Meloncon, Lisa; England, Peter; Ilyasova, Alex
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v46 n2 p206-235 Apr 2016
We report the results of a pilot study that offers the field of technical and professional communication its first look at material working conditions of contingent faculty, such as course loads, compensation, and professional support. Findings include that contingent faculty are more enduring with stable full-time, multi-year contracts; they carry a substantial teaching loads; and the majority are satisfied and happy in their present position, but half would prefer to be working on the tenure track.
