Using Part-Time Faculty More Effectively.
Jacobs, Frederic
New Directions for Higher Education, n104 p9-18 Win 1998
Discussion of the use of part-time faculty looks at college policies and practices influencing hiring of part-timers, problems emerging from part-time appointments, and policy and structural changes needed to increase the effectiveness of part-time faculty. It is concluded that while the problems cannot be resolved to everyone's satisfaction, institutional culture can be a vehicle for improving satisfaction and productivity. (MSE)
