The Adjunct Faculty Handbook, Second Edition provides a full range of academic leaders and adjunct faulty with a much-needed, practical resource to manage the work of adjunct faculty teaching. Since the publication of the first edition in 1996, the number of adjunct faculty members in colleges and universities has increased spectacularly, to the point that most colleges and universities could not function efficiently without them. The revised edition has been updated to address the dramatic changes in higher education that result from institutional dependence on adjunct faculty as well as the striking changes in higher education (such as the role of technology in teaching and learning, the increased emphasis on student evaluations and learning outcomes assessment, and changes in classroom dynamics) in which adjunct faculty must be proficient.
