Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, May 27 at 4:00pm EDT is:

LinkedIn for Adjuncts

The chat will be facilitated b Melissa Venable @melissa_venable.

A post with background information and several links of ideas and suggestions may be found at LinkedIn Strategies for Adjunct Faculty.

Many adjunct and part-time higher education instructors often lament that they work and feel alone, so let’s spend some time exploring the art of professional networking and connecting with one another via LinkedIn.

All adjunct, contingent, part-time, visiting, and non-tenure track instructors, along with their allies, in higher education are welcome to #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, May 27, from 4:00-5:00pm EDT. Even if you do not readily fit into the above, #AdjunctChat is open to all!

Want to facilitate an #AdjunctChat? You do not have to be an expert on the topic, but rather somebody with an interest in something related to adjunct experiences who has a desire to facilitate a discussion. More information about it may be found at How Can I Facilitate an #AdjunctChat?

@Comprof1 @fabianbanga @KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer That was me last week. #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:12
@deborahbrian @fabianbanga Hi Fabian – first time I’ve actually made it to #adjunctchat on time, I think! 5/20/14 17:12
@KateMfD A1: Australia has its own slightly weird internal divisions between university types. See @deborahbrian “G08”. #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:13
@JeffreyKeefer @Acahacker OK, here is your challenge — can you explain human geography to a newbie in a single Tweet? #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:13
@Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer WHS/ OHS, not for profit and corporate governance. And co-hosting CASA w/ @KateMfD #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:13
@lindathestar I teach at a rural campus of a uni in two schools, Education and Health Sciences #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:13
@deborahbrian @KateMfD definitely weird 😉 #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:13
@unicasual @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer we cover all academic and general/professional staff. #NTEU brought together 5 uni unions in 1993. #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:13
@KateMfD @UCUAnti_Cas @JeffreyKeefer Didn’t know that covered prisons too — is that the case in Australia, @NTEUNational? #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:13
@JeffreyKeefer @deborahbrian Good thing online communities and chats are forgiving of “time” !! #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:14
@fabianbanga @lindathestar hi Australia, welcome to #adjunctchat / Fabian from Berkeley, CA, USA 5/20/14 17:14

@deborahbrian @JeffreyKeefer True – and I enjoy catching up afterwards, even if I can’t make it to #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:15
@JeffreyKeefer Q2 What terms are used to describe instructors who are not employed on an ongoing basis? #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:15
@UCUAnti_Cas RT @unicasual: @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer we cover all academic and general/professional staff. #NTEU brought together 5 uni unions in 1993. … 5/20/14 17:15
@Comprof1 @lindathestar Good point. I teach in small city but most students are from NYCity area. #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:15
@KateMfD @Comprof1 @Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer Is teaching across disciplines common for US adjuncts? #AdjunctChat? 5/20/14 17:15
@CAPAWca @Comprof1 That’s part of our disciplinary “flexibility” – we teach across disciplines sometimes to survive #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:15
@NTEUNational @KateMfD @UCUAnti_Cas @JeffreyKeefer no but we cover adult and community ed some TAFEs and research institutes #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:16

@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 5/20/14 17:18
@deborahbrian A2 in Australia, we’re called “casual academics” or “sessional academics” or just “casuals” within #highered context #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:18
@unicasual @Comprof1 I’m curious about thatt too @Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:18
@Comprof1 @KateMfD @Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer It is in my experience. I was “internationalist” and “language” so in many depts. #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:18
@Acahacker @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Cross-disciplinarian here too! You have to be I think, esp if working as a sessional (another term!) #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:18
@KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer Here we use “sessional” academics and, very commonly, “casuals”. “Adjuncts” refers to something else. #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:18
@fabianbanga @NTEUNational welcome to #adjunctchat

@KateMfD @UCUAnti_Cas @JeffreyKeefer

5/20/14 17:18
@VCVaile the smaller the campus, the more likely we’ll teach more areas, like good garden mules ~ ride, drive, plow, snake logs #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:18
@Comprof1 @KateMfD @Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer Also helps to piece together enough work. #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:18
@uniacademic #AdjunctChat Q2 sessional, casual, temporary, precarious workers, disposable academics, ” the staff downstairs” 5/20/14 17:18
@Acahacker @fabianbanga Absolutely. I love teaching but Money Talks #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:19
@JeffreyKeefer A2 In the US, part-time instructors in higher education are usually called adjuncts #AdjunctChat! 5/20/14 17:19
@VCVaile what term is best understood globally? #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:19
@CAPAWca A2; nomenclature differs by institution and collective agreement 1/2 #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:19
@deborahbrian @fabianbanga in Australia, there are a small number of old, sandstone universities, and a larger number of new uni’s > #adjunctchat @KateMfD 5/20/14 17:19
@lindathestar @Comprof1 Most of my students are from rural places & many refer rural city not capital city for uni. Lowish entry score #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:20
@CAPAWca A2: some places part-time, sessional, and in Quebec charge(e)s de cours #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:20
@Acahacker @Comprof1 @KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer Yes, we’re always talking here bout our talents piecing together lil bits of contracts. #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:20
@JeffreyKeefer A2 PT faculty in HE can also be part-time or sessional or even Visiting Faculty #AdjunctChat! 5/20/14 17:20
@CAPAWca #AdjunctChat (in Canada, we don’t use the term adjunct commonly) 5/20/14 17:20
@KateMfD Q2. Here “adjunct” refers often to a professional (e.g. doctor, lawyer) who also has an honorary teaching position #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:20
@JeffreyKeefer RT @VCVaile: what term is best understood globally? #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:20

@fabianbanga @KateMfD in some area, you need an FSA in the subject (no 4 private univ/colleges) #adjunctchat @Comprof1 @Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer 5/20/14 17:21
@JeffreyKeefer RT @KateMfD: Q2. Here “adjunct” refers often to a professional (e.g. doctor, lawyer) who also has an honorary teaching position #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:21
@UCUAnti_Cas @JeffreyKeefer Q2 – a confusing array of terms – part time, hourly paid, fixed term, zero hours, sessional, even consultant! #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:21
@Comprof1 @deborahbrian I have been “instructor” “adjunct” “term instructor” “visiting professor””lecturer” (I know last is unique to US) #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:21
@lindathestar @Comprof1 Not all courses have low entry req; some highly competitive. Makes common Heath Sci 1st yr complex to teach #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:21
@VCVaile @KateMfD like Dozent in Germany #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:21
@unicasual @CAPAWca interesting. employment conditions vary much across nomenclature? #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:21
@Acahacker @Comprof1 @KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer I feel extremely lucky to be based in a discipline that really fits into so many others #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:21
@deborahbrian @fabianbanga < not very different in function, but older ones more research-focused, more prestigious > #adjunctchat @KateMfD 5/20/14 17:22
@CAPAWca #AdjunctChat as #badmin thrives on dividing us, perhaps arriving at a common term would be a way to promote definitional solidarity… 5/20/14 17:22
@KateMfD @VCVaile Adjunct really doesn’t mean the same here, but to connect to you all we have to work with/around it. #AdjunctChat. 5/20/14 17:22
@UCUAnti_Cas @JeffreyKeefer Q2 A ….also #casualised, #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:22
@fabianbanga @deborahbrian the separation here is between private and public / big differences @KateMfD #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:22
@JeffreyKeefer Q2 I did my PhD in the UK and interviewed doct cand around the world, as such I learned different terms for the “same” thing! #AdjunctChat! 5/20/14 17:22
@uniacademic Can’t think of any other profession where workers are commonly tagged by employment status? #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:23
@KateMfD @UCUAnti_Cas @JeffreyKeefer Do you use “fractional”? What does that mean? #AdjunctChat Q2 5/20/14 17:23

@CAPAWca @unicasual #AdjunctChat Not really if we are speaking of per-course pay. But nomenclature can conceal labour divisions 5/20/14 17:23
@JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD @VCVaile I know what you mean; sometimes finding something that most can make work helps with community & networking #AdjunctChat! 5/20/14 17:23

@KateMfD @uniacademic That’s a huge point: the designation is already (always) about what’s limited. #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:25

@JeffreyKeefer While we are about to move on, feel free to continue discussing Q1 or Q2 as you join in! #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:25
@UCUAnti_Cas @KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer Yes, but this usually refers to secure work – e.g. 0.5, 0.8 of a full time, secure contract #adjunctchat. Q2 A 5/20/14 17:25
@Acahacker Q2 In Australia we refer to casuals, sessionals. Not adjuncts tho’- for us, refer to retired profs return’g to teach undergrad #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:25
@Comprof1 @deborahbrian A2 Also, difference between TA (teaching assistant) and adjunct in US. #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:26
@JeffreyKeefer Any other terms for part-time instructors or faculty? A2 #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:26
@CAPAWca #AdjunctChat sometimes term can be misleading. Some contract staff hired for just a course, others for years. 5/20/14 17:26
@KateMfD @fabianbanga @deborahbrian Ask us in two years’ time. Our government is keen on US models. #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:26
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 How common is #Adjunctivism, or reliance on outsourcing to part-time instructors, where you are? #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:26
@Acahacker @CAPAWca @unicasual Pay per course isn’t as common here. But it does happen. And when it does> much worse off. #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:27
@fabianbanga @deborahbrian @deborahbrian Interesting! Definitely a national history and politic connection with this reality #adjunctchat @KateMfD 5/20/14 17:27
@KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer A3 This is the common sense question, and it’s really hard to answer because of the way we count. @unicasual? #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:28
@CAPAWca A3: Not as bad as US (yet) abt 50% of all u/g courses. We have good unionization rate #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:28
@deborahbrian @Comprof1 yes, difference here is between casual academic (lecturer and course coordinator) and tutor (also casual role) #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:28

** This #AdjunctChat will meet at 5:00pm EDT on Tues, May 20. Click HERE for timezone conversion **

The topic for this #AdjunctChat is:

“Global Experiences of Adjunct Faculty in Higher Education”

This chat is focused on global / international experiences of adjunct / contingent / part-time higher education teaching staff. As such, it will be led by an international group consisting of participants from Australia, the UK, Canada, and the US — Kate Bowles @KateMfD, UniCasual @unicasual, Karina @Acahacker, UCUAntiCasualisation @UCUAnti_Cas , CAPAW @CAPAWca, and Jeffrey Keefer @JeffreyKeefer.

You know what your experiences are like as an adjunct or part-time university instructor, but in a networked world you are not alone! In fact, the adjunct experience is something increasingly common across the globe, and that itself is the focus of this #AdjunctChat.

These are the questions that are intended to guide the synchronous discussion:

Q1 What country and institution type do you teach in? #AdjunctChat

Q2 What terms are used to describe instructors who are not employed on an ongoing basis? #AdjunctChat

Q3 How common is #Adjunctivism, or reliance on outsourcing to part-time instructors, where you are? #AdjunctChat

Q4 What strategies have adjuncts and casuals taken at your institution to improve employment conditions? #AdjunctChat

Q5 What opportunities exist sharing and networking globally? #AdjunctChat

Q6 What are some possible next steps? #AdjunctChat

All adjunct, contingent, part-time, visiting, and non-tenure track instructors, along with their allies, in higher education are welcome to this #AdjunctChat that will meet at 5:00pm EDT on Tues, May 20. Click HERE for timezone conversion.

Want to facilitate an #AdjunctChat? You do not have to be an expert on the topic, but rather somebody with an interest in something related to adjunct experiences who has a desire to facilitate a discussion. More information about it may be found at How Can I Facilitate an #AdjunctChat?

@medmethods Good evening #AdjunctChat from Scotland. I’m a researcher in education at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. 5/13/14 16:13
@FromPhDtoLife @JeffreyKeefer What do you mean by “equalize”? Equal to what? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer For today’s #AdjunctChat, I am using technology use in education, educational technology, or technology enhanced learning interchangeably. 5/13/14 16:14
@KateMfD If you’re up early #auscasuals, #AdjunctChat is on. Topic: is tech helping, or not? http://t.co/gmLEeKSCsP (@rebeccagoodway) 5/13/14 16:14
@VCVaile Hi…was here early, went to check notifications & got in a conversation #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:14
@JeffreyKeefer @medmethods Welcome from Scotland! I actually did my PhD @LancasterUni just south of you! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:15
@JeffreyKeefer Let’s consider the first question for today’s #AdjunctChat, and see how it fits. 5/13/14 16:16
@JeffreyKeefer Q1 Do you (attempt to) use technology with your students? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:16
@VCVaile anyway here I am but still not sure what as…adjunct issues blogger & social media person #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:16
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile Welcome! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:16
@VCVaile A-1 since mid 90s #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:16
@JeffreyKeefer Q1 For me, I use the required LMS systems and try to use Twitter and increasingly online video clips #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile Q1 So you use blogs and #SoMe? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:17
@VCVaile At UCDavis in 90s stus knew more than complit me new to computing so they taught me a lot #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:17
@manville71 @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat I use a technology component in most class sessions. Blackboard is essential for out of class work. 5/13/14 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer Q1 I know some people use other #SoMe such as LinkedIn or Fb, though I have never tried those #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife By Equalizing, I had in mind getting out what we put in #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer @manville71 Welcome! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @manville71 Do you use Blackboard as it is required, or do you see any value in it of itself? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:19
@VCVaile Equalizing…huge diff btwn required & optional or having flexibilty #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:19
@medmethods Q1 Yes, I teach post grad Education & Social Science research methods online (& in person) #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:20
@KateMfD Is technology really some separate special thing in #highered? What doesn’t count? PowerPoint? Email? #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:20
@rjhogue Hi everyone, I’m here briefly … #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile I recall when students knew more, though with such a variety of tools, I am wondering about the ROI on our using them #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:20
@rjhogue RT @JeffreyKeefer Q1 Do you (attempt to) use technology with your students? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:20
@VCVaile @KateMfD I consider email tech, if I used PPT I might that too #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile Indeed, along with feeling we get out of them some of what we put in #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:21
@rjhogue Q1) My class is about technology – so I use technology – but mostly it is Blackboard and my blog & wiki #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @medmethods We have something in common, as I teach graduate research! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @rjhogue Welcome for as long as you can make it! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:21
@manville71 @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat I use it for discussion boards, journal, all media storage…… 5/13/14 16:21
@rjhogue I’m a little careful about what I put where – so I make sure I can take what I want with me. #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:22
@FromPhDtoLife @JeffreyKeefer Ah I see #AdjunctChat. Is tech a make-work project or does it have real value for adjuncts/instructors? 🙂 5/13/14 16:22
@GracieG @VCVaile I often know more than some students about navigating Blackboard or whatever. I took 1 workshop. Big digital divide #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:22
@VCVaile @JeffreyKeefer too many tools at once w/o flexibility lowers ROI…raises frustration levels #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer @rjhogue Do you use those three as you find them the most useful for your needs? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer RT @VCVaile: @KateMfD I consider email tech, if I used PPT I might that too #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile @KateMfD Indeed, we forget at times how much we use (rely?) on email #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:22
@medmethods @JeffreyKeefer Yes, it’s the most enjoyable part of my work! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:23
@VCVaile @GracieG but not necessarily generational…also stus will be better at using what they are used to on their own #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer Q1 Thinking about tech use, it seems many people use some tech in their teaching now #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:23
@KateMfD @VCVaile We’re often unclear about definitions of tech then miss how these drive discourse on tech. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer Q1 Is anybody using anything that was not used 2-3 or 3-5 years ago, if you were teaching then? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer @medmethods I love teaching research #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:24
@KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile The politics of defining something as tech brings in all the stuff about innovation, disruption etc #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:25
@KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile The politics of defining something as tech brings in all the stuff about innovation, disruption etc #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:25
@VCVaile G+ hangouts & communities #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:25
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer Yes. It was essential to me this bad winter with two schools & a giant commute #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer RT @KateMfD: @VCVaile We’re often unclear about definitions of tech then miss how these drive discourse on tech. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer Let’s think about Q2 now . . . How do your students respond with it? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:26
@VCVaile @KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer that is why use needs to be dialog…not imposed top down w/o taking time to ask abt comfort zones etc #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:26
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile Q1 Great use of new tech! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:26
@KateMfD MT @claudiakincaid: “education is a material practice.” That’s a great way to look at it. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:26
@JeffreyKeefer @GracieG What did you use? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:26
@JeffreyKeefer Q2 I find my students are often not the biggest users of Twitter #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:27
@averageacademic RT @KateMfD: MT @claudiakincaid: “education is a material practice.” That’s a great way to look at it. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:27
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer BlackBoard for reminders, assignments and discussion. Email to keep communication from drying up. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:27
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer #Adjunctchat My students have a PebblePad assignment I have to mark. I have yet to be given PP login & semester nearly over 5/13/14 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer Q2 In fact, if my students were any indication, Twitter would close overnight due to lack of that 20+ demographic #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:28
@medmethods @MAEducationUoC That must have sounded random! See #AdjunctChat for explanation for startling admission! 5/13/14 16:28
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer The other school had D2L and thankfully I didn’t miss there since it’s where I live b/c that system is blah #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer RT @KateMfD: MT @claudiakincaid: “education is a material practice.” That’s a great way to look at it. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:28
@GracieG @rjhogue Yes! This makes me nervous too #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD @claudiakincaid Great points! As an advocate of actor-network theory, I agree completely about material practices #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:29
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer I encourage students doing group work to use Facebook pages, Dropbox&Google docs to share & discuss group tasks #Adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:29
@VCVaile 2000-4 I taught developmental writing in computer lab to returning adults w/o computer skills…challenge #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @GracieG @rjhogue Can you talk more about this? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:30
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer My students were amused I used Twitter & admitted they couldn’t find good stuff like me. I tried to show them #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @medmethods @MAEducationUoC Amazing how these networks form, ehh? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 5/13/14 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat seems a rather global group today . . . so just wait until next week’s topic!! 5/13/14 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @GracieG So you demonstrated to them how to use it via yourself as an example? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile That does sound challenging as it does rewarding #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:32
@KateMfD I find Twitter is best to demonstrate as professional platform, not micro LMS. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:32
@medmethods @JeffreyKeefer @MAEducationUoC As if by magic – sorry, that’s a different chat! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:33
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer Yes. I tried to explain they could get far more than YOLO-type stuff. They couldn’t believe the sources I found #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:33
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer The few students who do use twitter show interesting & thoughtful sides of themselves #Adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer Q2 Likewise, many of them connect with me via LinkedIn, though I have not mastered that one very well #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:34
@JeffreyKeefer @GracieG Please, continue with an example if you can Q2 #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:34
@JeffreyKeefer @medmethods @MAEducationUoC Yes, that one is later . . . 🙂 #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:35
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar I do find my students learn Twitter DM functions, as that is the quickest way to get in touch with me #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:35
@AdjunctChat For anybody just joining us, today’s #AdjunctChat is Does Technology Add To or Equalize the Adjunct’s Work? http://t.co/9m9fL2QPJ3 5/13/14 16:36
@medmethods Q2 Cautiously. For many this is first encounter with online teaching. Many value chance to work at their own pace. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 What successes have you found through using technology enhanced learning? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat RT @skirrid: @JeffreyKeefer so if those <20 are not using Twitter, then where are they >> thats the place teachers must go 5/13/14 16:36

@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer I showed them how to search and find interests. Most didn’t think of news/prof. orgs’ accts. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @medmethods It is ironic that i used to teach entirely online, though now teach mainly F2F and blended #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:37

@JeffreyKeefer @GracieG That is a useful example for how to integrate technology into one’s work #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:38
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 I find connecting with students in real time (e.g., Skype or live Twitter DM) very helpful #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:38

@JeffreyKeefer RT @FromPhDtoLife: Marvelling at all the skills & experiences adjuncts acquire that are extremely transferable & in demand! #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @FromPhDtoLife Agreed; adjunct instructors often fail to communicate the variety of methods they master involving communication #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 Any other successes to share? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 Any other successes to share? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:40
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer It relates to finding sources out of one print/journal they already have. Like a chase #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer Perhaps challenges are more enticing to discuss? Q4 What challenges have you encountered? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer @GracieG So using what they have always done, but in a newer, faster, or more dynamic way? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:41
@polypel88 @JeffreyKeefer I always use technology with my students. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer Q4 One challenge I find is trying to catch up with technologies my students use that I do not #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @polypel88 Welcome! Which one(s) do you find most useful . . . or challenging? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:42
@rjhogue Q3) One tool I use a lot with students is screencastomatic – to show them quickly how to do something #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:43
@FromPhDtoLife @JeffreyKeefer & not just in huge category of “communication”! #adjunctchat proves you are creative resourceful learners etc etc 5/13/14 16:43
@KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer It’s a skillshare conversation. #AdjunctChat. 5/13/14 16:43
@JeffreyKeefer @rjhogue Q3 I have not seen that; can you share a link? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:44
@JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD Nicely stated, and a good way to model networked learning (we all teach and learn from one another) #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:45
@polypel88 Connectivity issues during #AdjunctChat today. Will have to read transcript. 5/13/14 16:45
@KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer Adjuncts/casuals often caught between weak digital skills of the professoriate and student rec-tech expertise. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:45
@medmethods Q4. The biggy: encouraging & structuring critical discussion, which demands ingenuity (I’m told!) #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:45
@fabianbanga Sorry #AdjunctChat / in a long meeting 5/13/14 16:46
@JeffreyKeefer Q4 Another challenge is the amount of time I spend learning a tool to meet the student needs and then struggling to apply it #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:46
@JeffreyKeefer Q5 Does using technology with your students add or save time or resources? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:47
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga That is fine; the chat will be here when you have time! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:47
@JeffreyKeefer @medmethods Wow, that is a mouthful there! Can you describe some of what you have in mind? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:48
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer @rjhogue Yes, Please!!!! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:48
@JeffreyKeefer @polypel88 Great; it will be here when you are ready! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:48
@JeffreyKeefer Q5 On the amount of time or resources has been a struggle for me #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:49
@Susan_Michelle_ Twitter connectivity issues funnily enough #adjunctchat If I can refer back to Q2 Some students for privacy reasons dont want to use tech 5/13/14 16:49
@LitProfSuz A4 Both. Students have access to me 24/7 & can answer questions anywhere. Not just class/office hrs #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:49
@JeffreyKeefer Q5 I tend not to account for the learning time or costs when gaining new tech mastery; that is a problem with being an adjunct #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:50
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz That makes it sound like you are expected to work 24/7, too! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:50

@JeffreyKeefer @Susan_Michelle_ Not to worry; there is no time on the internet (per se, at least in theory!!) #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:51
@medmethods Q5 Online higher in time to teaching. Asynchronous interaction demands out of hours chat to maintain student interest #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:51
@Susan_Michelle_ #adjunctchat Their position is understandable. Don’t want to push them into using 3rd party services they oppose 5/13/14 16:51
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer I’m off now to teach 2 extra classes for sick colleague. #Adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:51
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer Thank you Jeffrey. I often lurk in #Adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:51
@VCVaile I tend to think of learning new as something I do for myself…LMS aggravation excepted #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile Alas, it is easy to take one’s passion and give it away — that is something I find teachers often do — #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:52
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer But getting quick answers relieves stdt stress. Which is good in the long term #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Glad you could join in. Check out next week’s, too! #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer @medmethods Alas, that makes it seem tech adds work rather than eases or smooths it #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:53
@medmethods @JeffreyKeefer Developing & extending discussion of concepts rather than simply answering student questions #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Perhaps, though how did we manage this before? Q5 #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer Finally, the one we have all been waiting for . . . Q6 Is this all worth the effort? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:54
@JeffreyKeefer RT @medmethods: @JeffreyKeefer Developing & extending discussion of concepts rather than simply answering student questions #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:54
@JeffreyKeefer @medmethods So it sounds like it takes technology and instruction to a different, or deeper, level? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:54
@JeffreyKeefer Q6 Is this all worth the effort? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:54
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer They waited. But nobody likes to wait anymore, including me. 😉 #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:54
@JeffreyKeefer Q6 I suppose the extra time and commitment technology enhanced learning raises for the adjunct is a personal matter? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:55
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz I wonder if immediately answering then changes expectations or values? #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:55
@CAGS_OTTAWA RT @FromPhDtoLife: Marvelling at all the skills & experiences adjuncts acquire that are extremely transferable & in demand! #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:55
@medmethods @JeffreyKeefer Yes… but of a rewarding nature, I would say #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:55
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Yes – if nothing else, it prevents fossilation. #adjunctchat 5/13/14 16:56
@KateMfD @Susan_Michelle_ Yes, student privacy critical. Tech enthusiasm can forget this. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:56
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer But isn’t this the way of the world – mot just HE? Immediacy is the new currency (pun intended) #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:57
@JeffreyKeefer RT @KateMfD: @Susan_Michelle_ Yes, student privacy critical. Tech enthusiasm can forget this. #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:57
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Indeed, remaining current and timely is an ongoing educational task #AdjunctChat 5/13/14 16:58

#AdjunctChat Topic May 13 ~ Does Technology Add To or Equalize the Adjunct’s Work? (with @JeffreyKeefer)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, May 13 is:

Does Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Add To or Equalize the Adjunct’s Work?

The chat will be facilitated by Jeffrey Keefer @JeffreyKeefer.

Many advocates of technology use in education, educational technology, or even technology enhanced learning, often claim that using these systems, apps, or programs helps us to better teach, facilitate, or enact learning. They connect teachers and students all while saving time and, ultimately, money.

But, is this really the case?

When adjuncts use or attempt to use technologies with their students, does it really help to connect and promote education in new ways while saving resources? Is it worth the efforts, given how many of them happen on the adjunct’s own (unpaid) time? This is the focus of the May 13 #AdjunctChat (4:00pm EDT).

These are the questions that are intended to guide the synchronous discussion:

Q1 Do you (attempt to) use technology with your students?

Q2 How do your students respond with it?

Q3 What successes have you found through using technology enhanced learning?

Q4 What challenges have you encountered?

Q5 Does using technology with your students add or save time or resources?

Q6 Is this all worth the effort?

All adjunct, contingent, part-time, visiting, and non-tenure track instructors, along with their allies, in higher education are welcome to #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, May 13, from 4:00-5:00pm EDT. Even if you do not readily fit into the above, #AdjunctChat is open to all!

Interested in facilitating an #AdjunctChat in an area of your own interest? Take a look at How Can I Facilitate an #AdjunctChat?

Transcript from #AdjunctChat on 5/6/14 (with @rjhogue)

Colouful speech bubblesThis is the transcript from #AdjunctChat on 5/6/14 that was facilitated by @rjhogue..

The topic was What Digital Literacy Skills Do Adjuncts Need?.

All are welcome to our next #AdjunctChat on Tues, May 13. While the topic and facilitator are still being finalized, we are planning to continue with our chat at that time.

Want to facilitate an #AdjunctChat? You do not have to be an expert on the topic, but rather somebody with an interest in something related to adjunct experiences who has a desire to facilitate a discussion. More information about it may be found at How Can I Facilitate an #AdjunctChat?

@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz I had trouble with videos anytime I’ve used. Students don’t find it “academic” enough. #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:49
@fabianbanga I archive (audio) all my classes in youtube here (public) https://t.co/mPko45PQeg #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:49
@npmaven @LitProfSuz That’s been a recent development. Different from earlier classes. #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:49
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz I agree; more of a reason this digital native rubbish gets me hot under the collar #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:49
@JeffreyKeefer @KateMfD For you, you are right on time! Welcome!! #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:50
@LitProfSuz Hey @JeffreyKeefer – didn’t you once mention doing an #adjunctchat on LinkedIn. There is a lot I would like to learn about it. @rjhogue 5/6/2014 16:50
@Comprof1 @rjhogue Our uni is very concerned about FERPA so any Uni based tech is wiped. I can’t force students to use non-uni tech. #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:50
@anamfores @rjhogue @npmaven Has this merge been a problem or enhancement, and why? #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:51
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz I hear lots of buzz around flipped classrooms, but it seems like even more work for the adjunct faculty #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:51
@Comprof1 @rjhogue I give them option for alternative if we’re using “public” tech (non-uni such as blogger, edmodo, etc…) #adjunctchat. 5/6/2014 16:51
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I actually just taught my undergrads some Facebook tricks – surprised they didn’t know. Can’t assume! #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Indeed! Seems these tech issues for adjuncts are rather useful, especially when sharing best practices. Interested? #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:52
@npmaven @anamfores @rjhogue Mostly different, with a touch of “annoying.” 🙂 We survived. #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Even THAT would make for a great #AdjunctChat! 5/6/2014 16:53
@rjhogue @anamfores @npmaven I think an enhancement … it makes my “I’m bored let’s look at Facebook” time more productive … #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:53
@Comprof1 @rjhogue So far, all students have used all tech outside of uni. Some do use pseudonyms they need to give me for grades. #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:53
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Yeah – making/finding videos that are useful is tough/time consuming. I’ll see how it works. #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:53
@npmaven Some of my most challenged were my “digital natives.” Adults more likely to commit (and sometimes end up liking). #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:53
@npmaven I love my adult students 🙂 #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer I think an #AdjunctChat on any software app resources and best practices with Facebook, http://t.co/XEwecH6S2q, Linkedin, etc. would be good 5/6/2014 16:54
@rjhogue OK .. final question Q5) What other digital literacy skills do adjuncts need? #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:54
@npmaven RT @rjhogue OK .. final question Q5) What other digital literacy skills do adjuncts need? #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:54

@anamfores @rjhogue @npmaven that’s good then! #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:54

@JeffreyKeefer RT @npmaven: RT @rjhogue OK .. final question Q5) What other digital literacy skills do adjuncts need? #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:56
@Comprof1 @rjhogue I think knowing how to make your work portable from one context/location to another is important. #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:56
@npmaven @rjhogue So agree – especially when used to limit notion of what adults are capable of doing. #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:56

@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @rjhogue Can you talk more about what you have in mind about this? #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:57
@VCVaile @rjhogue @npmaven same here! I’m 70…no patience w/ 50 somethings telling me they are too old to learn #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:57
@anamfores @KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Because this is all outside work, not part of the class & on your own, no? #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:57

@Comprof1 @npmaven I choose 1 new tech a semester (more than that is overload) to try to learn/put into course. #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:57
@npmaven Great goal! RT @Comprof1 @npmaven I choose 1 new tech a semester (more than that is overload) to try to learn/put into course. #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:57
@VCVaile @Comprof1 @npmaven yes, pacing makes a big diff #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:58
@KateMfD @anamfores @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz And using own resources. It’s a major pay-to-work zone. #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:58
@rjhogue What about digital media skill? PowerPoint? Prezi? #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 16:58
@LitProfSuz @anamfores @KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer Yep. But I think it is better for the students #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:58
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Which was your most recent one? #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:59
@anamfores @VCVaile @rjhogue @npmaven AT least I don’t tell you that! I’m trying, as I promised Jeff I would 😉 It may take me a while… #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 16:59

@AdjunctChat We have an opening for #AdjunctChat next week on May 13; any takers with all these great tech and digital ideas? 5/6/2014 17:00
@Charlesknight @KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Common assumptions – office, continuity of access to services (VLE, email), single role etc #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 17:00
@npmaven @LitProfSuz @rjhogue Twitter a core component of my PLN #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 17:00
@LitProfSuz @Charlesknight @KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer True. Though 1 of my uni’s requires computer access for entry & initial class on use. #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 17:00
@AdjunctChat Facilitating an #AdjunctChat means sharing a little of what you know and then facilitating a discussion around it and engaging others 5/6/2014 17:00

@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer I think #OpenEd a complex concept. like the Theory of Evolution; which is much more than the Theory of Evolution #AdjunctChat 5/6/2014 17:03
@rjhogue @KateMfD @Charlesknight @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Instructional design often considers ‘student’ but not ‘instructor’ #adjunctchat 5/6/2014 17:03
