Needs / Expectations for Activist Contingent Gatherings: #cocalXI #altCOCAL

Are you thinking about attending COCAL XI in New York City in August, 2014? With a conference theme “Shaping an Equitable & Democratic Future For Higher Education—The Way Forward,” we have to wonder about what you need or want from such an event. That is the focus of this #AdjunctChat.

The chat will be led and facilitated by @slicksean, @PrecariousFac , and @VCVaile.

Our discussion will focus on these questions:

Q1: Are you planning to attend #cocalXI? #AdjunctChat #altCOCAL

Q2: If you plan to attend #cocalXI what do you want or expect? #AdjunctChat #altCOCAL

Q3: If you do not plan to attend #cocalXI why not? #AdjunctChat #altCOCAL

Q4: What are some next steps for activist adjuncts? #cocalXI #AdjunctChat #altCOCAL

All adjunct, contingent, part-time, visiting, casual, and non-tenure track instructors, along with their allies and friends in higher education, are welcome to #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, July 22, from 4:00-5:00pm EDT.

Even if you do not readily fit into the above, #AdjunctChat is open to all! The more perspectives, the better we all learn with and from one another.

To quote from the post that @Comprof1 wrote for today’s chat:

In this week’s #adjunctchat, we will trade some best practices for using mobile technology (m-learning) both in traditional classes and online classes. We will look at the use of mobile technology in academics as a whole and the challenges for adjuncts specifically.
