@fabianbanga Hi @Melissa_Venable #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:12
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable There are several in my area. Contact 1 dept. chair; never got a response. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:13
@NevilleAnnKelly Hello folks #AdjunctChat I am an intermittent adjunct by choice at same college I was previously tenure-track. 4/1/14 16:13
@Comprof1 @KateMfD Glad you can make it. It’ll be interesting to see how adjuncts are used/perceived in other locations. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:13
@KateMfD #auscasuals, here’s the #adjunctchat link for info: http://t.co/2TdzKJbIMl 4/1/14 16:13
@NevilleAnnKelly I was the only dept. member who had time to develop our first online courses. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:14
@Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga Several roles, but F/T is as an education writer – covering eLearning topics, social media, online learning #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:14
@Comprof1 #adjunctchat. We have a new dept head & I’m finding that she knows nothing of my background. She didn’t hire me but I’ve been in dept for 8 4/1/14 16:14
@klinecj @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable this semester I am teaching 4 courses at two schools a #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:14

@JeffreyKeefer RT @KateMfD: #auscasuals, here’s the #adjunctchat link for info: http://t.co/ID3skh8co7 4/1/14 16:15
@Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 @cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer Access, yes, but local institutions have limited distance ed. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:16
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 #adjunctchat in English dept; many FYC courses taught by many adjuncts. Good support but $ prevents more FT positions #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:16
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @cookingandcomp @Melissa_Venable What sort of other access are you thinking about? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:16
@fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable nice! #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:16
@Comprof1 @klinecj @Melissa_Venable Are there differences between the 2 schools in what they know about your skills/work? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:16
@fabianbanga what topic? @NevilleAnnKelly #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:17
@Comprof1 @cookingandcomp Something I’ve been trying to do is find how much $$ is actually spent on contingent faculty. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:18
@YourDailyArt #AdjunctChat @AdjunctChat @Comprof1 I hardly know the other AH #Adjuncts and only do because I made a concerted effort to befriend them. 4/1/14 16:18
@klinecj @Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable Yes – one is local and one is not. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:18
@Comprof1 @cookingandcomp My uni is public so EVERY employee’s name and salary was made public but budget is private!!!!!!!!!!!! #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:18
@KateMfD . @Comprof our casual teachers often hidden from view — mostly in roles more like TA than adjunct. Key first year teachers. #adjunctchat 4/1/14 16:19
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 Inst. recently cut our max hours instead of give healthcare benefits. . .will have neg. affects on FYC program #adjunctchat 4/1/14 16:20
@YourDailyArt @Comprof1 @AdjunctChat #AdjunctChat This is why it is so hard to get people to understand how underpaid we are when our own co-workers don’t 4/1/14 16:20
@Comprof1 @KateMfD @comprof Are TA’s & adjuncts the same or is there a distinction made? Finding some schools same other diff #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:20
@fabianbanga @KateMfD Are your TAs in charge of their own courses? Like GSIs?

@comprof #AdjunctChat

4/1/14 16:20
@cookingandcomp @Comprof1 Outside ENG, though, there is a culture of distrust for adjuncts b/c adjuncts do not “stick around” #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:20
@Melissa_Venable RT @KateMfD our casual teachers often hidden from view — mostly in roles more like TA than adjunct. Key first year teachers. #adjunctchat 4/1/14 16:20
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 it should also be public

#AdjunctChat @cookingandcomp

4/1/14 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @KateMfD @comprof What are GSIs? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:21
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @cookingandcomp If it is, they hide it much better than they did our salaries. Really is a bit embarrassing. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:22
@fabianbanga @YourDailyArt For us a programmer and the majority of the FT assistants make twice as a PT instructor + benefits

@Comprof1 #AdjunctChat

@KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @comprof Australian casuals more often tutoring on courses led by full-time faculty. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer @YourDailyArt @Comprof1 One institution where I teach has frequent admin turnover. If not teaching then, easy to be forgotten #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:23
@Comprof1 #adjunctchat Q2 So if you had to identify what work you do to teach your class, what would you include? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:23

@YourDailyArt @fabianbanga @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat I am sure this is my case too. The dept head could not pick me out of a line-up after 6 years of classes 4/1/14 16:25
@npmaven RT @Comprof1 #adjunctchat Q2 So if you had to identify what work you do to teach your class, what would you include? 4/1/14 16:26
@Comprof1 @Melissa_Venable Not only developing/modifying content, but learning tech updates, working around tech limitations #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:26
@NevilleAnnKelly @Comprof1 Amazing, but teaching 1 online course at a distance involves near same tasks and time load as 3 classroom courses. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:26
@Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 Congrats! It can be a lot of work – especially that first course, or version of a course. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:26
@YourDailyArt @therealchalo @OhioPTFacAssn #AdjunctChat I do and I follow them although I have yet to make a meeting. 4/1/14 16:26
@Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 Sounds like you are getting a lot of instructional design and edtech experience in the process. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:27
@Comprof1 @YourDailyArt @fabianbanga Does this put you at a disadvantage? I’m sure DH would know you if there were complaints! #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:27

@Comprof1 @npmaven And yet, perception that it is “easier” and not as effective. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:30
@npmaven But ongoing? Hmm. Probably 10-20 hrs/wk WITH course set up ahead of time. #adjunctchat 4/1/14 16:30
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Indeed. Development contracts can be separate from teaching ones – but may have to ask, and ask again #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:30

@rskiff @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat Your answer is the reason so many adjuncts are hurting. Giving institutions free stuff w/o compensation is not ok. 4/1/14 16:50
@YourDailyArt @fabianbanga @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat We have one office with 3 computers for over 90 adjuncts. 4/1/14 16:50
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @YourDailyArt @NevilleAnnKelly Just had discussion We can’t add new class until 45 students in all scheduled class #adjunctchat 4/1/14 16:51
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @YourDailyArt @NevilleAnnKelly Problem is planned classes don’t cover all in major. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:51
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 Prep time, review assignments, engaging in research / keeping disciplinary knowledge current, meetings, student advisement #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:52
@Comprof1 @YourDailyArt @fabianbanga I’ve never heard of such a thing! why even have an office? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer RT @rskiff: @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat Your answer is the reason so many adjuncts are hurting. Giving institutions free stuff w/o… 4/1/14 16:53
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer How much time per class hour do you think you spend? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:53
@CitizenAcademic RT @AdjunctChat: Today’s #AdjunctChat on “What do adjuncts do?” continues, and it not too late to join in! http://t.co/5oUSLtfkOW @comprof1 4/1/14 16:53
@fabianbanga @YourDailyArt Too many! we: PT & FT together, 4 desks/room. FT 1-1 desk, PT: no more than 8-1 + other areas 2 work.

@Comprof1 #adjunctchat We are “expected” to have office hrs because assessed in sem end student assessment, but not paid for it. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:54
@YourDailyArt @Comprof1 @fabianbanga #AdjunctChat I don’t use it even if on campus, that many people, way too many germs. 4/1/14 16:54
@rskiff #AdjunctChat I see a group of people who are an exploited class if ever there was one. How do you all stand the inequality/lack of agency? 4/1/14 16:55

@NevilleAnnKelly Wow @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @YourDailyArt Private schools can shrink classes, esp. if branded as <1:15 faculty:student ratio. #adjunctchat 4/1/14 16:55
@Comprof1 So last question/comment: how can we find out & inform people about what adjuncts do? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:56
@fabianbanga @NevilleAnnKelly our min is 25, max 40 however, some flexibility, some classes can have more or less.

@YourDailyArt @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat

@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 That is a good question; I have never calculated how much time I really spend on the peripheral activites #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:57
@Comprof1 http://t.co/hR28g17xfE I’ve been collecting some good articles/studies on adj. on my blog. Tweet me if you know of others. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:57

@fabianbanga @Comprof1 what? terrible

@YourDailyArt @NevilleAnnKelly #AdjunctChat

4/1/14 16:58
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @NevilleAnnKelly @YourDailyArt 40 for a language class? That’s crazy and not fair to instructor or student. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:58
@Adjunctular @rskiff #AdjunctChat I blogged about mandatory contributions of time. “It’s Not Just about the Dough” at http://t.co/XHMqGqqjwk 4/1/14 16:58
@MademoiselleSci Thanks for the insight! #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:59
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Do you know of an app that could be used to determine time? Where might there be funding? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:59
@rskiff #AdjunctChat I don’t know of any exploited class who is as fearful as adjuncts. The problem is there is no alternative or is there? 4/1/14 16:59
@fabianbanga @Comprof1 I know. long fight. they do not understand.

@NevilleAnnKelly @YourDailyArt #AdjunctChat

4/1/14 16:59
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 Do adjuncts work more than paid for out of love for the discipline, and thus taken advantage of for the goodness of heart? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 16:59
@rskiff @Adjunctular #AdjunctChat I’ll check it out. 4/1/14 17:00
@fabianbanga @NevilleAnnKelly I know, private univ/colleges are different.

@YourDailyArt @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat

4/1/14 17:00
@YourDailyArt @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @NevilleAnnKelly #AdjunctChat our online cap is 28 on campus the fill # is 40. 4/1/14 17:01
@rskiff #AdjunctChat We all tolerate the poor conditions/pay and so make it a lot worse. What about the other systems? That is why I created Oplerno 4/1/14 17:01
@Comprof1 @rskiff There needs to be a mass (growing) united voice & data to support it.Slowly voices being heard, but need studies also. #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:01
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Read just in time professor and CAW report. http://t.co/fss94UJpyF #adjunctchat That is part of it. 4/1/14 17:03
@rskiff @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat Nonsense! build the world you want to see. Data and voices–sounds like a faculty meeting. Those are not effective. 4/1/14 17:03
@phillyprof03 I know many adjuncts who coordinate dept activities and are not compensated for it. those that are aren’t getting much $. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:03
@YourDailyArt @Comprof1 @fabianbanga @NevilleAnnKelly #AdjunctChat wonder why 28/40? Well a FT retired teaches the majority of online and set the limit # 4/1/14 17:03
@JeffreyKeefer RT @Comprof1: @JeffreyKeefer Read just in time professor and CAW report. http://t.co/c8D5BZbXUU #adjunctchat That is part of it. 4/1/14 17:03
@NevilleAnnKelly #adjunctchat @YourDailyArt @Comprof1 @fabianbanga 28 is definitely the upper limit for an effective online course. 4/1/14 17:04
@phillyprof03 The prep time for adjunct taught courses is not reflected in the pay. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:04
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @YourDailyArt Yes, I work for public. Class size/requirements > but salary is better because of union #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:04
@YourDailyArt @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat Thank you for facilitating the chat today. 4/1/14 17:04
@sneakinabook @JeffreyKeefer Whether out of love or necessity, most are working more than they’re paid for. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:04
@fabianbanga @NevilleAnnKelly How can we change this reality from a transcendental perspective?

@YourDailyArt @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat

4/1/14 17:04

@JeffreyKeefer RT @sneakinabook: @JeffreyKeefer Whether out of love or necessity, most are working more than they’re paid for. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:06
@phillyprof03 The idea that adjuncts need to quantify their time is part of the problem. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:06
@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @NevilleAnnKelly @YourDailyArt In this economy/society, numbers talk. AARP gets their message across. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:06
@NevilleAnnKelly GREAT question @fabianbanga @YourDailyArt @Comprof1 #adjunctchat Requires an entirely new vision of pedagogy, expand beyond old models. 4/1/14 17:07
@JeffreyKeefer @sneakinabook I agree with you completely. I am wondering if this is the problem? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:07

@YourDailyArt @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat

4/1/14 17:07
@phillyprof03 Would “evidence” in the form of numbers miraculously alter the exploitation of adjunct labor? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:07
@JeffreyKeefer @sneakinabook It can be a challenge to expect / demand to get paid for doing education and teaching that we love to do #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:07
@Comprof1 @phillyprof03 If you were a lawyer or other “contract” professional, you would bill every hr you work. Maybe we should do same #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:07
@sneakinabook @phillyprof03 with budgets tight, is there another incentive for adjuncts offering this benefit to their institutions? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:07
@rskiff #AdjunctChat thanks for the effort. See you soon. 4/1/14 17:08
@phillyprof03 Or is it yet another unreasonable demand being made of adjuncts? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:08

@JeffreyKeefer This has been a great #AdjunctChat. If you enjoyed it too, please consider facilitating one on a topic of your choosing / interest! 4/1/14 17:09
@NevilleAnnKelly I kept track last year @Comprof1 @phillyprof03 #adjunctchat Astounding hours spent. 4/1/14 17:09
@Comprof1 @sneakinabook @phillyprof03 How many of us know what budget is? I can’t find current budget but public school. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:09
@Comprof1 @sneakinabook @phillyprof03 We need to get access/arm ourselves w/ info on locations where we are working. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:09

@NevilleAnnKelly True, @phillyprof03 #adjunctchat yet it also provides empirical evidence for a deeper, even existential reality. 4/1/14 17:10
@sneakinabook @JeffreyKeefer Everyone knows not to go into teaching for the $ but how much is too much? In many cases it is a problem. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:10
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer yes indeed. thank you @Comprof1 and #AdjunctChat / all the best! 4/1/14 17:11
@Comprof1 @NevilleAnnKelly @phillyprof03 Did you use a journal? An app? How much time did you spend? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:11
@Comprof1 Next week will be a change in topic: Adjuncts doing research. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:12
@NevilleAnnKelly I used Swift-To-Do List last year @Comprof1 @phillyprof03 #adjunctchat but am now using Time Meter android app. 60+ hours/week universally. 4/1/14 17:13

@NevilleAnnKelly Thanks all, #adjunctchat! I learn a lot from y’all. 4/1/14 17:14
@NevilleAnnKelly @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 #adjunctchat Thank you for the engaging discussion! 4/1/14 17:15
@AdjunctChat Even if you could not join today’s #AdjunctChat, please follow the hashtag and reply to anything there you see. Keep the conversation going! 4/1/14 17:21
@phillyprof03 Or is he goal to do away with the system that makes adjuncts necessary? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:24
@phillyprof03 The status “adjunct” doesn’t mean they’re doing less or different work. They do the same (sometimes more) work as NTTs. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:31
@phillyprof03 The status “adjunct” doesn’t mean they’re doing less or different work. They do the same (sometimes more) work as NTTs. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:31
@Comprof1 @phillyprof03 I don’t agree If you know what going rate is (some good info on my blog/vitae) & how much time needed, more lever #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:31
@conditionaccept RT @phillyprof03: The status “adjunct” doesn’t mean they’re doing less or different work. They do the same (sometimes more) work as NTTs. … 4/1/14 17:31
@Comprof1 @phillyprof03 Also, need to work as group rather than individual. May not help for individual, but as group can do something.#AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:32
@Comprof1 @phillyprof03 But I’ve found if you have data hard to dispute. “Shrinking budgets” Are they? “adjuncts do less work” Do they? #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:39
@VCVaile arrived late ¾ thru so just followed #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:47
@VCVaile arrived late ¾ thru so just followed #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:47
@VCVaile gr8 convo & important, esp about hours—much dissension because of #ACA #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:49
@Comprof1 @phillyprof03 There were changes and contract labor got benefits back. If we have data, we can file complaints, demand equity. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:49
@Comprof1 @phillyprof03 No, not admins. they won’t do anything. Labor board, class action suits (or threats), lrg agregate voice. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:51
@VCVaile being more or less forced to work more hours than reported could make ground for wage theft—tricky though #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:51
@Comprof1 @phillyprof03 True. Not fair. But will stay status quo if no one takes up banner. that’s how they get away with it now. #AdjunctChat 4/1/14 17:51
@VCVaile laws for class action have changed since impt wins—harder now to qualify a case #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:52
@VCVaile not impossible just trickier #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:53
@VCVaile Don Erons in CO thinks extending #academicfreedom is key to protect right to speak out, protest #adjunctchat 4/1/14 17:54
