@UCUAnti_Cas RT @JeffreyKeefer: Q1 What country and institution type do you teach in? #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:12
@Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer Good question. I’m a human geographer but as casual researcher, am currently involved in bits and pieces #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:12
@fabianbanga @Acahacker r you an Adjunct or TT researcher? #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:12

@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
@Comprof1 @Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat I actually cross disciplines & taught in comm, global studies, marketg/mgmt, & edtech #adjunctchat 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
@Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer Challenge accepted! Human geographers look at people’s relationships with space & place. How people shape place #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
@deborahbrian @fabianbanga < including some former institutes of technology and colleges of advanced education. > #adjunctchat @KateMfD 5/20/14 17:21
@JeffreyKeefer RT @CAPAWca: A2: some places part-time, sessional, and in Quebec charge(e)s de cours #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:21
@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
@unicasual @fabianbanga what’s an FSA? #adjunctchat @KateMfD @Comprof1 @Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer 5/20/14 17:23
@UCUAnti_Cas RT @JeffreyKeefer: A2 In the US, part-time instructors in higher education are usually called adjuncts #AdjunctChat! 5/20/14 17:23
@Comprof1 @lindathestar Some semesters I have lrg # students from rural NY (mountains/central) & very diff dynamic. #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:23
@UCUAnti_Cas RT @JeffreyKeefer: A2 PT faculty in HE can also be part-time or sessional or even Visiting Faculty #AdjunctChat! 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

@Comprof1 @deborahbrian A2 Titles have changed over the yrs. Also differs by institution instructor is non-phd Lecturer is Phd at our uni #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:25
@KateMfD @uniacademic That’s a huge point: the designation is already (always) about what’s limited. #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:25
@deborahbrian @fabianbanga not really, but we have intermediate level (TAFE) focused on vocational training with some pathways to uni #adjunctchat KateMfD 5/20/14 17:25
@unicasual @CAPAWca righto #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
@Acahacker @UCUAnti_Cas @JeffreyKeefer Zero hours? sounds ominous! #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:28
@fabianbanga @KateMfD @deborahbrian Hope they do not copy the neoliberalisation of #HigherEd we see here. #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:29
@Comprof1 @uniacademic In US, most services have “contract laborers”, “temps”, “FT permanent”, Fixed term contracts #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:29

@KateMfD @JeffreyKeefer A3 I have listened to university leaders saying we have very little casualisation. #AdjunctChat #smokeandmirrors 5/20/14 17:29
@CAPAWca @Acahacker It just adds to our precarity. We become “detachable” scholars #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:29

@KateMfD @CAPAWca Who collects your national data? #adjunctchat @NTEUNational 5/20/14 17:30
@CAPAWca @lindathestar We should ban the word “casual” – nothing casual abt our working conditions! #AdjunctChat 5/20/14 17:30
@UCUAnti_Cas @Acahacker @JeffreyKeefer Yes – it means ‘contract’ that does not guarantee a minimum number of hours. Becoming prolific in UK #adjunctchat 5/20/14 17:30
@lindathestar A3 #AdjunctChat I was offered work, agreed, had it withdrawn, then reinstated this semester. 5/20/14 17:31
