@JeffreyKeefer I am going to begin working though the questions and we can see what sorts of discussions occur, either now or later in the day #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer Q1 What are you teaching in the fall semester? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:12
@N1academy @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — I may be completely done with higher education (again); left the first time in 2011. 9/2/2014 16:12

@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga However,many may still be away, OR at least busily starting class! #AdjunctChat @Melissa_Venable @danieljbrunson @SponchPhD 9/2/2014 16:15
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy Thanks for the reply on the site http://t.co/8ovnvNL5NX #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy How about talking about what this experience is like closing a college? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy In some ways, that experience is just the opposite of today’s planned #AdjunctChat topic, and may make a valuable contrast. 9/2/2014 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the #AdjunctChat blog http://t.co/8ovnvNL5NX 9/2/2014 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Too bad you could not join the synchronous session, I would like to hear more about your use of clickers #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics In some ways clickers seem a bit impersonal, though I have not used them or seen them done well #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics I have seen clickers used rather poorly, and that was my only hands-on experience #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer Q2 Have you taught this before? If so, how often? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer A2 I have taught this research course many times before, though am always looking to improve it #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer A2 I find many of my learners come to the course with . . . let’s just say . . . mixed experiences with it previously #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 Where do you look for new or different ideas to teach? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 Where do you look for new or different ideas to teach? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer A3 I look anyplace I can for new ideas, and even though today’s #AdjunctChat is a bit quiet, I usually find some really useful ones here. 9/2/2014 16:26
@AndrewR_Physics .@JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat I talk for 10 mins then set clicker Q. Students think/calc their own answer& click response anonymously 1/2 9/2/2014 16:26
@AndrewR_Physics @JeffreyKeefer #Adjunctchat Then students discuss & critique their answers with neighbours for a few mins. Then revote. *Usually* more right 9/2/2014 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Ahh; what options for click types are there? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer Q4 What new things are you hoping to try in your courses this semester? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Are these clickers devices you bring in, or are they available via smartphone? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:29
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Sorry I’m late. I teach tonight & with bad weather & slow computer took a while to get online. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer A4 I am planning to use Twitter more directly with my students #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer A4 I will ask them to find people who are working in their research areas #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:31
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics I have decided to use index cards instead of clickers but my students like both. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer A4 I will also communicate more intentionally with my learners via Direct Tweets, something that makes phone texting obsolete #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Always glad to see you! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:32
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer That’s a great idea. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:32
@AndrewR_Physics @JeffreyKeefer #Adjunctchat Used to use Turning Point dedicated clicker system – more sophisticated – but cost $25-50 for clicker. Too much 9/2/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I think lots of people are in your same boat today, so to speak! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:33
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’m teaching speech presentation this semester. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @AndrewR_Physics I use index cards when I randomly assign groups; I write numbers and ask students to choose a card! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Wow, that does sound clostly #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:34
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’m going to try something I learned at uni retreat to assess level of knowledge of speech presentation. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:34
@AndrewR_Physics @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat I could use index cards, but Socrative does the counting for me #lazy Same principles! 9/2/2014 16:34
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer You have attributes that you ask students to categorize. Method of cat. will indicate level of knowledge of sub #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:35
@AndrewR_Physics @JeffreyKeefer #Adjunctchat there are still other systems where they charge a subscription per course to the student. Not acceptable to me! 9/2/2014 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Great! What level? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:36
@Comprof1 @AndrewR_Physics @JeffreyKeefer That’s why I use index cards. keep price down. I do it with students groups. #adjunctchat Preview Q on BLS. 9/2/2014 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Can you give an example? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:37
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer It’s a gateway course. Problem w/ variety of skills & speaking experience. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:38
@AndrewR_Physics @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer #Adjunctchat At prev uni ALL first year sci courses agreed to use them. We got deal on price & students happy 9/2/2014 16:38
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’ll give them speech problems (too long, not able to hear speaker, no gestures) then have students categorize #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Ahh, interesting #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Ahh, interesting #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:40
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Students that use physical/simple characteristics ( voice, movement) as categories not knowledgable #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:41
@LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat Hi everyone. Wow, that was a fast summer! 9/2/2014 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is “What are you doing this year to keep your teaching fresh?” http://t.co/8ovnvNL5NX 9/2/2014 16:41
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Students that use >sophisticated (audience problems, rhetoric, style) will have deeper understanding of speech #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer A4 I also hope my students will locate sources of evidence for questions they articulate, and then to ask them directly #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer Q5 How will you determine if they are successful? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Summer? What summer!?!?! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:43
@LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat I am teaching 2 new to me courses and 2 famik ar courses. I want to be more intentional @ formative assessments 9/2/2014 16:43
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Between my FT job and the two courses I taught, I did not see any time off at all. I know, balance . . . #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:43
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I choose one thing each semester to work on/try out. More and I get overwhelmed. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:44
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Perfect! That is related to Q5! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:45
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz I always start with outcomes, then design backwards. First what are goals/what I want them to be able to do. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:45
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 So your new thing this course is related to categorization, right? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:46
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I have been using @Trello heavily in the past 3 weeks (thank you!), and want to explore that with my students, too #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:47
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz New courses are tough b/c it takes long to develop outcomes Once I have good goals/outcomes, course comes together #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:47
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Wow, do I sense an instructional design process here!?!? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:47
@LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat A colleague & I will conduct a self-study of a new course. Thst should be interesting. 9/2/2014 16:48
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Correct. I’m going to try it 3 times this semester to see if learning is deeper. #adjunctchat 1st is tonight. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:48
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz My teaching training was based on experiential learning. This is also what I taught my ed students. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:49
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz That sounds interesting. What methodology will you be using? What is the goal of the study? #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:50
@JeffreyKeefer @JakeGrad @dpla Have not seen that resource before; can you talk about it? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:51
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz It also helps when everything goes south in class (i.e tech outage) to know where you were headed. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Would love to hear more about it! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer I will need to leave #AdjunctChat on time tonight as my course begins in an hour. 9/2/2014 16:53
@JakeGrad @JeffreyKeefer @dpla Sure. #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer For those in #AdjunctChat, please share a take-away from today . . . 9/2/2014 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer @JakeGrad @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @AndrewR_Physics @N1academy Would you consider facilitating an #AdjunctChat this month or next? 9/2/2014 16:55

#AdjunctChat Sept 2 ~ “What are you doing this year to keep your teaching fresh?” (@JeffreyKeefer)

Twitter_ChatThe 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.

@VCVaile @JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @CUNYadjuncts smaller scale made it easier…maybe start small, grow #adjunctchat 7/22/2014 16:56

@fabianbanga @slicksean Interesting the constant intention of the empire of appropriation of terms #postcolonialism #AdjunctChat 7/22/2014 16:57
@slicksean @fabianbanga yeah, in US segregation means one thing. I like two-tier system of academic labor. US #highered highly stratified. #adjunctchat 7/22/2014 16:58
@slicksean @fabianbanga hmm, say more… #adjunctchat 7/22/2014 16:58

@JeffreyKeefer Sorry for the delay . . . but we are now ready! #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:10:17
@JeffreyKeefer Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 6/24/2014 16:10:29
@JeffreyKeefer Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is a discussion around various Considerations for a Global #AdjunctChat Day http://t.co/0wmfRDFjUg 6/24/2014 16:11:09
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @Oplerno @lmockford @katrinafee @whowewilltobe I am moderating #AdjunctChat today; later meeting than expected. 6/24/2014 16:11:48
@JeffreyKeefer Let’s do a check-in; who is here for #AdjunctChat? 6/24/2014 16:12:09
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I think this is a great idea. #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:12:30
@JeffreyKeefer Today’s #AdjunctChat is a continuation of what first arose on May 20 http://t.co/KYLOTwvOVo 6/24/2014 16:13:34
@frankblues @JeffreyKeefer I’m around… #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:13:40
@LitProfSuz Good afternoon! I haven’t been able to attend an #adjunctchat lately. Good to see you! 6/24/2014 16:13:47
@JeffreyKeefer Those who moderated #AdjunctChat on May 20 @KateMfD @unicasual @Acahacker @UCUAnti_Cas @CAPAWca @JeffreyKeefer have discussed more options. 6/24/2014 16:15:01
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 6/24/2014 16:15:21
@JeffreyKeefer @frankblues Welcome to #AdjunctChat! 6/24/2014 16:15:25
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Welcome to #AdjunctChat! Great to see you again, too!! 6/24/2014 16:15:38
@JeffreyKeefer When we had our first global #AdjunctChat, lots of new ideas and networks started, and we thought we may want to expand on this a bit. 6/24/2014 16:16:10
@JeffreyKeefer . . . and this #AdjunctChat today just came together as an opportunity to publicly share and consider some of the ideas we have floated. 6/24/2014 16:17:15
@JeffreyKeefer Q1: What are your thoughts about trying a day-long #AdjunctChat? 6/24/2014 16:17:20
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I just jump in here. I think a 24 hr (day of adjunct) is a great idea but will take some organization. #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:17:24
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer #acwri does a month of activities 24 hours a day for a month. they have people sign up to moderate at all times #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:18:25
@frankblues @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat What’s the goal? Awareness? Participation? Connection? 6/24/2014 16:18:30
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 A1 Yes, some organizing, which is something that we wanted to begin to see if there is interest in #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:18:42
@AdjunctChat RT @JeffreyKeefer: Q1: What are your thoughts about trying a day-long #AdjunctChat? 6/24/2014 16:19:00
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer So we would just need to get enough people to sign up to moderate for 24 hours. #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:19:39
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 So #acwri does it for 24 hours OR for a solid month (once a year)? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:19:46
@Comprof1 RT @frankblues: @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat What’s the goal? Awareness? Participation? Connection? 6/24/2014 16:19:51
@JeffreyKeefer RT @frankblues: @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat What’s the goal? Awareness? Participation? Connection? 6/24/2014 16:19:54
@JeffreyKeefer @frankblues I think the goals are all of the above #AdjunctChat A1 6/24/2014 16:20:09
@Comprof1 @frankblues @JeffreyKeefer Related, should we have topics for people to volunteer moderation or have moderators propose topics? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:20:42
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Does it need to be fully moderated for all 24 hours? #AdjunctChat A1 6/24/2014 16:20:48
@AdjunctChat Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is a discussion around various Considerations for a Global #AdjunctChat Day http://t.co/UzhaCEJOq9 6/24/2014 16:21:26
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer They have 24 hour coverage for 30 days. I’m not suggesting that. But they do have moderators 24/7 #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:21:42
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @frankblues Great question! We were thinking the same topic so to see how it moves or is experienced around the world #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:22:49
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 For me personally, the exciting thing @ a twitter chat is the instant replies-more conversational. #adjunctchat 6/24/2014 16:22:54
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I think so if we are going to be truly global. #AdjunctChat We could have duplicate topics w/ diff moderators #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:23:10
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @frankblues However, perhaps sign up moderators and ask them to propose different topics? A1 #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:23:35
@frankblues @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat Could there be moderation by timezone? Rotate by question? 6/24/2014 16:23:53
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Think we could have enough constant participation to still make it a chat, & not just a hashtag? #adjunctchat 6/24/2014 16:24:51
@JeffreyKeefer @frankblues @Comprof1 We have a group in the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK. I am not sure if elsewhere #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:25:13

@melovell RT @AdjunctChat: Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is a discussion around various Considerations for a Global #AdjunctChat Day http://t.co/UzhaCEJ… 6/24/2014 16:25:26
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Now that may be one of the questions of the day! #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:25:44
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @frankblues Or if you wanted discussion of same topics could have 4 or 6 topics replicated with different mods.#adjunctchat 6/24/2014 16:25:57
@AdjunctChat Q1: What are your thoughts about trying a day-long #AdjunctChat? 6/24/2014 16:26:25
@JeffreyKeefer Q2: What would be some of the benefits of this form of #AdjunctChat? 6/24/2014 16:27:09
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @frankblues Yay, maybe rotate 4 topics thru the day for global perspective? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:27:21
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Hmmm…maybe start with a 12 hour window? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:28:26
@ProfessorF74 RT @JeffreyKeefer: Q1: What are your thoughts about trying a day-long #AdjunctChat? 6/24/2014 16:28:58
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 Tell more about what you are thinking? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:31:40
@JeffreyKeefer A2 I think some of the benefits of this will be to network, share resources, and expand our horizons #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:32:22
@JeffreyKeefer A2 I also think that what is happening with HE in the USA is affecting how everybody else practices HE cost-cutting #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:32:48
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Well, rather than 24 hrs, try 12 hrs. Maybe less trickling of participation? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:33:13
@JeffreyKeefer A2 Talking together about how we all handle things or can support one another can be beneficial for a global sense of “us” #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:33:41
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer We could have 5 different chats on the 4 topics at a given local time i.e. 4pm Gmt, Edt, etc…#AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:33:57
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Hmm.. 4 pm at every time zone. Have a moderator per time zone. Same topic would provide continuity #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:36:06
@JeffreyKeefer Q3: What are some of the hurdles we may need to address? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:36:45
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Wondering if we should poll people to find out interest, topic, time? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:36:49
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer We need lead time to publicize, but not too long so people forget. #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:37:45
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I think that is a great idea! #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:38:58
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer We need about a week of intense publicity the week before by twitter volunteers. #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:39:38
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 We were actually considering August 5 for this . . . #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:39:41
@JeffreyKeefer You do know I may be reaching out to you all to help with this, right?! 🙂 #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:40:03

@frankblues @JeffreyKeefer I need to go get ready for class. Will catch up later! Thanks all! #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:41:28
@JeffreyKeefer What can we use to poll people or eventually ask people to sign up for? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:41:56
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Definately, but not if it is August 5. I find internationally october is a better month. #AdjunctChat Esp end of Oct. 6/24/2014 16:42:10

@AdjunctChat Q4: What are some potential topics with a global reach? #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:48:50
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer It might also be nice to have a blog post from each moderator on status of contingent in their country. #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:49:34
@LitProfSuz @JeffreyKeefer Might that become a little too negative (potentially)? We’d probably have many newbies-don’t want to scare them #AdjunctChat 6/24/2014 16:49:41

@JeffreyKeefer Q1 I wonder how many of us here in #AdjunctChat today even see ourselves as members of any adjunct communities? 6/10/2014 16:11:14
@polypel88 A1: twitter helps us form communities where uni fail to include our voice #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:11:16

@frankblues @polypel88 @JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe @fabianbanga @ProfessorF74 @FromPhDtoLife A1: Insert easy and universal answer here. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:12:22
@JeffreyKeefer @polypel88 A1 I wonder if communities may form regardless of what may happen in one uni or another? #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:12:23
@fabianbanga @polypel88 A1: I think SM communities r working very well. many also in facebook, and G+ #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:12:39
@polypel88 @JeffreyKeefer that’s true. Adjunct seems to be such a displaced term. Very liminal. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:12:40
@frankblues @JeffreyKeefer I feel like I participate in many communities as an adjunct, but not in communities specifically for adjuncts. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:13:20

@Comprof1 Q2 also, many adjuncts/contingents out there. Not so resentful of those I’m competing for jobs with. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:33:03
@JeffreyKeefer I sometimes think the #DivideAndConquer happens just by not have dept meetings or any structures for involvement #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:33:35
@VCVaile @frankblues then create new ones of your own…virtual for the campus maybe…http://t.co/IVTpAyBpe1 #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:33:55
@Comprof1 @polypel88 We have that (2 courses per semester). #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:34:09
@frankblues @polypel88 Utah: limited to 74% of FTE per semester (11 cr hours Fall or Spring, 9 during summer). #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:34:12
@JeffreyKeefer Q3: How do these shift / expand / decline over the summer? #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:34:17
@polypel88 @voicethread I do not but @mgbaker22 do three different ones last fall and 7days per week. #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:34:28
@JeffreyKeefer A3 I find I still work FT and teach ongoing during the summer, so no real changes for me #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:34:56

@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer Thinking as a chair, learned that exploitation = weaken our performances as departments. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:35:56
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Also, not having transparency in hiring/termination results in #divideandconquer. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:35:57
@polypel88 Chatting works better on the laptop rather than the phone. Typos galore #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:36:28
@VCVaile my local support support network may b3 unraveling so reset for survival will probably be my summer gig #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:36:49
@frankblues @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat No classes in May, so more reading / online activity. Summer classes seem easier to teach, so more time to think 6/10/2014 16:37:11
@fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile We have to put the topic out there for discussion on our campuses #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:37:29
@Comprof1 @frankblues @polypel88 One school I worked at limited # of terms to 8 b/c ANY faculty could then apply for tenure even nonTT #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:37:53
@VCVaile @Comprof1 then how do you make/bring about transparency? that lack not #divideandconquer is the real task/issue #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:38:21
@Comprof1 @frankblues @JeffreyKeefer Me too. Summer courses don’t start until June. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:38:44
@Comprof1 @VCVaile Easier with Union. But I think there needs to be more transparency even w/ union w/ adjunct bill of rights. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:39:54
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @frankblues I am already in week 3 of the first summer session! #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:40:13
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @frankblues I am already in week 3 of the first summer session! #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:40:13
@frankblues @VCVaile @Comprof1 No guarantee of continuity for employ is an obstacle. We are “at-will” hired. No reason needed not to renew. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:40:25
@JeffreyKeefer @frankblues Goodness, now you want time to think?!?! #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:41:08
@frankblues @Comprof1 @VCVaile I’m in a state with long history of union-busting. So are many. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:41:18
@Comprof1 @VCVaile We need to get rid of “at will” employment & change to “for reason” (declining enrollment, change in curriculum) #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:41:24
@JeffreyKeefer A3 I do find summer classes are sometimes a little smaller, so more time to focus #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:41:34
@voicethread @polypel88 @mgbaker22 Wow-that’s a lot of turbulence. In my experience, all the travel+late class times= disconnected feeling. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:41:46
@JeffreyKeefer A3 The irony is that the smaller a class I teach, the more I say and the more we discuss, and thus class takes longer! #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:42:02
@frankblues @JeffreyKeefer And time to read student work. And interact with students outside of class time. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:42:12
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @frankblues I’m teaching an intensive online course (4 weeks). #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:42:25
@JeffreyKeefer Feel free to continue considering Q1 Q2 Q3 http://t.co/df6UcdOzi8 #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:42:51
@polypel88 @Comprof1 @frankblues that is one of the reasons they limit it here. No possibility for tenure #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:42:53
@voicethread @frankblues I’d assume you like the relative stability now, right? #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:42:58
@JeffreyKeefer However, for our final question to consider for discussion . . . #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:43:12
@JeffreyKeefer Q4: What will you take with you into the new year? #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:43:16
@frankblues @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat I’m sorry. I once did a 3-week intensive face-to-face in May (that I got paid for in June) 6/10/2014 16:43:37
@AdjunctChat RT @JeffreyKeefer: Q4: What will you take with you into the new year? #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:43:58
@frankblues @voicethread #AdjunctChat “Relative” is a good way to put it. There is always this fear in pit of stomach before actually assigned classes. 6/10/2014 16:44:57
@Comprof1 @frankblues @JeffreyKeefer I’ve done face to face intensive many times before (don’t mind it) first time for online. #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:46:05
@VCVaile @Comprof1 that requires changing labor codes state by state #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:46:17

@JeffreyKeefer A4 For the new year, I hope to focus on some professional goals, along with more publication focus #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:47:35

@Comprof1 @VCVaile What if it were federal? I know, it’s more practical at state level. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:47:58
@frankblues #AdjunctChat A4: I want to take a bigger sense of activism. More blogging, more tweeting, more speaking, more community building. 6/10/2014 16:48:53
@JeffreyKeefer Any other goals for the summer and into the new uni year? #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:48:59
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer In what areas? Will you have time for that? #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:49:08
@VCVaile @Comprof1 that is not how labor law works…changes at federal are also very, very difficult #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:49:26

@JeffreyKeefer @frankblues Sounds great; activism toward what? #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:49:38
@JeffreyKeefer @frankblues I agree with you that community building is quite valuable #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:50:00
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Is your fulltime job supportive of publishing/professional development? #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:50:03
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Alas, I never seem to have time, you are right #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:50:38
@polypel88 A4: I would like to focus on professional development and publications in the new year. Maybe approach a new journal this time #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:51:05
@frankblues @JeffreyKeefer Our discussion is part of a bigger problem of how education is commodified in this country, from K to College. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:51:16
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 However, with some shifts at work and such, I do not have well-articulated professional goals right now 😦 #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:51:23

@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Supportive in that they encourage, not so much with financially supporting them #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:52:10
@VCVaile A4 new year plans depend on changes in personal support system…major changes likely there… #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:52:11
@Comprof1 Got to go. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:52:23
@frankblues #AdjunctChat A4: Also, and this is hard for me, giving up any dream of FT/TT teaching in the near future. 6/10/2014 16:52:46
@Coach_Reliable RT @polypel88: Chatting works better on the laptop rather than the phone. Typos galore #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:53:32
@JeffreyKeefer @frankblues I used to think about FT TT, though with its challenges and limits, I am not sure it is really a dream any longer #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:54:25
@frankblues @JeffreyKeefer Better working conditions for adjuncts. Feeling valued and appreciated by the institution itself. Better pay. #AdjunctChat 6/10/2014 16:54:31
@VCVaile but (A4) I have plans to streamline online networks…integrate varied education & local ones #adjunctchat 6/10/2014 16:54:33

#AdjunctChat Topic June 24 ~ Considerations for a Global #AdjunctChat Day (with @jeffreykeefer)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, June 24 at 4:00pm EDT is:

Considerations for a Global #AdjunctChat Day

Some of you may recall a recent #AdjunctChat we had the explored the experiences of adjunct, part-time, contingent, precarious, faculty in higher education –
Global Experiences of Adjunct Faculty in Higher Education. A number of us who chatted that day have remained in touch and shared ideas for expanding this.

How about a day-long #AdjunctChat, making it easier for people in various timezones to participate?

Seems a good idea, though like many things worth doing it requires lots of discussion for shared terms, scheduling, logistics, topics, and the like.

With this as the backdrop, let’s spend today’s time together discussing some issues that may be related to a different style of #AdjunctChat. Here are a few potential starters that our facilitator @jeffreykeefer will use:

Q1: What are your thoughts about trying a day-long #AdjunctChat?

Q2: What would be some of the benefits of this form of #AdjunctChat?

Q3: What are some of the hurdles we may need to address? #AdjunctChat

Q4: What are some potential topics with a global reach? #AdjunctChat

Q5: What tag(s) can we use that may be global in scope? #AdjunctChat

All adjunct, contingent, part-time, visiting, and non-tenure track instructors, along with their allies, in higher education are welcome to #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, June 24, 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.

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