Design orientation and professional development to help online adjuncts succeed
Educational outcomes of online and face-to-face courses may be similar, but teaching in these environments is very different, especially for adjuncts.
Despite their professional expertise, adjunct online faculty might not have much experience with academia in general and may never have set foot on your campus. They might not be familiar with your reporting systems, know who to call when there’s a glitch, or even be working during standard office hours.
It’s time to start giving remote faculty support and professional development opportunities tailored to meet their circumstances. The Working with Adjunct Faculty 2 Pack with Jean Mandernach, PhD, will show you a comprehensive approach to orientation for online adjuncts, as well as the key components of effective professional development for online faculty.
The programs included in this 2-pack are:
- What Do Adjunct Faculty Need to Be Successful in the Online Classroom?
This program will help you understand what online adjuncts need to know about your institution, your administrative procedures, pedagogical expectations, and opportunities for growth within your school.
- How Can I Engage Online Adjunct Faculty in Professional Development?
This presentation focuses on the three key components of successful professional development programs for online adjunct faculty: content, timing, and motivation.
Individually, these programs sell for $99 each. By purchasing the 2-pack, you will save nearly $50.
Online adjunct faculty are too important to higher education to ignore. Make sure your faculty have what they need to succeed and improve as educators. Order the Working with Adjunct Faculty 2 Pack today!

Online adjunct faculty work in one of the most fast-paced, changeable environments in academia today, and they teach some of the most diverse students enrolled in higher education.

They need help to do their best. Find out how to support your adjunct faculty—and provide students with real educational value—with the Working with Adjunct Faculty 2 Pack.
