New Part-Time Faculty Orientation

The goal of the New Part-Time Faculty Orientation is to increase instructional effectiveness, improve instructor confidence, enhance student satisfaction, and promote academic achievement within a learner-centered college classroom.
This two-part orientation introduces new part-time faculty to the college and provides an overview of faculty support services and instructional techniques. Additionally, the Orientation is enhanced by a series of supplemental workshops designed to more fully explore the ideas, strategies, and resources experienced in the Orientation. Attendees receive a $50 stipend for attending each session (not including lunch).

The AM session includes a continental breakfast, a tour of campus, and information about various CLC resources. The PM session includes the text, Teaching Strategies and Techniques for Adjunct Faculty, 4 th Ed. by Donald Greive (2002), as well as sessions on various classroom teaching and preparation strategies. There is also a complimentary lunch, which provides a wonderful opportunity for new part-time faculty to mingle with peers from various disciplines. All three sessions must be registered for separately.

The orientation takes place on a Saturday, a few weeks prior to the start of class, both in the fall and spring semesters. It is facilitated by Dr. Page Wolf, Coordinator of Faculty Development in the Professional Development Center. For further information, contact Page at 847-543-2446 or .
