JeffreyKeefer Let’s see who is here. Want to introduce yourselves and mention where / what you adjunct? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:04:46
Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Hi Jeff! Melissa in South Carolina. Online adjunct instructor – instructional design and technology #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:05:11
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Welcome to #adjunctchat! 8/22/2013 16:05:27
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Is all of your adjunct teaching done online? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:06:32
rskiff #adjunctchat Rob Skiff in Vermont. 8/22/2013 16:06:44
Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Yes, all online. Two courses right now – one has four synchronous meetings, but the other is all asynch. #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:07:18
JeffreyKeefer I am in New York City and teach Research in both Management & Systems AND Human Resource Management graduate courses #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:07:28
Melissa_Venable @rskiff Hi Rob! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:07:30
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Welcome to #adjunctchat! 8/22/2013 16:07:41
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff What do you teach? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:08:10
JeffreyKeefer For those just joining in #adjunctchat, today’s topic is “What effects do long-time adjunct work have on one’s professional identity?” 8/22/2013 16:09:13
JeffreyKeefer How about if we get started with our questions of focus today.  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:09:45
JeffreyKeefer Q1:  How long have you been an adjunct?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:09:51
rskiff #AdjunctChat I have taught history, philosophy…Full disclosure I’m CEO of http://t.co/nYlTeyFgy7 and want to hear about adjunct concerns. 8/22/2013 16:10:12
JeffreyKeefer A1:  I have been an adjunct for 8 years in 2 different institutions #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:10:23
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Full disclosure is always a good thing; welcome!  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:11:03
Melissa_Venable A1) about 2 years, 2 schools.  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:11:49
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Have you ever taught as an adjunct? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:12:03
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Both schools at the same time? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:12:15
Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer This fall will be the first time teaching at two schools at once. Should be exciting 🙂 #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:13:01
JeffreyKeefer @JeffreyKeefer I am asking as I really teach at 2 universities, with them overlapping for most of my 8 years #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:13:08
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Exciting and exhausting (depending on whatever else you do!  😉  ) #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:13:34
rskiff #AdjunctChat Yes at Champlain College and UVM. 8/22/2013 16:13:50
Melissa_Venable @rskiff Thanks for the link. Looks interesting. Similar to Udemy? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:13:53
Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Exactly!! One more weekend to get all of my calendars straight.  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:14:22
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Great to here. While we focus on issues of interest and support for adjuncts, all are welcome here! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:14:51
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Let’s just say that I have been in a system for a long time, though finally got an appointment letter today! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:15:17
Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Great news! Congrats! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:15:45
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Thank you; things in life do not always move at the speed some would like; I often fit in that world, alas. #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:16:25
rskiff #AdjunctChat Melissa…I think it is quite different. Adjuncts get at 80% of tuition revenue generated in their classes and own the IP. 8/22/2013 16:16:50
JeffreyKeefer Anyway, moving on . . . our topic is “What effects do long-time adjunct work have on one’s professional identity?” #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:16:50
JeffreyKeefer Q2:  Did you imagine adjuncting in the way you are right now?   #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:17:01
Melissa_Venable @rskiff That’s helpful, thanks! I need to take a closer look – haven’t done much research into creating/offering my own class. #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:17:56
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Revenue models and adjuncts do not always align, at least by my calculations! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:18:05
SocAcademic @JeffreyKeefer absolutely not! #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:18:31
JeffreyKeefer A2:  Back when I started, I thought my adjunct experience would be different than it turned out  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:18:54
Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer In what way (q2)? In terms of scheduling, etc.  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:19:03
JeffreyKeefer @SocAcademic Welcome to #adjunctchat! 8/22/2013 16:19:05
rskiff @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat Not at all. The low pay and lack of job security made me want to redesign an educational inst from teh ground up 8/22/2013 16:19:23
JeffreyKeefer @SocAcademic Do tell us more. For A1 or A2?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:19:26
rskiff @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat I needed a job so I had to create one. 8/22/2013 16:19:43
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable A2:  I envisioned more of a scholarly community or at least more of a business-sort of itneraction #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:19:56
IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat Late here. Sorry. I’ve been adjunction at one institution for five years. (A1) 8/22/2013 16:20:12
4KM Hi Jeffrey; just noticed #AdjunctChat  Think I’ll lurk for a while! 8/22/2013 16:20:14
rskiff @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat What do you mean? 8/22/2013 16:20:29
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Creating jobs is good for all; why otherwise work if we are not somehow satisfied and engaged?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:20:33
JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy Welcome to #adjunctchat! 8/22/2013 16:20:45
IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat I was kind of given the straight talk almost right away. I get some creative control of my classes, but basically nothing else. 8/22/2013 16:21:04
JeffreyKeefer @4KM Welcome to #adjunctchat; feel free to engage in any way that works for you. The benefits of public engagement! 8/22/2013 16:21:19
IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat Sorry. That last one was A2. 8/22/2013 16:21:26
SocAcademic “@JeffreyKeefer: @Melissa_Venable A2:  envisioned more scholarly community, at least more of a business-sort of itneraction #adjunctchat” +1 8/22/2013 16:21:33
Melissa_Venable A2) Not sure what I expected, but experiencing different schools offer different cultures both academic and as employers  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:22:07
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Meaning that the courses I teach bring in tens of thousands of dollars more than I ever see  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:22:21
IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat A1) BTW, I’ve got to make it clear that I’m not a PhD. I’ve got an MFA. My pursuits are more creative than scholarly. 8/22/2013 16:22:42
rskiff @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat what was the “straight talk?” 8/22/2013 16:23:01
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Most of the classes I teach cost students anywhere from $3000-$5000 each #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:23:13
4KM Hi everyone. Don’t relate to term adjunct because of nature of “my” universities, but I guess I’ve been one for a long time. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:23:37
SocAcademic “@JeffreyKeefer: @rskiff Meaning that the courses I teach bring in tens of thousands of dollars more than I ever see  #adjunctchat” agreed! 8/22/2013 16:23:38
JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy A1: Diversity is a good thing #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:23:40
SocAcademic RT @JeffreyKeefer: #AdjunctChat THURS 8/22 4:00pm EDT. Topic: What effects do long-time adjunct work have on one’s professional identity? P… 8/22/2013 16:24:51
rskiff @SocAcademic @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat that needs to change. Faculty should get at least 80% of the revenue they generate in a class. 8/22/2013 16:25:09
JeffreyKeefer Today’s #adjunctchat topic is “What effects do long-time adjunct work have on one’s professional identity?” http://t.co/abIGf4QCIm 8/22/2013 16:25:29
IshaiBarnoy @rskiff #AdjunctChat The “straight talk” is, well, that the job’s a job, & here’s the way others have done it; we’re teachers, not scholars. 8/22/2013 16:25:34
JeffreyKeefer We are now considering Q2:  Did you imagine adjuncting in the way you are right now?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:25:42
SocAcademic RT @rskiff: @SocAcademic @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat that needs to change. Faculty should get at least 80% of the revenue they generate in … 8/22/2013 16:25:57
4KM Thinking about identity.  Mine is scholar-practitioner, so wk with universities helps me keep the scholar side sharp. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:25:57
JeffreyKeefer A2:  I like working independently with my classes and moving them from A>B, though it often seems to happen in a silo
#adjunctchat
8/22/2013 16:26:32
IshaiBarnoy @rskiff #AdjunctChat Of course, I teach at a community college. It’s a kind of a teacher college environment, not so much “research.” 8/22/2013 16:26:35
SocAcademic “@IshaiBarnoy: @rskiff #AdjunctChat “straight talk”= job’s a job, & here’s the way others have done it; we’re teachers, not scholars.” Sad! 8/22/2013 16:26:43
rskiff @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat I don’t believe that nonsense…teachers are by their very nature scholars. 8/22/2013 16:26:50
JeffreyKeefer @4KM What sort of work do you engage in?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:27:02
4KM @ishaibarnoy Interesting.  I think of myself more like an impoverished scholar who happens to teach. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:27:03
IshaiBarnoy @rskiff #AdjunctChat I’m sorry. I don’t mean that as a rhetorical point. Merely the impression I was given about my workplace. 8/22/2013 16:27:31
JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy @rskiff It is interesting in how research can be a focus or something we individually engage in  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:27:55
4KM @rskiff Yet about 80% of revenue goes into infrastructure, IT, staff salaries etc. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:28:03
JeffreyKeefer Next step comes a juicier question! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:28:39
IshaiBarnoy @4KM #AdjunctChat I’ve reached a state like that, too. However, it’s hard (impossible, maybe) to keep the job and the life separate. 8/22/2013 16:28:42
JeffreyKeefer Q3:  How do you understand your professional identity? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:28:43
robinyap @4KM lol on what you said about being an impoverished scholar who happens to teach. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:29:14
rskiff @4KM #AdjunctChat that is another conversation that should occur via video. Most capital in higher ed is misallocated away from teaching. 8/22/2013 16:29:24
Melissa_Venable RT @JeffreyKeefer Q3:  How do you understand your professional identity? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:29:38
JeffreyKeefer A3:  I tend to blur my professional, personal, and academic identities #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:29:47
JeffreyKeefer @4KM Nice way of answering Q3! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:30:22
IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer @rskiff #AdjunctChat Well, maybe I suck at research in some fundamental way, b/c my individual engagement is at a low point. 8/22/2013 16:30:32
rskiff #AdjunctChat Can I make a plug? 8/22/2013 16:30:34
SocAcademic “@4KM: @ishaibarnoy Interesting.  I think of myself more like an impoverished scholar who happens to teach. #AdjunctChat” here, here 8/22/2013 16:30:55
4KM Tenured faculty think grant $ 1st; research 2nd. Adjuncts often think research interests first as they may never get $ #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:30:57
robinyap @JeffreyKeefer Thought I’d join in #AdjunctChat. 8/22/2013 16:30:57
rskiff @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat its probably just the system and/or the tech. 8/22/2013 16:31:26
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff The life of an adjunct is itself a plug. Go ahead!  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:31:28
JeffreyKeefer It seems there are some really interesting approaches to Q3:  How do you understand your professional identity? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:32:03
JeffreyKeefer @robinyap Welcome to #adjunctchat! 8/22/2013 16:32:12
4KM @robinyap For better or worse, its true! #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:32:51
rskiff #AdjunctChat I’m looking for scholar practitioners to develop their own classes/programs. http://t.co/7WaG6VKA8G Paradigm needs to change. 8/22/2013 16:33:33
JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy Hang in there! @rskiff  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:33:35
IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat A3) Me: Knowledgeable creative in a professional context that allows him to help students achieve goals and think critically. 8/22/2013 16:33:46
4KM A3 I’m a boat-rocking, reflective pragmatist. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:33:49
JeffreyKeefer RT @4KM @ishaibarnoy Interesting.  I think of myself more like an impoverished scholar who happens to teach. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:34:14
JeffreyKeefer @4KM A3: I challenge you to unpack that one!  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:34:36
SocAcademic “@rskiff: #AdjunctChat looking for scholar practitioners to develop own classes/prog. http://t.co/kWm87fNTiu Paradigm needs to change.” Cool 8/22/2013 16:34:49
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable How do you engage in Q3?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:35:04
rskiff #AdjunctChat faculty own their own IP. Set their tuition and get at least 80% of it. Total academic freedom and can choose size of class <30 8/22/2013 16:35:13
IshaiBarnoy RT @rskiff: #AdjunctChat I’m looking for scholar practitioners to develop their own classes/programs. http://t.co/7WaG6VKA8G Paradigm needs… 8/22/2013 16:35:24
JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy Wow, that is quite nicely stated. It can be a great purpose statement for why you teach  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:35:38
robinyap @JeffreyKeefer Q3 Scholar-practitioner would be my professional identity #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:35:51
SocAcademic RT @rskiff: #AdjunctChat faculty own their own IP. Set their tuition and get at least 80% of it. Total academic freedom and can choose size… 8/22/2013 16:35:54
rskiff @SocAcademic #AdjunctChat if you have a masters you can apply…extra income for the GTAs… 8/22/2013 16:36:02
IshaiBarnoy RT @rskiff: #AdjunctChat faculty own their own IP. Set their tuition and get at least 80% of it. Total academic freedom and can choose size… 8/22/2013 16:36:06
Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Pondering Q3 … it’s definitely evolving, adjunct teaching is just one part of my professional identity. #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:36:26
rskiff #AdjunctChat I’ll stop plugging unless someone has a question. 8/22/2013 16:36:35
JeffreyKeefer We are in the middle of today’s #adjunctchat; What effects do long-time adjunct work have on one’s professional identity? 8/22/2013 16:36:40
IshaiBarnoy Well, #AdjunctChat folks, it’s been a lovely 10 minutes, but I’ve gotta jet. Sorry to hit and run. Much love to all of you. 8/22/2013 16:37:05
4KM @robinyap Perhaps we should co-author on the impoverished scholar-practitioner scraping up air miles for conferences #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:37:14
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable A3:  I wonder if teaching is only one aspect of many FT faculty, too? Must ask @fabianbanga and @raulpacheco #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:39:03
rskiff #AdjunctChat Adjuncts are an exploited section of higher ed. Low pay..low control and no job security. It is horrible and generates stress. 8/22/2013 16:39:11
JeffreyKeefer @4KM A3:  Why do you travel to present? What are the academic rewards in place for that? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:39:59
4KM Does anyone else feel that tension of both low on totem pole and not wanting anything to do with insular Academy status? #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:40:33
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff or it could be very freeing, with no long-term commitments, department politics, or publishing / tenure pressure #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:41:05
Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Likely re: FT fac. I tend to shy away from putting too tight a definition, description on professional identity. #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:41:19
4KM @jeffreykeefer There are no check-box rewards.  Rewards are in community-building through presentations and publications. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:41:24
robinyap @JeffreyKeefer Adjunct work as an opportunity to support the next generation of learning professionals that I teach #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:42:04
rskiff @4KM #AdjunctChat Great question…Why innovate when your never taken seriously and have no agency? 8/22/2013 16:42:09
JeffreyKeefer I wonder if Q3:  How do you understand your professional identity? could be its own chat topic in the future?!?! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:42:14
SocAcademic @4KM have to admit, I envision enlarging FT faculty engagement with adjunct issues #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:42:42
JeffreyKeefer BTW, near the end of our #adjunctchat (or any time before), please feel free to suggest future chat topics and I will add into the poll 8/22/2013 16:42:43
JeffreyKeefer @robinyap A3:  That makes it sound like adjunct work is almost mission-driven? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:43:24
rskiff @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat Freeing if your independently wealthy…for most it is almost like piecework. 8/22/2013 16:43:34
SocAcademic @JeffreyKeefer maybe already happened- adjuncts and tech pedagogy? #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:43:45
JeffreyKeefer Perhaps we can feed these issues into our Q4?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:44:00
JeffreyKeefer Q4:  What role has being an adjunct had on this identity?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:44:04
SocAcademic Sad, but true…“@rskiff: @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat Freeing if your independently wealthy…for most it is almost like piecework.” 8/22/2013 16:44:31
JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Perhaps it also depends if one wants to subsist through only adjunct work or if FT employment elsewhere is supportive  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:44:54
4KM @jeffreykeefer @robinyap Hmmm. Subversive mission work under the umbrella of cheap and flexible labour. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:45:10
JeffreyKeefer @SocAcademic Can you say more about this?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:45:13
SocAcademic Wow that fast! Gotta run, thanks for #adjunctchat! Enjoyed it! 8/22/2013 16:45:30
rskiff @SocAcademic #AdjunctChat we are going for accreditation starting in Vermont, Ecuador and China. Just like a full university. 8/22/2013 16:46:10
JeffreyKeefer @SocAcademic Glad you were able to join us today!  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:46:14
4KM As a sidebar to Q4 I think the culture of the U affects this hugely.  How are adjuncts seen and valued, or not. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:46:36
robinyap @4KM @JeffreyKeefer Subversive? I wouldn’t go THAT far but I’m sure there are reasons people go adjunct other than monetary #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:46:49
JeffreyKeefer A4:  I have been thinking about @4KM’s notion of academic-trapped-in-practitioner’s body #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:47:28
JeffreyKeefer A4:  In some ways, it is the research that is related to my adjunct teaching that I find most intellectually stimulating #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:48:05
rskiff @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat clearly you need combination, but for many it is the only way to keep teaching/doing what they love. 8/22/2013 16:48:17
4KM @socacademic Could you explain more? #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:48:32
SocAcademic @JeffreyKeefer school tends to leave adjuncts out of tech initiatives…more inequality for adjuncts #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:48:34
SocAcademic RT @4KM: As a sidebar to Q4 I think the culture of the U affects this hugely.  How are adjuncts seen and valued, or not. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:48:46
SocAcademic @JeffreyKeefer again, many thanks! #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:49:10
JeffreyKeefer @4KM A4:  Yes, culture is definitely layered when talking about academic work #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:49:15
JeffreyKeefer @SocAcademic Thanks again, and when you have a moment please share an example of this sort of tech initiative you have in mind #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:49:57
4KM @robinyap @jeffreykeefer I was stretching it but was amused that some Us may be totally unaware of mission-driven elements #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:50:08
robinyap @4KM @JeffreyKeefer True true..#AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:50:51
JeffreyKeefer Perhaps this academic identity discussion may point to the future and engagement? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:51:07
JeffreyKeefer Q5:  Where do you hope to develop your professional identity in the future? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:51:12
4KM Thanks for hosting Jeffrey; good to have another opportunity to connect and to meet new folks as well. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:51:33
SocAcademic @4KM some FT faculty work to make departments more inclusive of adjuncts, add more FT lines, etc., more general engagement #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:51:52
JeffreyKeefer A5:  This sort of question is personally very challenging, as it reminds me of the “What do I want to be when I grow up?” issue #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:52:04
robinyap @JeffreyKeefer Now that’s a juicy discussion topic – engagement of adjuncts #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:52:05
JeffreyKeefer @4KM Glad you were able to join in! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:52:19
4KM A5 I’m wondering about some knowledge brokering of some sort: moving obscure scholarly gems into the mainstream. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:52:50
JeffreyKeefer I create an #adjunctchat list if anybody wants to follow it or be added to it https://t.co/545pXaY5Uf 8/22/2013 16:52:59
JeffreyKeefer I use this list https://t.co/545pXaY5Uf to notify people of the biweekly poll and planning #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:53:21
4KM @socacademic Thanks #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:53:30
Melissa_Venable RT @JeffreyKeefer Q5:  Where do you hope to develop your professional identity in the future? #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:53:51
robinyap @JeffreyKeefer A5: Indeed, I have to think about my answer on this some more. #AdjunctChat 8/22/2013 16:54:05
JeffreyKeefer @SocAcademic I cannot imagine more FT faculty at the expense of adjunct any time soon #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:54:13
rskiff #AdjunctChat GTG thanks for the time. 8/22/2013 16:54:41
JeffreyKeefer I think adjunct work will only increase, so the more we can learn about it and support ourselves, the better off we all may be #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:54:44
JeffreyKeefer @robinyap While our live #adjunctchat ends in a few minutes, you can add a response to Q5 any time! 8/22/2013 16:55:19

JeffreyKeefer @rskiff Thanks for joining in! #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:55:31
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Q5: is a tough one, ehh?  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:56:01
JeffreyKeefer A5:  I find I am teaching more traditionally oriented advanced or research topics that are more common with FT faculty #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:56:32
Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer These are all tough. 😉 But good to reflect on. #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:56:55
JeffreyKeefer A5:  I can only imagine this increasing, especially given the many graduate programs staffed almost entirely by adjuncts #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:57:01
Melissa_Venable A5) In being open to new opportunities and conversations, there’s no telling what the next professional endeavor will be. #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:58:27
JeffreyKeefer A5 With heavy grad and postgrad courses increasingly taught by adjuncts, I envision @AdjunctNation & @NewFacMajority growing!  #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:59:24
JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable and there is a lot of exciting opportunities there! A5 #adjunctchat 8/22/2013 16:59:46
JeffreyKeefer Well, it seems our #adjunctchat today has flown by. Any closing thoughts or next steps? 8/22/2013 17:00:12

JeffreyKeefer Our next #adjunctchat will be two weeks from today on Thursday, Sept 5, at 4:00pm EDT. Please RT. 8/22/2013 17:02:10
