Adjunct Faculty as Key Stakeholders in Distance Education
Ridge, Alison; Ritt, Elizabeth
Journal of Faculty Development, v31 n2 p57-62 May 2017
Institutions of higher learning are expanding their academic reach by offering distance education courses and degree programs. Student demand for distance education continues to grow and so does the need for qualified faculty. The literature presents numerous approaches and best practices regarding new faculty orientation and professional development. Yet, a gap exists regarding the professional development and engagement of adjunct faculty who may be geographically isolated from institutional support and teach in distance education programs. An online orientation and engagement program (OEP) was developed and implemented with the goal of promoting the role of key stakeholder among adjunct faculty in an online graduate nursing degree program.
