & critique their answers with neighbours for a few mins. Then revote. *Usually* more right 9/2/2014 16:28
@jeffreykeefer @AndrewR_Physics Ahh; what options for click types are there? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:28
@jeffreykeefer Q4 What new things are you hoping to try in your courses this semester? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:29
@jeffreykeefer @AndrewR_Physics Are these clickers devices you bring in, or are they available via smartphone? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:29
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer Sorry I’m late. I teach tonight & with bad weather & slow computer took a while to get online. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:31
@jeffreykeefer A4 I am planning to use Twitter more directly with my students #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:31
@jeffreykeefer A4 I will ask them to find people who are working in their research areas #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:31
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer @AndrewR_Physics I have decided to use index cards instead of clickers but my students like both. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:32
@jeffreykeefer A4 I will also communicate more intentionally with my learners via Direct Tweets, something that makes phone texting obsolete #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:32
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 Always glad to see you! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:32
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer That’s a great idea. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:32
@AndrewR_Physics @jeffreykeefer #Adjunctchat Used to use Turning Point dedicated clicker system – more sophisticated – but cost $25-50 for clicker. Too much 9/2/2014 16:33
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 I think lots of people are in your same boat today, so to speak! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:33
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer I’m teaching speech presentation this semester. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:33
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 @AndrewR_Physics I use index cards when I randomly assign groups; I write numbers and ask students to choose a card! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:33
@jeffreykeefer @AndrewR_Physics Wow, that does sound clostly #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:34
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer I’m going to try something I learned at uni retreat to assess level of knowledge of speech presentation. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:34
@AndrewR_Physics @Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer #adjunctchat I could use index cards, but Socrative does the counting for me #lazy Same principles! 9/2/2014 16:34
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer You have attributes that you ask students to categorize. Method of cat. will indicate level of knowledge of sub #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:35
@AndrewR_Physics @jeffreykeefer #Adjunctchat there are still other systems where they charge a subscription per course to the student. Not acceptable to me! 9/2/2014 16:36
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 Great! What level? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:36
@Comprof1 @AndrewR_Physics @jeffreykeefer That’s why I use index cards. keep price down. I do it with students groups. #adjunctchat Preview Q on BLS. 9/2/2014 16:37
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 Can you give an example? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:37
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer It’s a gateway course. Problem w/ variety of skills & speaking experience. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:38
@AndrewR_Physics @Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer #Adjunctchat At prev uni ALL first year sci courses agreed to use them. We got deal on price & students happy 9/2/2014 16:38
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer I’ll give them speech problems (too long, not able to hear speaker, no gestures) then have students categorize #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:40
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 Ahh, interesting #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:40
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 Ahh, interesting #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:40

@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer Students that use >sophisticated (audience problems, rhetoric, style) will have deeper understanding of speech #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:42
@jeffreykeefer A4 I also hope my students will locate sources of evidence for questions they articulate, and then to ask them directly #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:42
@jeffreykeefer Q5 How will you determine if they are successful? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:42
@jeffreykeefer @LitProfSuz Summer? What summer!?!?! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:43
@LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat I am teaching 2 new to me courses and 2 famik ar courses. I want to be more intentional @ formative assessments 9/2/2014 16:43
@jeffreykeefer @LitProfSuz Between my FT job and the two courses I taught, I did not see any time off at all. I know, balance . . . #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:43
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer I choose one thing each semester to work on/try out. More and I get overwhelmed. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:44
@jeffreykeefer @LitProfSuz Perfect! That is related to Q5! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:45
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz I always start with outcomes, then design backwards. First what are goals/what I want them to be able to do. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:45
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 So your new thing this course is related to categorization, right? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:46
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 I have been using @Trello heavily in the past 3 weeks (thank you!), and want to explore that with my students, too #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:47
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz New courses are tough b/c it takes long to develop outcomes Once I have good goals/outcomes, course comes together #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:47
@jeffreykeefer @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Wow, do I sense an instructional design process here!?!? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:47
@LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat A colleague & I will conduct a self-study of a new course. Thst should be interesting. 9/2/2014 16:48
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer Correct. I’m going to try it 3 times this semester to see if learning is deeper. #adjunctchat 1st is tonight. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:48
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer @LitProfSuz My teaching training was based on experiential learning. This is also what I taught my ed students. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:49
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz That sounds interesting. What methodology will you be using? What is the goal of the study? #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:50
@jeffreykeefer @JakeGrad @dpla Have not seen that resource before; can you talk about it? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:51
@Comprof1 @jeffreykeefer @LitProfSuz It also helps when everything goes south in class (i.e tech outage) to know where you were headed. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:52
@jeffreykeefer @LitProfSuz Would love to hear more about it! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:52
@jeffreykeefer I will need to leave #AdjunctChat on time tonight as my course begins in an hour. 9/2/2014 16:53

#AdjunctChat Sept 2 ~ “What are you doing this year to keep your teaching fresh?” (@JeffreyKeefer)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, September 2 at 4:00pm EDT is:

What are you doing this year to keep your teaching fresh?

September is often considered back to school time, even for those of us who may teach odd schedules or all year long. Out with the old, and in with the new!

Have you taught the same classes before but want to do something new or different, even if it is just to maintain your own interests and passions (not to mention to meet the ever changing needs of our college-age or adult learners)? This #AdjunctChat may just be what you need to share what you are doing or try to pick up something new. Hey, even just chatting with other adjuncts at the beginning of September may just help us to not feel so . . . alone.

The chat will be led and facilitated by @JeffreyKeefer and will be guided by these questions:

Q1 What are you teaching in the fall semester? #AdjunctChat

Q2 Have you taught this before? If so, how often? #AdjunctChat

Q3 Where do you look for new or different ideas to teach? #AdjunctChat

Q4 What new things are you hoping to try in your courses this semester? #AdjunctChat

Q5 How will you determine if they are successful? #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, September 2, 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.

@JeffreyKeefer @gusreview #AdjunctChat

@whowewilltobe @fabianbanga We technically have one adjunct seat on the senate. Not enough for 78% of the faculty. #AdjunctChat 8/19/14 16:33

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, August 19 at 4:00pm EDT is:

Innovative Ways to Include the Collective Adjunct Voice in the National Higher Education Conversation.

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 19, 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?

@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

@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

@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 My passion for the topic, and connection to students is the same if adjunct or on contract #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:40
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer My passion for the topic, and connection to students is the same if adjunct or on contract #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:40
@robinyap @JeffreyKeefer A2 Applicability of the theories since I’m a practitioner-academic. Sharing experiences is key #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:40
@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
@4KM @JeffreyKeefer Thanks Jeffrey #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:50

@VCVaile RT @4KM: Every time I join one of these chats I’m reminded there are 52 flavors of adjunct #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:52
@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
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz But that is currently difficult to find. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:58
@Comprof1 RT @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 16:59
@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
@Comprof1 @4KM how do you change this? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:00

@JeffreyKeefer We are coming to the end of today’s #AdjunctChat with lots of food for thought. 8/5/14 17:00

@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
@VCVaile @4KM @Comprof1 Edward Said said the same about viewing any culture #adjunctchat 8/5/14 17:02

@4KM No big changes for next steps. Plan to shift to thesis supervision for a while after course design/delivery completed #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:03
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer There are some advantages to being an adjunct & good reasons for people to choose this status. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:03
@VCVaile RT @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 17:04
@bgrassbluecrab terminology is an interesting aspect @4KM like ‘adjunct’ versus ‘visiting’ or other functional adjuncts #adjunctchat 8/5/14 17:04
@4KM Yes, I recall that. RT @VCVaile: @4KM @Comprof1 Edward Said said the same about viewing any culture #adjunctchat 8/5/14 17:04
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I think it’s important to distinguish between those that choose adjuncting and those who are forced into it #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:04
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Sorry; Q2 was about linking #adjunct work and commitment with making a difference; some may be at odds with this #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:05
@4KM If the university values applied scholarship, adjuncts can be the stars. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:05

@JeffreyKeefer @robinyap @Comprof1 You are not alone in this; many of us adjuncts teach and work alone. More of a reason I need #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:07
