Contingent Commitments: Bringing Part-Time Faculty into Focus. Methodology Supplement
Center for Community College Student Engagement
Center reporting prior to 2013 focused primarily on descriptive statistics (frequencies and means) of student and faculty behaviors. The goal of the analyses reported here and in "Contingent Commitments: Bringing Part-Time Faculty into Focus" is to understand the engagement of part-time or contingent faculty in various activities that are directly related to student learning (e.g., holding office hours, participation in high-impact practices such as learning communities, student success courses, accelerated developmental education, etc.) as well as opportunities to be involved in non-instructional roles (e.g., review and/or development of curricula, service, institutional governance, and participation in professional development). This paper also examines these roles in comparison to full-time faculty to understand where there are differences in opportunities for part-time faculty. [For the full report, see ED561121.]
