@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 We left the office early due to the storm, so just got home in time for #AdjunctChat that begins in 10 minutes. 1/21/14 15:50
@AdjunctChat RT @Comprof1: #adjunctchat will be beginning in about 20 min. Today’s topic is challenges for online adjuncts. #ecrchat #highered #phdchat 1/21/14 15:51
@Comprof1 @AdjunctChat Hope everyone is in a warm place. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 15:56

@AdjunctChat RT @Comprof1: @AdjunctChat We’ll be starting momentarily. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 15:59
@Comprof1 So let’s start:How many of you currently or have taught online? What % of your time is online teaching? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:00
@Melissa_Venable RT @Comprof1 So let’s start:How many of you currently or have taught online? What % of your time is online teaching? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:01
@AdjunctChat Today’s #AdjunctChat begins now! “Challenges and Strategies for Online Adjuncts” http://t.co/qCKXlqgber and http://t.co/KITfZ04EhY 1/21/14 16:02
@AdjunctChat RT @Comprof1: So let’s start:How many of you currently or have taught online? What % of your time is online teaching? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:02
@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat A1: I taught online a lot. Last semester felt like at least 50% online, and this for a “face-to-face” class. 1/21/14 16:02
@Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 A1: I teach online now, 100% of my teaching is online. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:02
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Great to see you for #AdjunctChat; thanks for facilitating it. The topic is so timely! 1/21/14 16:02
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @IshaiBarnoy Great to see you here at #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:03
@Melissa_Venable @IshaiBarnoy Hello, Ishai! Would you say your F2F course is more “blended” or “hybrid”? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:03
@Comprof1 @AdjunctChat I haven’t taught online for about 4 yrs but will be teaching a course online this summer. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:03
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Q1 I have taught online, and am about to teach another blended course #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:03
@Comprof1 RT @Melissa_Venable: @IshaiBarnoy Hello, Ishai! Would you say your F2F course is more “blended” or “hybrid”? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:04
@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat A1: Also, I signed up to teach with @Oplerno. I still have to get my stuff together, but … someday soon I’ll get into it. 1/21/14 16:04
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy Q1 Can you talk more about how you understand your online teaching given the course seems scheduled for in-person? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:04
@IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable #AdjunctChat For official terminology, I would say “blended.” The term “hybrid” is used by my dept. for v. specific things. 1/21/14 16:05
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 What are you doing differently to prepare to teach this summer’s online course? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:05
@Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable Do you also design your course or do you have a separate person design it? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:06
@IshaiBarnoy @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat By choice, definitely, but pedagogically-motivated. I teach a composition class. Connection & dissemination are key. 1/21/14 16:06
@Melissa_Venable @IshaiBarnoy That makes sense – but it sounds like your course may have some of the same features or qualities. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:07
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer This is something new because it is only 4 weeks so more intense than before #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:07
@IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat Sure! I see it as homework, workshopping, and drafting. 1/21/14 16:07
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable The blended course I am teaching @PaceUniversity meets in-person 5x w/ the remainder via distance #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:07
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I also think I need approval from dept so I’ll have to have it completed by May (it goes live in July). #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:08
@Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 Both – sometimes it’s an existing course, but I’m also an instructional designer so have designed my courses, too #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:08
@IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable Yes, very much so. It’s generally hard to practically separate “hybrid” and “blended” approaches. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:08
@JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 25% of my time is online teaching. #adjunctchat. Has been, in the past, anywhere from 50 to 90%. 1/21/14 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Ia that a new course for you or one you taught previously? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:08
@Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy What types of online activities/resources do you use? Do you create your own or use “canned” resources? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy So in this way, it seems all courses may be considered online ones? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:09
@Melissa_Venable @IshaiBarnoy Agreed! I think the terms are often used interchangeably #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:09
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer One I’ve taught a lot (plus dissertation topic: group communication). #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy What do you mean by “canned” resources to use in online coursework? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 1/21/14 16:10
@Comprof1 @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable Was the 90% by choice or required? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:10
@Comprof1 RT @JeffreyKeefer: @IshaiBarnoy So in this way, it seems all courses may be considered online ones? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:10
@IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat I agree, in a way. Clear exceptions would be courses specifically designed with email as only online resource. 1/21/14 16:11
@Melissa_Venable @JustCallMeAngVS Welcome, Angela! What accounts for the variance? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:11
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy Programs from publishers or created by a different instructional designer. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:11
@JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 I used to teach a lot more online than in-person, though that has changed recently #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:11
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy I also have been an instructional designer for language courses at Empire State. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:12
@JustCallMeAngVS @Comprof1 was teaching 9 courses a sem while earning my Ph.D. and raising 4 children as a newly divorced single mom. No choice. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:12
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable Your choice or the school’s? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 I teach some online; w/ the growth of online instruction, the faculty pool widens #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:12
@IshaiBarnoy @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat Last semester, I made up my own material, almost entirely — “inspired” by others’ successes. 1/21/14 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy I have seen faculty resources, but not enough materials to primarily teach online using them #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:13
@melovell If you’re a sessional/adjunct academic and you teach online, then you may want to join today’s #adjunctchat. It’s just started. 1/21/14 16:13
@Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS I teach courses that are offered as “online” courses. Not a lot of mystery or choice. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:13
@Comprof1 #adjunctchat Q2 Is anyone an instructional designer who does not actually teach? If not, how much time do you put into designing course? 1/21/14 16:14
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy I have some colleagues who do HE instructional design, though have never seen that in my programs #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:14
@IshaiBarnoy @AdjunctSarah @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat I avoid Bb, as a rule. Instead, I use free blogging services. I don’t integrate. I link. 1/21/14 16:14
@JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable worked adjunct before securing full time work. Now it’s only what I do in the evenings and on weekends. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:14

@JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable Do you teach FT or #adjunct in a PT capacity? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:16
@Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 I think there are a lot of instructional designers working on campuses, as contractors, who don’t teach. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:16
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Some online schools like Empire State or Excelsier have content experts, instructiondesigners, and instructors #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:16
@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat A2: I teach primarily. Time I put in: Years of experience + 2-3 weeks of intensively drafting & revising posts & handouts. 1/21/14 16:16
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS Teaching is a PT endeavor for me. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I have done a fair amount of instructional design, though mainly with program design and development #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:17
@JustCallMeAngVS @AdjunctSarah @Comprof1 barely. I don’t know how I did it. I am really good at what I do. Students did not suffer. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:17
@melovell @JeffreyKeefer Thanks, I’ve never taught a course without face-to-face classes, so don’t have much to add. Interesting topic. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I wonder if this makes the instruction easier of if it is <gulp> to control what is taught? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:18
@jorgegomez101 to me, teaching online is more challenging than f2f. trying out live (& mirror) conferencing for the first time. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:18
@Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS Do you get paid differently than FT faculty? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS @AdjunctSarah @Comprof1 Wow, what a busy bee you were! The best for time management = lots of commitments #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:20
@JustCallMeAngVS @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable No I was not but was poorly paid for the most part as adjuncts typically are. I can be picky now. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:20
@melovell #adjunctchat What resources can people recommend for teachers developing an online course? 1/21/14 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @jorgegomez101 @AdjunctSarah Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 1/21/14 16:20
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’ve taught all types. HATED canned programs but did make less time consuming. Just didn’t like outcomes. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:20
@Melissa_Venable RT @melovell: #adjunctchat What resources can people recommend for teachers developing an online course? 1/21/14 16:20
@IshaiBarnoy @melovell #adjunctchat Rule #1: Use what you know how to use, easily and quickly. Then branch out to stuff you actually have to “learn.” 1/21/14 16:21
@Comprof1 #adjunctchat Q3 What are some challenges adjuncts may have that FT don’t in teaching online? What are some resources/support you should ask4 1/21/14 16:22
@Melissa_Venable @melovell Reach out to campus-based resources when available – multimedia assistance, general guidance, examples/models #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:22

@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat A3: FT’s and TT’s have the money and time to dedicate to learning and development that #adjuncts don’t. 1/21/14 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I wonder if saving time means more of other work can be directed your way!? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:24
@Comprof1 @melovell @SloanConsortium has some resources. Also SLN (SUNY Learning Network) & some online uni’s like Empire State College #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:24

@melovell #adjunctchat Some good tips there. Thanks! 1/21/14 16:27
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @melovell I find depts are NOT useful unless online degree. IT or Learning Center though. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:28
@Comprof1 @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable @melovell What will it be on? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable @melovell Agreed, though Depts at least can direct you to the fac resources if you ask them #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable @melovell My experiences is that unis have resources, but you have to know to ask for them #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:30

@Comprof1 #adjunctchat For me it’s not having support of dept. Out of site out of mind. If I lose contact at uni I’m lost in system. 1/21/14 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer We are 30 minutes into today’s #AdjunctChat on Teaching Online; all are still welcome #ECRchat #PhDchat #AltAc #NLC2014 #TtW14 #SMSociety14 1/21/14 16:32
@Melissa_Venable A4) Communication with rest of department can be challenging. Also keeping up with deadlines, required “paperwork,” etc. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Q4 Finding the time; teaching online can be MUCH more work than teaching F2F #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:33
@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat A4: I face the same challenge in online teaching as anything #adjunct-related: I get paid too little, and I get no healthcare. 1/21/14 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer RT @Comprof1: Q4 So what challenges do you face being an adjunct who teaches online? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:33

@Comprof1 #adjunctchat Had a problem w/ student and very little support from dept. Student had support from advisor. I was repremanded w/out facts 1/21/14 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Agreed; if one teaches online AND everything is smooth, easy to be forgotten as not missed #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:34

@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat A4: The money I need to feel secure/comfortable & the insurance I need to feel in control of my own healthcare choices. 1/21/14 16:34
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer Hi everyone, sorry i can only join you for 30m today (first day of classes here) #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:34
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Can you elaborate? What takes up your time? How is it different than face to face? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:35
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer Glad you could make it. Do you teach online at all? If so what are some of your challenges? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy Given your situation, is online better for you? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga You are always most welcome! #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:37
@fabianbanga Sorry I am late; did you talk about ownership of online content? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:37
@Comprof1 #adjunctchat Has anyone had a problem w/ misunderstanding of what it takes to teach online? 1/21/14 16:37
@IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat No, online is a compromise. I’d rather just teach close to home, for decent pay and health insurance. 1/21/14 16:38
@JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable @melovell Do you know any good short courses in developing online instruction? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:38
@JustCallMeAngVS @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable @melovell Designing online courses & teaching online. Practical. No Nonsense. Humorous. Can’t wait. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:38
@JeffreyKeefer RT @fabianbanga: Sorry I am late; did you talk about ownership of online content? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:38
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga No, but that is a good point. Especially for adjuncts who may work at multiple sites/orgs. Can you elaborate? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:38
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Yes I teach online and I’m DE coordin 4 my campus and District (kind of adviser to the chancellors) #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga Not yet; what is on your mind about ownership of online content? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @JustCallMeAngVS @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable @melovell Quick, get the book out; lots of folks can use that #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:39
@JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 Student lack of readiness. Poor writing skills. Lack of respect from those with tenure. Low pay. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:39
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 exactly, because I assume you own you content in F2F #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy How did you get an online teaching position if not near home? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:40
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer Do you work with adjuncts? What are some of the misperceptions? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:41
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer 4 example, you create a shell in the campus LMS, it is yours or institution? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer Does anybody think about how online courses would save the uni money (no need for room, no need for supplies), etc.? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:41
@josh_boldt @JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga I know Rob Skiff at @oplerno is big on intellectual property rights for adjuncts, if that helps. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:41
@Comprof1 @JustCallMeAngVS @Melissa_Venable How do you handle poor writing (and reading and self-regulation) skills? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:42
@IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat My primary teaching position is not online. I just found my way into it. My new forays haven’t quite solidified. 1/21/14 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer I wonder about teaching online, meaning I use and pay for my own computer, network, and the like. Seems a uni pays less for it #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:42
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I work with adjuncts all the time (support is the same for FT and PT) #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:42

@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer Support may be the same, but are problems the same? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:44
@IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat So I still have to see what teaching online “fully” is like. But I got into “full” online teaching via twitter. 1/21/14 16:44
@JeffreyKeefer @josh_boldt Yes, I have been trying to get both @fabianbanga and @Oplerno (and YOU) to facilitate an #AdjunctChat http://t.co/VlhjvYNbIC 1/21/14 16:44
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Absolutely. But there are other hidden costs uni’s transferring to online don’t consider. IT is big cost. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:45
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @Comprof1 At least the intended support is the same FT and PT. Often PT cannot make the times offered IMHO #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:45
@JeffreyKeefer RT @IshaiBarnoy: @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat So I still have to see what teaching online “fully” is like. But I got into “full” online… 1/21/14 16:45

@JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife Thanks; we are talking about online teaching in #AdjunctChat right now, so a nice carry-over. 1/21/14 16:46
@Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer What are some questions Ishai (or new instructor)should ask before getting into online adjunct job? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:46
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @josh_boldt @JeffreyKeefer @Oplerno Would love to hear more about what happened, how it works, etc. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:47
@IshaiBarnoy RT @Comprof1: @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer What are some questions Ishai (or new instructor)should ask before getting into online adjunct jo… 1/21/14 16:47
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer Yes, exactly, a bigger problem than DE: compensation @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:47
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @josh_boldt @JeffreyKeefer We also have it in our contract (instructor owned). Gets murky w/ publishers though. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:47
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy An initial online teaching question is clarifying how much instruction is synchronous vs. asynchronous #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:48
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Online costs that include personal use of IT and space mean unis save even more $ while trumpeting “convenience” #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:49
@MLAELEVATORHULK WHY #ADJUNCTCHAT NOT IN HULK’S ‘VATOR? HULK UNIONIZED! 1/21/14 16:49
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy Why is that important? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:49
@Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer Also need to ask who pays for tech and/or tech training. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:50
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @Comprof1 I think these issues raise ethical issues of what is fair and how that works with teaching and learning #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:50
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer @josh_boldt @Oplerno negotiation should be the same 4 F2F and DE classes, rights should be the same #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:50
@IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Yeah, why not do all asynchronously? Or at least as much as possible? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:50
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 exactly / #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:51
@JeffreyKeefer RT @Comprof1: @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer Also need to ask who pays for tech and/or tech training. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:51
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy @Comprof1 It depends on the dept needs, expectations, and requirements — all need to be clarified up front #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:52
@Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer Plagerism. Also less work if you are working synchronously (more like traditional class). #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer I just learned that our international students cannot take online courses as that conflicts with student study visas #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:52
@Comprof1 RT @JeffreyKeefer: @IshaiBarnoy @Comprof1 It depends on the dept needs, expectations, and requirements — all need to be clarified up front… 1/21/14 16:53
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy Unfortunately we do not have $$ for tech training #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:53
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer REALLY. I guess the question is why do they have to be in US if they can take online. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:54
@JeffreyKeefer I find that completely asynchronous courses cause many students to struggle with deadlines, as it somehow seems less “real” #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:54
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer I agree, plagiarism is a big problem everywhere. Does turnitdotcom work for you guys? #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:54
@IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Ah, yes, well. With #Adjuncts, many if not most “expectations” are riddled with departmental neglect. #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:54
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy You don’t have videos for students and faculty? How do they get answers to tech ?’s. #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:55
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 That is if a program is completely online, which many of them are not #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:55
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer No more than f2f. Instructional design and getting to know student style better #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:56
@JeffreyKeefer I wonder if online courses will cause even more growth in #adjunct instruction as location and time become less an issue? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:57
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Does that include hybrid or blended courses? (visa restrictions). #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:57
@IshaiBarnoy Okay, #AdjunctChat folks, I gotta jet. Catch you all on the flipside! #ImAWalking90sCliche 1/21/14 16:58
@Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer Well,need to finish up. Finally, what issues about adjuncts teaching online would you like to see 4 #adjunctchat 1/21/14 16:59
@Janshs RT @JeffreyKeefer: I find that completely asynchronous courses cause many students to struggle with deadlines, as it somehow seems less “re… 1/21/14 16:59
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer yes, & there r some consortiums already working on outstate students/ u cannot take DE classes outside own state #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:59
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 So far it has only been online or F2F; I think they are exploring blended. Anything to increase numbers! #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 16:59
@JeffreyKeefer This has been a very thought-provoking #AdjunctChat; thanks for facilitating it @Comprof1 1/21/14 17:00
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer Doesn’t that defeat the purpose? #AdjunctChat 1/21/14 17:00
