The Adjunct Professor’s Complete Guide to Teaching College provides an illuminating look into collegiate instruction, how to actively engage students and the proven techniques that enhance learning. This book is for everyone who has ever wanted to teach a college course, but were unsure of where and how to start. For many, the thought of teaching one or two courses in their area of specialty is most appealing. Not only does it offer an opportunity to share some basic information about a specific occupational field; so too, does it provide a chance to stay up-to-date on current trends in business, psychology, education, computer science or whatever one’s field may be. It’s also a nice way to supplement one’s income and work with a new generation of students. But, for some adjunct instructors, often hired just before a semester begins and usually without any pedagogical training, there’s a constant question that always surfaces: What do I need to know in order to teach college students successfully?
The Adjunct Professor’s Complete Guide to Teaching College is an all-in-one sourcebook of practical ideas and solutions, will provide proven strategies for both novice and experienced instructors. I will offer specific tools and techniques that enhance the learning process. A creative range of “inside information” will be offered for adjunct professors to apply in their own unique teaching situations. The Adjunct Professor’s Complete Guide offers a wealth of dynamic and useful techniques leading to instructional success.
