Effective Use of Adjunct Professors in Educational Leadership.
Edmonson, Stacey; Fisher, Alice
The limited resources of most colleges and universities and the efforts of most higher education programs, including those in educational leadership, to comply with state and national standards mean that adjunct professors play a vital role in the success of an educational leadership program. This paper offers suggestions for maintaining the quality and success of adjunct professors in an educational leadership program. Tips for success are: (1) match courses taught by adjunct faculty with their areas of expertise; (2) provide services for adjuncts throughout the semester; (3) take care of the "little things"; (4) treat adjuncts as colleagues and not as subordinates; (5) encourage and support the work of adjuncts; and (6) communicate expectations of learner outcomes. (Contains 3 figures and 10 references.) (Author/SLD)
