@slicksean @asmb90 burnout management for adjuncts generally, I think. how to get more adjuncts involved when they’re working so much? #adjunctchat 7/22/2014 16:48
@fabianbanga @slicksean The travelling and $ issue is universal. Segregation in #highered , since TT etc. have a budget / #adjuncts do not. #AdjunctChat 7/22/2014 16:48
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile @slicksean Now THAT is alignment! #AdjunctChat #altCOCAL 7/22/2014 16:49

@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 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

@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

@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

@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @npmaven Good point here about differentiation across social media accounts/platforms. Multiple options. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:26

@adjunctforlife Linkedin is a useless tool…it wasn’t helpful before the economy crashed and it sure isn’t going to be helpful now. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:27
@Melissa_Venable Q3) via @JeffreyKeefer What processes do you use to identify useful groups? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:27
@npmaven @JeffreyKeefer Trial & error. I start w/groups where I’m a member elsewhere. Some have been invites, some exploring. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:27
@Melissa_Venable @adjunctforlife Hello there! Would like to hear more about your LinkedIn experience. There are limitations. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:28
@npmaven Struggling with that contribution piece, to be honest. The time issue. Or I’m stuck in ‘learner’ mode. So I ask questions. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:29
@MirandaMerklein @Melissa_Venable Yes, I’m definitely looking for something that provides an actual income. 6/7 courses per semester is hell. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:29
@Melissa_Venable Some of the most interesting groups (to me) are related to schools (alumni) and professional orgs. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @adjunctforlife Welcome t #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @npmaven It is easy to get stretched too thin . . . #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:30
@JeffreyKeefer RT @npmaven: @Melissa_Venable So important. Like community anywhere: can’t always taketaketake. Must be part of the convo. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:30
@Melissa_Venable @MirandaMerklein Wow – agreed. There seem to be a lot of LinkedIn discussions related to adjunct and academic employment … #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:30
@MirandaMerklein @npmaven I think that’s what I don’t get. My history is journalism, publishing, and adjuncting. Not sure where to fit in alt-ac #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:30
@adjunctforlife Nothing will make the job search better if there are no jobs. You can learn acrobatics & walk on fire & it still won’t help #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:31
@Melissa_Venable @MirandaMerklein …but not sure what the stats are on how many lead to placement, contracts. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @npmaven Can you talk more about what you have in mind? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Do you find they have substantive conversations? If so, what makes them that way? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:32
@npmaven @MirandaMerklein Have to test the waters. I engage w/peers in different interest areas. Connecting, learning, networking. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @adjunctforlife How have you tried to leverage LinkedIn? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:32
@MirandaMerklein @Melissa_Venable I think there are lots who don’t know where to go. Even entry level positions are competitive and specialized #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:32
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Yes – good for sharing experiences- answering Qs about transition from school to work for example. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:33
@JHulehan LinkedIn is about networking. You have to make it work for you. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:33
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Prof org Groups can be helpful to extend networking before and after a conference. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:33
@npmaven Yes. Different for each of us. RT @JHulehan LinkedIn is about networking. You have to make it work for you. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:34
@Melissa_Venable @adjunctforlife Well, I can’t argue that. Numbers of available positions does make a difference. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:34
@npmaven RT @Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Prof org Groups can be helpful to extend networking before, after conference. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:34
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Hi Jennifer! Agreed. 🙂 It’s a tool that could be used in multiple ways. Each user can decide priorities,participate. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:35
@npmaven Yes, some of my pro groups use LinkedIn primarily for networking. They’re more successful than where LI is only 1 tool used. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:35
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @MirandaMerklein Perhaps this is something to look at; I have not searched for adjunct specs on LI #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:36
@npmaven LinkedIn not as full-featured as others. Groups w/presence elsewhere may find LI not their best forum for what they want to do. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer RT @JHulehan: LinkedIn is about networking. You have to make it work for you. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:36
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @MirandaMerklein Any thoughts on adjunct positions and referrals? Networking can help make the connections. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @JHulehan Welcome to #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @JHulehan Have you found success using LinkedIn? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:37
@JHulehan Some ways people use LinkedIn: expanding their network, relationship management, getting introduced to…, #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I thought your post for this week’s #AdjunctChat was quite useful http://t.co/z1E0CNnHTa 5/27/14 16:37
@Melissa_Venable @npmaven Well said. Value of LinkedIn (and other networks) varies by industry, community, etc. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:39
@JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer Absolutely! I’ve made great connections, and I’ve also gotten freelance work via LinkedIn. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:39
@Melissa_Venable RT @JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer Absolutely! I’ve made great connections, and I’ve also gotten freelance work via LinkedIn. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:39
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer Thanks, Jeffrey 🙂 I think LinkedIn is worth exploring, trying before making a decision to use/not use. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:40
@JHulehan Other ways to use LinkedIn: Promote your career, Group collaboration, Share presentations, Discussions, Build personal brand. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:40

@JHulehan LI summary statement is like your personal mission statement or the first few paragraphs of your best-written cover letter. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:41
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Yes! You can take an entrepreneurial approach -get the word out about your work, services. Build authority. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:41
@npmaven RT @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Yes! take an entrepreneurial approach -get word out about your work, services. Build authority #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I have heard people be very successful with LI, though have not figured how to contribute / leverage with it #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:42
@adjunctforlife How 2 get a job: 1) Have 20 mediocre publications 2) Have the right connections 3) B wealthy, privileged & the right ethnicity #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable I am very open to exploring it more #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:43
@JHulehan RT @JeffreyKeefer: @Melissa_Venable I thought your post for this week’s #AdjunctChat was quite useful http://t.co/z1E0CNnHTa 5/27/14 16:43
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer I think either extreme can be helpful from minimal: complete and updated profile (comes up in LI and Google)… #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:44
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer to maximum: participating daily in Group discussions, liking/sharing others’ updates, expanding connections. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:45
@JHulehan One key to leveraging LI: joining groups! And then participating in them! #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:45
@Melissa_Venable Q4) What are your recommendations – where should an adjunct new to LinkedIn get started? Best use of time and tools. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:46
@Melissa_Venable RT @JHulehan One key to leveraging LI: joining groups! And then participating in them! #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:48
@JHulehan A4) Join groups like Inside Higher Ed. Start discussions. Comment on others’ discussions. Send invitations to connect. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:49
@npmaven RT @JHulehan A4) Join groups like Inside Higher Ed. Start discussions. Comment on others’ discussions. Send invites to connect. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:50
@JHulehan A4) Start with a professional photo. Then an informative headline: Your headline is a short, memorable professional slogan. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:50
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Great #LinkedIn tips, Jennifer. And a good reminder to identify groups, influencers, etc. in #highered! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:50
@fabianbanga hi #adjunctchat sorry i am too late, but I am here. 5/27/14 16:51
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Well played! We are now connected on LinkedIn 🙂 Thanks for reaching out. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:52
@Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga Hi! Glad you could make it. 🙂 Any suggestions for those new to LinkedIn? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:52
@JHulehan Update your #LinkedIn status regularly. Posting updates helps you stay on network’s radar and build professional image. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:54
@Melissa_Venable LinkedIn, like Facebook and the others, changes. Stay current on new features, setting options, etc. http://t.co/40ELU2hN3M #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:55
@fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable I do not know, I am using LinkedIn for some years; more like a space for professional interaction and CV share #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:55
@JHulehan Posting in the National Assoc. of Developmental Education group on #LinkedIn helped me in building my brand. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:55
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Great idea; perhaps we should connect on LI! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:56
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan How frequently do you recommend updates? (I usually do this 1-2 per week, but …) #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:56
@Melissa_Venable MT @fabianbanga …I am using LinkedIn for some years; more like a space for professional interaction and CV share #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:56
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Odd, but I often do not think about asking people to connect; that is what I like about Twitter! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:56
@fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable found some people when looking for instructors + connections in the area of #edtech / #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:56
@Melissa_Venable Yes! Send those invitations. 🙂 RT @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan Great idea; perhaps we should connect on LI! #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:57
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable What strategies did you use? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:58
@JHulehan @Melissa_Venable I think 1-2 per week is good. Sometimes I do more if I’m working on a project (i.e. post presentation I gave) #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:58
@JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @JHulehan What sorts of updates do you add? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:58
@Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga Interesting – you found instructors to hire? #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 16:59
@JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Asking for connections is good! As long as you send more than generic “want to add you add” msg #adjunctchat 5/27/14 16:59
@JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable If I go to a conference–or hear something great at a conference, I might update with that. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:00
@Melissa_Venable @JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer Agreed – it’s a good way to get a conversation going. Stronger connection than “following” #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 17:00
@fabianbanga @Melissa_Venable wondering about the similarities with http://t.co/tcNrxNclzl #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:00
@JHulehan @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable Mention projects, professional books or articles, or events I’m attending. #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:00
@Melissa_Venable @JeffreyKeefer @JHulehan I share articles I’ve written, projects I’m working on. Mostly promotion. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 17:00
@JHulehan If you’re active in a group, you may become a “Top Contributor,” which really gets your name out there! #adjunctchat 5/27/14 17:01
@Melissa_Venable @fabianbanga I think there are more academic-centric communities than LinkedIn, may be better interaction for some. #AdjunctChat 5/27/14 17:01

@JeffreyKeefer With so many of us here on #AdjunctChat on LinkedIn, perhaps we should explore having our own group discussions there! 5/27/14 17:02

#AdjunctChat Topic May 27 ~ LinkedIn for Adjuncts (with @melissa_venable)

Twitter_ChatThe topic for the #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, May 27 at 4:00pm EDT is:

LinkedIn for Adjuncts

The chat will be facilitated b Melissa Venable @melissa_venable.

A post with background information and several links of ideas and suggestions may be found at LinkedIn Strategies for Adjunct Faculty.

Many adjunct and part-time higher education instructors often lament that they work and feel alone, so let’s spend some time exploring the art of professional networking and connecting with one another via LinkedIn.

All adjunct, contingent, part-time, visiting, and non-tenure track instructors, along with their allies, in higher education are welcome to #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, May 27, from 4:00-5:00pm EDT. Even if you do not readily fit into the above, #AdjunctChat is open to all!

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