Adjunct faculty make-up more than 50% of the teaching force in American higher education. Therefore, it is essential that faculty developers think about and create programming for this population. Using the Delphi Project model, facilitators from the Adjunct/Part-Time Faculty SIG will walk participants through their understanding of adjunct faculty needs, sharing that understanding with stakeholders, and offering strategies in response. The workshop will provide opportunities for participant collaboration to develop an action plan for their institution. Participants will explore programming options to help integrate their adjunct faculty into a culture of teaching using workshops, learning communities, etc.

Audience: Adjunct & Part-time Faculty; Administrators (Assoc. Deans, Deans, Vice Provosts, Assoc. VPs); POD Network Members
