Adjunct Orientation

We hold orientation sessions for adjunct faculty once per semester. Topics we cover include:

  • Introduction to campus resources
  • Course design, goals & objectives, syllabi, lesson plans
  • Cheating, plagiarism, and disruptive conduct
  • The diverse classroom environment
  • Instructional methodologies and assessment techniques
  • Technology such as PowerPoint and Webcourses@UCF Grades
  • Teaching models and instructional methods.

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

Adjunct Faculty Learning Community

We also organize a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) 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. The adjunct FLC meets four times over the semester. Adjunct faculty who attend all four sessions and successfully complete the deliverables will receive a $200 grant. The deliverables are:

  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.
