The topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, September 2 at 4:00pm EDT is:
What are you doing this year to keep your teaching fresh?
September is often considered back to school time, even for those of us who may teach odd schedules or all year long. Out with the old, and in with the new!
Have you taught the same classes before but want to do something new or different, even if it is just to maintain your own interests and passions (not to mention to meet the ever changing needs of our college-age or adult learners)? This #AdjunctChat may just be what you need to share what you are doing or try to pick up something new. Hey, even just chatting with other adjuncts at the beginning of September may just help us to not feel so . . . alone.
The chat will be led and facilitated by @JeffreyKeefer and will be guided by these questions:
Q1 What are you teaching in the fall semester? #AdjunctChat
Q2 Have you taught this before? If so, how often? #AdjunctChat
Q3 Where do you look for new or different ideas to teach? #AdjunctChat
Q4 What new things are you hoping to try in your courses this semester? #AdjunctChat
Q5 How will you determine if they are successful? #AdjunctChat
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, September 2, 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.
