We hold orientation sessions for adjunct faculty once per semester, covering rosters, legal matters, syllabi, as well as how to hold effective and interesting lectures, increase student engagement, and build courses that are balanced and aligned between goals, objectives, assignments, and teaching practice.

List of Topics Discussed

  • Introduction to Campus Resources
  • Course Design, Goals & Objectives, Syllabi, Lesson Plans
  • Cheating, Plagiarism, and Disruptive Conduct
  • The Diverse Classroom Environment
  • Instructional Methodologies, Assessment Techniques, PowerPoint, Webcourses@UCF Grades
  • Teaching models and instructional methods

Attendance is limited to forty participants, so please register early.

We also organize a Faculty Learning Community for adjuncts each semester. The meetings are informal discussions about teaching and learning issues, and you will have the chance to meet part-time faculty from other disciplines.

In this FLC, we will focus on several effective teaching and learning strategies. The adjunct FLC will meet four times over the semester, and adjunct faculty who attend all four sessions and successfully complete the deliverables will receive a $200 grant. The deliverables will be

  1. Revise at least one lecture to embed multiple, learning activities
  2. Revise one assignment for greater transparency of expectations
  3. Revise your syllabus for greater transparency as an aid to learning

 

Adjuncts are encouraged to explore our page of resources for adjuncts.
