Faculty Development Manual for Adjunct Staff in Postsecondary Occupational Programs.
Winter, Gene M.; And Others
Compiled as a resource guide for faculty development programs, this manual presents a collection of ideas, materials, and resources designed to increase the effectiveness of adjunct staff members in postsecondary occupational education. After a statement of the manual's purpose, the next section provides a perspective on disadvantages facing adjunct faculty, barriers to programs for part-time faculty, the context of inservice assistance, and a model to assist in program development. Outlines for seven inservice programs/activities are presented next, detailing objectives, materials, schedules, and comments regarding effectiveness. Suggestions for non-program inservice activities follow, including the buddy system, department integration, adjunct faculty organizations, and newsletters. The bulk of the manual contains resource papers, which can be used as starting points in various development and evaluation activities. These papers consider: (1) students with handicapping conditions; (2) women in two-year college career programs; (3) teaching classes of individuals; (4) instruction by lecturing; (5) the examination process; and (6) evaluation of college teaching. A 69-item bibliography is included. (LL)
