The Adjunct Professors Guide to Success: Surviving and Thriving in the College Classroom

In recent years, colleges and universities have markedly increased their employment of adjunct professors. Unfortunately, many adjunct professors enter the classroom with little training in teaching and classroom management techniques and suffer frustrations which are painful to both themselves and their institution. The Adjunct Professor's Guide to Success begins by providing guidance in pursuit of an initial teaching assignment. It then addresses the issues that will be faced - becoming oriented to the institution, planning the course, conducting an effective first class meeting, etc. The book concludes with chapters on self-evaluation and techniques for building a part-time career in academe.
