America’s #1 bestselling guide for adjunct professors, The Adjunct Professor’s Complete Guide to Teaching College.
For many 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?
This is a query asked by more than 700,000 adjunct professors in over 4,200 institutions of higher education – a number that represents approximately 75.5% of all college faculty.
The reason why so many adjunct instructors ask that question is because, not only do they lack a practical resource; so too, do they lack any formal pedagogical training on how to teach and evaluate college students. With that information they can have the confidence and training in their teaching abilities – no matter their discipline or experience. This book is unique in that it focuses on the basic and essential elements of college instruction – providing down-to-earth answers to instructors’ often unanswered questions.
The Adjunct Professor’s Complete Guide to Teaching College marketed as 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. This book is for everyone who has ever wanted to teach a college course, but were unsure of where and how to start.
