Supervision of Part-Time Faculty [microform] : A Model for Community Colleges / Virginia M. Carson

Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1988 
17 p. 
Summary

Although 57% of community and junior college faculty are employed on a part-time basis, the supervision of adjunct faculty has received little attention in the literature. Reports on part-time faculty have generally dealt with their personal and professional characteristics, their job responsibilities and relationship to the college, and their effectiveness as instructors. The literature is replete with information and recommendations concerning in-service education for part-time faculty, but lacking in guidelines for faculty supervision. Based on the literature that does exist, it would seem that institutions should identify a supervisory position to coordinate instruction provided by part-time faculty, including responsibilities for recruitment, hiring, scheduling, orientation, counseling, in-service education, and evaluation. The evaluations of part-time faculty should include both student evaluations, classroom observations, and post-observation conferences. Since community colleges are likely to have significant numbers of part-time faculty for the next decade, research on the impact of part-timers on the student learning environment is in order. (EJV)
