@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer 1st needed research, did so w/ pubs, then needed “terminal degree” (2 M not enough), now w/Phd no jobs. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:11
@whowewilltobe #AdjunctChat What are your demands? Think ideologically. Think impossibly, unrealistically. What do you want, #Adjuncts? 3/25/2014 16:11
@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat Q1/A1: I demand more pay for less work. 3/25/2014 16:11
@JeffreyKeefer I teach grad Research to HR and Mgmt students at NYU and doctoral-level Teaching and Learning to Nursing students at PaceU #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:11
@rjhogue #adjunctchat Q1- I won’t what organizations exploit me. I want a fair salary for contract work 3/25/2014 16:11
@fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy what can help to change this situation? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:11
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer A1 A pathway into FT work. Don’t even care at this point if teaching, admin, or other. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:12
@AdjunctChat RT @JeffreyKeefer: With that, let’s get started. Q1: What do you demand as an adjunct / non-TT worker? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:12
@IshaiBarnoy .@whowewilltobe #AdjunctChat Here’s a goal: A living wage teaching 5-10 students per semester. 3/25/2014 16:12
@AdjunctChat RT @JeffreyKeefer: Today’s #AdjunctChat will be co-facilitated by 3 of us – @whowewilltobe @fabianbanga and @JeffreyKeefer and our… 3/25/2014 16:12
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer PT professionals have guaranteed pathway (1st applications) to FT jobs. Adjuncts/contingent don’t. #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:13
@whowewilltobe @rjhogue @IshaiBarnoy We’ve got salary covered – we’ve demanded equivalent wages to TT faculty (see last demand in manifesto) #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:13
@rjhogue #adjunctchat recognition that teaching is more than just contact hours. 3/25/2014 16:13
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 do you know other adjuncts @ your campus in the same situation? @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:13
@BronwynHemsley Wednesdays 7am look #OTalk #WeNurses #AdjunctChat all at the same time. Imagine a collaborative topic. And that’s only my timeline! 3/25/2014 16:14
@IshaiBarnoy Getting hired near where I live, for more pay, teaching fewer students. RT @fabianbanga what can help to change this situation? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:14
@whowewilltobe @rjhogue Agreed & important! We should put it in the context section for sure. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:14
@cookingandcomp RT @rjhogue: #adjunctchat recognition that teaching is more than just contact hours. 3/25/2014 16:14
@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat My Revised Demand: Less work! 3/25/2014 16:15
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy Class size a real issue. TT teachers have grad students or TA’s. Adjuncts don’t #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:15
@JeffreyKeefer @BronwynHemsley We are glad you can <possibly> join us for #AdjunctChat, especially as I also work with and teach nurses! 3/25/2014 16:15
@rjhogue #adjunctchat I’d like to know sooner if I’m teaching or not. Our union actually causes this problem 😦 3/25/2014 16:15
@whowewilltobe #AdjunctChat Salaries will be equivalent to those paid to tenure-track faculty as outlined in HB 14 1154 http://t.co/SgJlDHVFSH 3/25/2014 16:15
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy Our campus caps classes at 18. What are your course sizes? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:16
@fabianbanga @klinecj I see. very different populations; #AdjunctChat @JeffreyKeefer 3/25/2014 16:16
@JeffreyKeefer A1 I often do not think of demands as an adjunct; in many ways they only power seems to be power to leave #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:16
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy Our dept is bare bones. ALL classes are full at 45. 2 classes=90 students. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:16
@MirandaMerklein (Currently freeway flying.) For Manifesto: Academic freedom is a central concern of #HigherEd. Contingency = silence. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:16
@JeffreyKeefer Any other thoughts about Q1: What do you demand as an adjunct / non-TT worker? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:16
@IshaiBarnoy .@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @fabianbanga I’ve done multiple 27-student classes in one semester. #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:16
@whowewilltobe @rjhogue #AdjunctChat agreed – we want a a min contract of 1 yr (max 5 yrs) with a 3/3 teaching load & tenure for all. 3/25/2014 16:17
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 TT in some colleges/university do; many do not. @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:17
@Comprof1 @rjhogue We do have something in our contract. If term (see link from before) must let faculty know 3 months ahead. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer Please include A1 for your reply to Q1; A2 for Q2, etc. to help the conversation be followed #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:18
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy Wow, that’s a lot of work! Way too many students. What cap do you suggest? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:18
@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat Here’s another demand: Eliminate student debt. Debt isn’t lethal, but it creates animosity against any faculty. 3/25/2014 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer Now, to move on . . . #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer Q2: How can these demands be inclusive for all adjuncts / NonTT workers? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:18
@Comprof1 RT @MirandaMerklein: (Currently freeway flying.) For Manifesto: Academic freedom is a central concern of #HigherEd. Contingency = silence. … 3/25/2014 16:18
@cookingandcomp @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy vary by course; FYC 25; some lecture classes in other departments 90+. #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:18
@rjhogue @whowewilltobe #AdjunctChat I think teaching load is one of those things that is context dependent as are class sizes 3/25/2014 16:18
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 our max is 40, min 25 even w languages (difficult) we do not have TAs @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:18
@IshaiBarnoy .@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @fabianbanga Suggested course cap: 8 students. #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:19
@whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer That’s the gen response: don’t like it? Leave! But what’s that say about our commitment to higher ed? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:19
@cookingandcomp @IshaiBarnoy It’d be nice if they could eliminate MY student debt, too. Oh WAIT. Higher wages–that could help! #AdjunctChat #studentdebt 3/25/2014 16:19
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 what is the max load for FT and PT instructors? @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:19
@whowewilltobe @IshaiBarnoy Love this one. Mass debt forgiveness is an excellent demand. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:20
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy The class size creep’s a real problem at our school for all facultyJust got email about it from union #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:20
@IshaiBarnoy .@cookingandcomp I’m talking about debt as a concept & phenomenon. It helps “afford things,” but it creates anxiety, too. #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:20
@whowewilltobe @IshaiBarnoy @Comprof1 @fabianbanga Aha. . .I see we have a radical in the house (: #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:20
@fabianbanga @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy Max 40 but I had a class with 80+ students once literature #AdjunctChat regular class is 30 3/25/2014 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @klinecj Try to remember to use the #AdjunctChat tag so everybody will see the conversation. 3/25/2014 16:21
@cookingandcomp @whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer demands also probably context specific, too. I have a great, support program, but that is rare #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:21
@whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy 90+ with or without TAs? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:21
@fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy that would be an Independent Study for us : ) @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:21
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy The one thing not outlined in contract. Even course load depends on type of college. CC is 5< #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer While we are talking about Q1 and Q2, please also take a look at the Adjunct Manifesto itself https://t.co/McMgyP0miT #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:22
@klinecj @cookingandcomp @whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer I have great development opportunities as well. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:22
@rjhogue #adjunctchat plane boarding :-). Signing out now. 3/25/2014 16:22
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @whowewilltobe @IshaiBarnoy This issue is NOT being addressed ANYWHERE and really affects teaching/learning #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:23
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 a FT TT instructor load for us is 15 units / a PT cannot tech more than 10 @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:23
@whowewilltobe @rjhogue Thanks for joining #AdjunctChat! Have a good flight (: 3/25/2014 16:23
@cookingandcomp @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy I’m honestly not sure. Probably with, not any in my dept. #classsize #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:23
@whowewilltobe @klinecj @cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer What does your college offer for development opportunities? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer Please continue to give feedback on the Adjunct Manifesto https://t.co/McMgyP0miT after and continue the conversation via #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:24
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 yes enormously if you for examp teach languages. recommendation is 20 @whowewilltobe @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:24
@klinecj @whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer All the opportunities that the FT faculty have. It is wonderful! #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:25
@klinecj @whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer All the opportunities that the FT faculty have. It is wonderful! #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:25
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 so this should be added to the Manifesto (would you like to?) @whowewilltobe @IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:25
@cookingandcomp @whowewilltobe @klinecj @JeffreyKeefer Not holding canceling classes to attend conferences against me. No sanctioned prof. dev #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:25
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @klinecj @cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer Our Teaching & learning center is very good at including adjuncts & cont #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:25
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 Added a “course cap” demand on the manifesto. Will you author it? #AdjunctChat https://t.co/NlChGGtiPS 3/25/2014 16:25
@IshaiBarnoy .@JeffreyKeefer A2/Q2: Make it so, man. Make it so. Teaching @Oplerno, maybe? Design courses to have few students, high pay. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:25
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @klinecj @cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer But now we have a TA union and noticed many resources moving FROM adj #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:26
@whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy #BadminBS at its finest: We’ll pay you <3K and give you 90 students! #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:26
@IshaiBarnoy .@JeffreyKeefer A2/Q2: Also, hire more, for more pay. If college is a business, make it big and make it efficient and ethical. #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:26
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @klinecj @cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer Both TA’s and Adj should have equal rights. Now shifting. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:26
@fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy How is @Oplerno doing? @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:27
@whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @klinecj @JeffreyKeefer Professional development & promotion are SO important. 100% agree #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:27
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @klinecj @JeffreyKeefer ours has a FT, NTT instructor as a fellow. Most FT opps are open to adjuncts #adjunctchat 3/25/2014 16:27
@IshaiBarnoy .@fabianbanga @Comprof1 @whowewilltobe Add reduction in class size to the manifesto? Yes! #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:27
@JeffreyKeefer A1 I sometimes wonder if adjunct and contingent faculty really do not have a lot of power, but keeping apart helps dilute it? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:27

@IshaiBarnoy .@fabianbanga @Oplerno @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat No idea. I’ve been lazy and irrationally fearful in designing/posting my course. 3/25/2014 16:28
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer If we are talking about collective bargaining negotiations you need a union #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:28
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @klinecj @JeffreyKeefer (my #adjunctchat next week) pay for all we do not just in class contact hrs. 3/25/2014 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @klinecj I sometimes find the notion of “promotion” for somebody paid on a per class basis silly #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy @fabianbanga @Oplerno Get going with it! #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:29
@whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer Divide and conquer is real. We need to speak w staff, students, and TT workers to see how we can help each other #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga I have been trying for ages to get union organizers to facilitate an #AdjunctChat, even via one of their “generic” accounts. 3/25/2014 16:30
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @klinecj I’d love to get paid/bonus for publishing (after fact?) & access to research$ #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:30
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @klinecj @JeffreyKeefer Also, recognizing how much time is actually put in outside of class. #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:30
@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat A1: I don’t mean to be a conspiracy theorist, but I’m beginning to suspect there’s maneuvering to take work away from #adjuncts 3/25/2014 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer Q3: How can we open the struggle to include demands for our allies, the students, and workers, too? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:31
@whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer @cookingandcomp @klinecj Which is one reason we don’t want to be paid on a “per class” basis anymore. . .#AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:31
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @klinecj @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat My inst. plans 2.5 hrs for every credit hour of class. Seems low to me. 3/25/2014 16:31
@fabianbanga Some institutions have FT non-TT adjuncts assistant professors (I know many) do you in your institution? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:31

@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @klinecj Why not get higher pay scale/job title/access to admin jobs? #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:32

@IshaiBarnoy .@whowewilltobe #AdjunctChat At my school (a community college), I think they might be pitting the FTers (non-TT) against the #Adjuncts. 3/25/2014 16:33
@whowewilltobe @cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @klinecj @JeffreyKeefer We’ve collected info on hours worked for every classroom hour – average was 4 #AdjunctChat 3/25/2014 16:33
@IshaiBarnoy .@whowewilltobe #AdjunctChat And, of course, the right-wing and/or secure #Adjucts are always pitted against the left-leaning ones. 3/25/2014 16:33

@ProfessorF74 @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat So we can’t single out angry Ss? My colleague @JosephPFisher1 thinks evals = useless. I agree at times. 3/18/2014 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Q1 I use ongoing formative evals with a critical incident questionnaire so pay little attention to uni one #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:11

@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer So, you are creating your own internal eval system? I think that’s gaining popularity. I do this at midterm #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:12
@cookingandcomp @rskiff @ProfessorF74 @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz BC this isn’t typically what angry evals reflect. #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:12
@Comprof1 @ProfessorF74 @JosephPFisher1 I think qual that schools develop across uni are. My dept has qual written. Invaluable #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:12

@cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable I find institutional cultures interesting. Some schools eval “course,” others “teaching” or “instructor.” #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:13

@LitProfSuz @rskiff @ProfessorF74 @Comprof1 Yes, critcal constructive is good. Anger @ others things not. #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:13
@sneakinabook Course evaluations form only one data set that should be examined when considering course quality #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:14
@Comprof1 @cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable I get: too hard to follow-too easy?? How do you handle that when you don’t know which student? #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:15
@Melissa_Venable @rskiff Do you see course evals as primarily for performance evaluation? #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:15
@rskiff @sneakinabook #AdjunctChat What are the others? 3/18/2014 16:15
@doc2be @AdjunctChat If use correctly and not for penalizing evals can be somewhat useful #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:15
@LitProfSuz @cookingandcomp It was rumored that my institute only looks at evals if there were other issues. #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:16
@Melissa_Venable @sneakinabook Welcome, Jacque! thanks for mentioning evals as feedback on course itself, not just instructor #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:16
@rskiff @Melissa_Venable #adjunctchat It depends on what you mean by performance. Students should be driving the process with some oversight… 3/18/2014 16:16
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable when I had written comments, I could usually guess who wrote what! Now I look at one question #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:16
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable which is “what grade do you expect to get in this class?” very telling! #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:17
@Comprof1 @rskiff @Melissa_Venable But do students understand what good teaching is? Performance in workplace not based on anonymous eval #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:17

@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz That is not a surprise #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:17

@Melissa_Venable @rskiff Really like the idea of including students in the evaluation development/review process in some way #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:37
@Melissa_Venable Q3) What are your suggestions for improving the course evaluation process, specifically for adjunct instructors? #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:39

@lindajeanlee @Melissa_Venable Resp for online evals have plummeted; much less useful feedback. Mostly angry Ss w/general complaints. #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:39
@Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable Other hidden level is accreditation bodies. Many require certain questions be asked. #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:39

@klinecj @Melissa_Venable Negative feedback sometimes is from the student who did poorly in the course and blames the instructor. #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:41
@Melissa_Venable @lindajeanlee Hello Linda – great to have you with us! #AdjunctChat Are you collecting more useful feedback in any way? 3/18/2014 16:41

@LitProfSuz @lindajeanlee @Melissa_Venable Can you say more about this? What does it look like? #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:43
@Melissa_Venable @klinecj Indeed! This is definitely a challenge – getting useful feedback that is not driven by student reaction to grades. #AdjunctChat 3/18/2014 16:43
@rskiff #AdjunctChat Would people support making all evaluations public? Shouldn’t this information be available before students take a class. 3/18/2014 16:43
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @Melissa_Venable True. But then difficult because students afraid of retaliation. #adjunctchat 3/18/2014 16:44

#AdjunctChat Topic Mar 11 ~ “I’m a Professional X” (with @chrishumphrey @FromPhDtoLife @ProfessorF74)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, March 11 is:

“I’m a Professional X” – How to Recast Academic Experience in a #PostAc / #AltAc Environment.

When applying for jobs outside academia, you have to dig deep and reinvent your professional persona. You need to translate your skills and experience into a language that employers can understand. So we want to know what’s worked for you,  and what might work for you in future, be it project manager, writer, scientist, whatever else.

  1. What hints and tips can you share with others about presenting your skills?
  2. What can you do to reinvent how you present yourself topotential employers and colleagues?

The chat will be co-facilitated by Chris Humphrey (@chrishumphrey), Jen Polk (@FromPhDtoLife) & Joe Fruscione (@ProfessorF74).

Here are some resources to help you learn more about marketing yourself as a professional X (where the X=the name of the job role you are applying for):

@LitProfSuz I took Silvia’s advise & formed an accountability wrtng group. Have since coached many ppl now through thesis/diss/articles #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:04
@JeffreyKeefer Some people find it useful to use Twubs or tchat.io to follow #AdjunctChat. I have recently been using @HootSuite for these Twitter chats. 3/4/2014 21:05

@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven Welcome to #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:05
@LitProfSuz @manville71 Welcome Sarah – glad you joined. Add #adjunctchat to each tweet 3/4/2014 21:05
@manville71 #AdjunctChat my biggest obstacle to writing is divided attention. teach 4 classes take 2, plus life. I can’t get a block of time set aside 3/4/2014 21:05
@Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz I have a writing partner as well – small group, but we keep each other motivated to keep moving forward #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:05
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Great to see you in #AdjunctChat again!! 3/4/2014 21:05
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Thanks, Jeffrey! Good to be here. Have had a packed schedule lately. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:06
@LitProfSuz I’ve also read Boice’s “Professors as Writers” to help in coaching. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:06
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Whose advice did you follow? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:06
@JeffreyKeefer @manville71 This is my experience, too! #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:06
@LitProfSuz Q1: To unmask the private agony of writing, what are the things that block you as a writer? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:07
@manville71 #AdjunctChat Writing partner would be great. Other adjuncts are not viable–they are too much in transition as well. 3/4/2014 21:07
@JeffreyKeefer My challenge with #AcWri is that I work FT in educational project management, teach 2 classes, and do a bit of consulting #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:07

@Melissa_Venable @manville71 Agreed! divided attention, time, distractions … all can affect focus on writing. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:07
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Silvia recommends an accountability wrtng group. State goals, admit success & failure. Peer pressure. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:08
@npmaven Typical: time (for this work), energy, multiple demands on both. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:08

@npmaven Energy is huge, esp since “non-work” writing is confined to limited blocks of time – not prime, either, for me. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:09
@LitProfSuz @Melissa_Venable @manville71 Boice found that regular, small (30 min) amounts of wrtng is more productive than binging #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:09
@IshaiBarnoy A1: I’m usually blocked by other people’s expectations, especially people close to me. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:10
@fabianbanga @LitProfSuz I can only write under a lot of adrenaline and pressure #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:10
@IshaiBarnoy A1: It’s easiest for me to write to my students, because it seems they’re still figuring out their expectations. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:10

@LitProfSuz @IshaiBarnoy Ah, the inner and external critic! Not unusual. I think we all fear what others will think. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:11
@Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz Interesting! I’m not sure how much I would accomplish in 30 mn. Spend that time recapping where I was when left off #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:11
@fabianbanga My dissertation: 3 month of procrastination and then wrote a chapter in two weeks. (then editing) #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:12
@npmaven My “prime” writing time: 5:15-6:15 a.m. Before work, sleeping puppy clear brain 🙂 Still, multiple demands on it. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:12
@LitProfSuz @fabianbanga Ah, you like the demands of a deadline. That is good to know about yourself. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:12

@fabianbanga @LitProfSuz Very common in journalism #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:13
@IshaiBarnoy @fabianbanga @LitProfSuz Yes, me too. Somehow, the critic’s gone and “authenticity” is pointless then. Feels crappy, though. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:13
@npmaven As pracademic, I’m also torn: immediate access, interaction, sharing via blog vs. long-term academic writing projects #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:13
@manville71 #AdjunctChat for me the 30 minutes is a nonstarter. It’s just getting settled, where are my sources, what is my framework. 3/4/2014 21:14
@JeffreyKeefer Q1: My biggest block is having time AND then I try to get everything just right before I start, and thus never start #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:14

@Melissa_Venable +1 to @npmaven’s tip – early morning hours, before house and work get going, can be really productive for writing. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:15
@JeffreyKeefer @manville71 A1: I am very process oriented, so also like to get everything just right before I begin #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:16
@IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer Best way for me to find time, and avoid perfectionism, is to steal this time — find a really bad time to write. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:16
@Comprof1 @npmaven esp now trying to decide what will get me a position. I feel shattered #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:16

@Comprof1 @IshaiBarnoy @JeffreyKeefer can you explain?#adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:17
@IshaiBarnoy @Melissa_Venable @npmaven Not me. I’ve got my mornings plotted too carefully. Not even five minutes of writing time left. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:17
@JeffreyKeefer Today’s #AdjunctChat topic about #AcWri reminds me of some similar themes we had recently with @CamelsHammers 3/4/2014 21:17
@Melissa_Venable @npmaven 🙂 so many ideas and possible projects, so little time. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:17
@LitProfSuz So, now that we have revealed our problems, let’s talk about solutions. Q2) What works for you? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:17
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer had a column on Saturday newspaper: I wrote on Fridays (all am doing nothing and then vomit all in 30 m @ pm) #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:17
@npmaven @Comprof1 So sorry to hear that. My low bar: too old for tenure track position. Makes it easier(?) to look at other avenues. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:17

@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz What sort of coaching do you do regarding #AcWri? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:18
@IshaiBarnoy @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I find a pocket of time when I could (so maybe should) be grading, for instance. Then I write instead. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:19
@npmaven A2) Definitely making the most of limited prime time. Also, looking for ways to repurpose. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:19

@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven BTW, how did you determine the focus of your blog? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:45
@npmaven Sure: http://t.co/4GOenOlktO Most convo happens elsewhere, for whatever reason. Esp. Twitter (waves at PLN…). #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:46
@npmaven @JeffreyKeefer I live, breathe, teach, dream nonprofit boards. Also topic of my dissertation (& 2nd MA). #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:47
@JeffreyKeefer I have been inspired by Laurel Richardson’s Writing: A Method of Inquiry http://t.co/kElct7LIEh #AdjunctChat A2b 3/4/2014 21:48
@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven Ahh, very worthy topic #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:48
@npmaven Must prep for next meeting on hour. Thanks all! #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:49

@JeffreyKeefer I wonder if a challenge I have with #AcWri is that I am interested in many things and find it challenging to focus? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:51
@Melissa_Venable @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Thanks for coordinating and facilitating the chat today! Helpful topic. #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:52
@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven So glad you could join us; look forward to chatting more in the future! #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:52
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I have often wondered how fortunate your campus experiences seem to be! #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:53

@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I find that instead of no noise, I need noise. I tend to work best with pounding dance music #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:54
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer 😀 That’s awesome! #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:55
@JeffreyKeefer RT @LitProfSuz: @JeffreyKeefer Pandora, http://t.co/iGekYKKxh4 #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:55
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz I clearly need to consider more apps to help me; really interesting #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:55
@LitProfSuz #adjunctchat Check out http://t.co/f6BwTVgPY5 #AcWriMo 3/4/2014 21:56
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz What is that tag for? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:56
@JeffreyKeefer I think I really need to use a writing partner #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:56
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz I know that that tag, though thought that was only for a set time? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:57
@JeffreyKeefer With so many great ideas, what #AdjunctChat take-aways do people have? 3/4/2014 21:57
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Yes, I’m most productive when I’m accountable to someone. Who can both support & prod you? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:58

@Charlesknight @JeffreyKeefer I really like having writing partners, got three things at different stages very happy with #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:58
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Did you develop the idea and sections in your academic writing board yourself? Windering about the methodology #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:58
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer When you sit down to write, you declare your goal & time and can see that others are writing too! Less lonely! #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:59
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz during the yr they use #acwri and have regular chats #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:59
@JeffreyKeefer @Charlesknight You mean 3 pieces of writing or 3 writing partners? #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:59
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Someone mentioned it @ a writing study group. I adapted it for me. #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 21:59
@Charlesknight @JeffreyKeefer Both! #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 21:59

@LitProfSuz @Charlesknight @JeffreyKeefer How did you find your writing partners? #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 22:00
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Thanks; will have to play around with it #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 22:00
@Charlesknight @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Well I met one on twitter, another I had contact with before and the third approached me #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 22:01
@JeffreyKeefer I have a lot of #AcWri ideas as a result of today’s #AdjunctChat and find the main one is that my colleagues have really useful strategies. 3/4/2014 22:01
@JeffreyKeefer My next step is to consider which of these to begin with #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 22:01
@LitProfSuz #adjunctchat Thanks everyone for joining! Keep posting your hints & resources! And keep writing! 3/4/2014 22:01
@JeffreyKeefer Hate to have to run, but Tuesday night is teaching for me. Thanks, @LitProfSuz for a most useful #AdjunctChat today. 3/4/2014 22:01
@Charlesknight @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer The thing is I’m find that beyond the exchange, I’m writing quicker #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 22:02

@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @fabianbanga Great question; I have no idea . . . #AdjunctChat 3/4/2014 22:06
@Comprof1 @npmaven actually I feel scattered, not shattered (autocorrect! Ugh) with my writing #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 22:07
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @npmaven Oh good. I was feeling bad for you! I too am all over the place, but my board helps #adjunctchat 3/4/2014 22:08
