@JeffreyKeefer I am sensitive to the knowing that many colleagues are attending #cocalXI here in #NYC right now and who cannot join #AdjunctChat today. 8/5/14 16:06
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 8/5/14 16:06
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Can you share a bit about what you teach as an adjunct / contingent / sessional / casual instructor? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:07
@Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer I like being able to have a flexible schedule and learn new things. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:07

@kristine_tx @JeffreyKeefer Paralegal technology studies at @pulaskitech (via distance learning thru @Blackboard) #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:09
@lindathestar It is my fifth year teaching this subject. Enquiry-based learning & group work w 2 hour workshops. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx @JeffreyKeefer @pulaskitech @Blackboard Wonderful, welcome to #AdjunctChat! 8/5/14 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx @JeffreyKeefer @pulaskitech @Blackboard Wonderful, welcome to #AdjunctChat! 8/5/14 16:10
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx Also teach marktng, international/global studies, writing, and ESL. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:10
@Comprof1 @lindathestar Do you get to change up your teaching? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:11
@LitProfSuz Hi #adjunctchat. I teach at 2 places, Adult Accelerated Humanities & Education. Now also editing. 8/5/14 16:11
@AdjunctChat Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is “What do you LIKE about adjuncting?” and some background information is http://t.co/SXmUWI73Va 8/5/14 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 8/5/14 16:12
@Comprof1 @lindathestar One thing I like about adjuncting is I’ve been asked to teach a wide range of courses I wouldn’t have thought to. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:12
@lindathestar @Comprof1 We have a workshop guide but there is space for individual creativity eg icebreakers, case studies, examples. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx @JeffreyKeefer @pulaskitech @Blackboard That must make for some interesting teaching stories #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:13
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz What is adult accelerated humanities? Sounds interesting. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer While some have already started, I want to make sure everybody can see our first Question to help guide our #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:14
@JeffreyKeefer Q1: What do you like about being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:14
@Comprof1 @lindathestar I sometimes feel I have more freedom in my class than tenure track faculty. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:14
@lindathestar @Comprof1 I’ve taught about 6 subjects in Education & same in Public Health. Good variety. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:15
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 It is an accelerated bachelor degree for working adults in multiple subjects. I teach the Humanities courses. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:15
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I prefer visiting professor because I also had access to research funding and colleagues/conferences. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:16
@lindathestar @Comprof1 Freedom in course or freedom to go home early when teaching is over? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:16
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Is it a cross discipline course? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer A1 I like student interaction. My classes are graduate and doctoral, so I think of my learners as early-stage colleagues #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:17
@AdjunctChat RT @JeffreyKeefer: Q1: What do you like about being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:17
@Comprof1 @lindathestar Freedom in course. My current uni requires office hours & we get student evals which I need to continue contract. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:18
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer I’m trying to think of adjunct/casual specific benefits. Teaching’s overall benefit is the students! #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer A1: I also like the access to the library and database resources #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:18
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I find when I have a good class of students, I enjoy learning from them. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:19
@injenuity RT @JeffreyKeefer: Q1: What do you like about being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:19
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 I teach Intro to Literature; English; Romantisim; Modernism; Contemporary Studies. Some are cross discipline #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer A1: I like the entire teaching and learning process; while my courses are all applied, they do allow for some theory, too #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Last yr in my Speech Comm class, had a group of inner city 1st gen uni students. Really impressed w/ them #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Can you think of smething off-hand you have learned from your students? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@lindathestar @Comprof1 As a sex educator (which isn’t what I’m teaching) I warn them I use sex ed examples to make up for lack of SRE #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@LitProfSuz A1) Although it can be hectic, I like the challenge of picking up & designing new to me courses #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:20
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Learned what their life was like which is so diff than mine in small town/more rural NY. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Some people teach as an adjunct / casual for the money, too #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:21
@lindathestar @Comprof1 It’s good to have freedom to use professional & life skills in teaching. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar I KNOW the money is often not great, but I have heard of people supplementing FT work or retirement in this way #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:21
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Yeah, I would be lost w/o these resources, limited though they r. Also have access to IRB to continue research #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar I do not teach for the money; it is not quite enough to make it worth the time and effort. It is more a passion #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @lindathestar Can you talk more about this? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:23
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer The money is paying my mortgage right now. Very handy. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:23
@LitProfSuz A1) As a grad stdnt, it was good to get experience teaching in HE for CV #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @lindathestar I am proposing a new course, something I have been quite interested in teaching, and it is a gap now #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx What do you like about teaching as an #adjunct? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:24
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I used some of concepts from my dissertation & was able to get different perspective on group comm from discuss #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz A1: and now? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:24
@robinyap @JeffreyKeefer Hey I get to join part of #adjunctchat today. A1 the students, the knowledge transfer, the aha moments 8/5/14 16:25
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Being flexible and open to exploring new topics is stimulating and fun. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:25
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Being flexible and open to exploring new topics is stimulating and fun. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:25
@LitProfSuz A1) I like the more flexible schedule. Not expected to be an campus like FTT. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer @robinyap Welcome to #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer @robinyap Can you talk more about what you have in mind about knowledge transfer with students? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:26
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar I love creating a new course.Sometimes difficult to convince dept head. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:26
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 There is a freedom in not having tenure I could be risking by being adventurous. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:26
@Comprof1 @robinyap @JeffreyKeefer Your aha moments or students? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:27
@JeffreyKeefer Q1: What do you like about being an adjunct, contingent, or sessional faculty member? #AdjunctChat #ECRchat #phdchat #auscasuals 8/5/14 16:27
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Well, I have more than enough experience for my CV, but I am expanding my repertoire #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:27
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Although if I had tenure I’d still want to be creative and pushing boundaries for best teaching #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:27
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Building CVs can be engaging, but can you talk more about why or how you are trying to expand it? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:27
@Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer Or trying new courses that maybe don’t fit a single dept. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Ahh, the risks of freedom! #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer Let’s proceed with Q2 #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer Q2: What difference do you think your work and commitment makes? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:29
@lindathestar @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’m not sure if as a casual I could introduce a new course. There is one I see a need for… #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:29
@Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer Me too. Different type of risk. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar @Comprof1 Interesting how this seems to relate to the teaching vs. research dualism, if such a thing exists #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:30
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Can’t say it is a plan,but I am frequently picking up new classes. I’m a generalist-can teach across disciplines #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @robinyap Remember to use the #AdjunctChat tag so everybody can see it! 8/5/14 16:30
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer The difference is purely for the students. Many say I’m the only one that knows their name. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar @Comprof1 Have you considered suggesting it? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:30
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Not paid for research or writing time as a casual 😦 #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:31
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer As a FTT, I might not get that opportunity to teach across areas. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:31
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I should. You’ve inspired me now. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:31
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Many TT in dept have 100+ students and TA’s. Time only to get to know grad students #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Yes, those FTT faculty are often too focused to be broad #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar @Comprof1 Excellent! Let us know how it goes!! #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:33
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer I get great evaluations. I aim to develop good practitioners and encourage wide thinking. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:33
@Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer Actually, new course always gives me a good excuse to do research (otherwise not paid for). #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer A2: I think a difference I make with my students is I try to bridge the research / practice divide with my expertise in both #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:34
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Actually, Q2 is what makes me question continuing as adjunct. sometimes don’t feel there is any difference. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:34
@bgrassbluecrab @Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer generally not paid for class prep either, though #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:35
@JeffreyKeefer @bgrassbluecrab @Comprof1 @lindathestar Yes, this is not something to do for the money, alas. That is another conversation! #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:35
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Then again, lots of people do seem to get up and do their jobs every day without thinking about making a difference #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:36
@Comprof1 @bgrassbluecrab @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer True (although sometimes if specialized may get higher pay), but good excuse.#AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 A2: I thrive on mission-driven organizations and cultures, so that is what gets me out of bed in the morning #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @bgrassbluecrab Welcome to #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@Comprof1 @bgrassbluecrab @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer I love research so if I need to research to teach a class, I don’t feel “stale” #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer The difference I make for students is as a teacher – adjunct or not does not matter #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@AdjunctChat Q2: What difference do you think your work and commitment makes? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Can you talk more about what you have in mind? A2 #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:38
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Just got a compliment from FT colleague, my research/publishing is spurring other FT to do it. Shucks! #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:38
@kristine_tx A2 Provides #practical experience to my #students while giving back to my profession. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:39
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer My passion for the topic, and connection to students is the same if adjunct or on contract #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:40
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer My passion for the topic, and connection to students is the same if adjunct or on contract #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:40
@robinyap @JeffreyKeefer A2 Applicability of the theories since I’m a practitioner-academic. Sharing experiences is key #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:40
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer It’s an approach to teaching irrespective of conditions … tho’ as conditions worsen I give less😞 #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:42
@lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer Thanks for including me today. Have to get up & go teach now. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:43
@Comprof1 Q2 #adjunctchat also like workg out solutions to problems students have or may have. I love they come back & say remember when. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:43

@LitProfSuz A2) As compared to my FTT advisor, I think I have more work/life balance. Less pressure, committees, campus time #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:44
@Comprof1 @lindathestar @JeffreyKeefer You need to. Also I think its important for students to understand ed system & how it works. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:44
@JeffreyKeefer Q3: How do you reconcile this with the challenges being an adjunct faculty? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:45
@4KM May I drop in late to #AdjunctChat? 8/5/14 16:46
@Comprof1 Q2 sometimes I have an impact on my colleagues getting them to see diff perspective that is less academic #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:46
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Can you clarify this? Reconcile what? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:47
@4KM A1 May be repeating, but I like seeing the world through many lenses including scholar and practitioner #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:47
@Comprof1 RT @4KM: A1 May be repeating, but I like seeing the world through many lenses including scholar and practitioner #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:48
@4KM @Comprof1 It may be an illusion, but I think I can see academic cultures better by virtue of being a partial outsider #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:48
@JeffreyKeefer @4KM Of course; you are always welcome #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:49
@4KM @JeffreyKeefer I can do administrative work, but prefer to spend more time immersed in the learning process #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:50
@4KM @JeffreyKeefer Thanks Jeffrey #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:50

@VCVaile RT @4KM: Every time I join one of these chats I’m reminded there are 52 flavors of adjunct #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:52
@bgrassbluecrab @4KM I was just thinking the same thing. It’s really hard to generalize. Adjuncting is usu. part of more complex package #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:52
@4KM A3 Some adjuncts get pay comparable to full time faculty; some get a lot of respect; some aren’t 2nd class citizens #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:52
@Comprof1 @robinyap Any colleagues? I always went outside of dept. Also, i take advantage of training for network opportunities #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:53
@LitProfSuz A3) I haven’t reconciled. Some days I’m delighted, other days frustrated. Try to focus on gratitude. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:53
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Just when I have problem class or problem w/ dept. something comes up to offset it (i.e. research opp) #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:55
@4KM A3 I have met tenured faculty who are miserable. A bit like the kid who becomes a lawyer because his father wanted him to #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:55
@4KM A3 I have met tenured faculty who are miserable. A bit like the kid who becomes a lawyer because his father wanted him to #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:55
@YourDailyArt @JeffreyKeefer I like not being obligated to do extra work or committees but also waiting for 1st pay makes for a long summer. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:55
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz my adjunct experience has made me very marketable to diff depts as adjunct but not for TT 😦 #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:56
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Wonder sometimes if FT in one place might be easier. Get more respect. Have an affiliation etc. #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:57
@4KM Humans jump to conclusions when marginalized. Because I’m [fill in blank with woman or young or old or adjunct…] #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:57
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz But that is currently difficult to find. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:58
@Comprof1 RT @4KM: Humans jump to conclusions when marginalized. Because I’m [fill in blank with woman or young or old or adjunct…] #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 16:59
@bgrassbluecrab .@4KM that’s true, but i think it’s a fair generalization to say that adjunct is a marginalized title these days #adjunctchat 8/5/14 16:59
@Comprof1 @4KM how do you change this? #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:00

@JeffreyKeefer We are coming to the end of today’s #AdjunctChat with lots of food for thought. 8/5/14 17:00
@JeffreyKeefer As a result of today’s #AdjunctChat on What do you LIKE about adjuncting, what next steps do you have? 8/5/14 17:01

@JeffreyKeefer Better yet, as a result of today’s #AdjunctChat, what if anything did you learn? 8/5/14 17:01
@4KM I’m a bit distanced @bgrassbluecrab That term isn’t used where I work; adjunct friends give diverse perspectives on respect #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:02
@VCVaile @4KM @Comprof1 Edward Said said the same about viewing any culture #adjunctchat 8/5/14 17:02

@4KM No big changes for next steps. Plan to shift to thesis supervision for a while after course design/delivery completed #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:03
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer There are some advantages to being an adjunct & good reasons for people to choose this status. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:03
@VCVaile RT @4KM: Humans jump to conclusions when marginalized. Because I’m [fill in blank with woman or young or old or adjunct…] #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:04
@bgrassbluecrab terminology is an interesting aspect @4KM like ‘adjunct’ versus ‘visiting’ or other functional adjuncts #adjunctchat 8/5/14 17:04
@4KM Yes, I recall that. RT @VCVaile: @4KM @Comprof1 Edward Said said the same about viewing any culture #adjunctchat 8/5/14 17:04
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I think it’s important to distinguish between those that choose adjuncting and those who are forced into it #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:04
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Sorry; Q2 was about linking #adjunct work and commitment with making a difference; some may be at odds with this #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:05
@4KM If the university values applied scholarship, adjuncts can be the stars. #AdjunctChat 8/5/14 17:05
