College Invites Adjuncts to Faculty Day

By Madison Bara, Section Editor

The Council for Adjunct Faculty Development is hosting an Adjunct Faculty Development Day in West Hall, Parkview Room on March 7 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. to teach adjunct professors new strategies and ideas that will help them in the classroom. 

Caroline Marchitto, chair of the Council for Adjunct Faculty Development, said, “It will be an interactive session which will allow adjuncts to share effective teaching techniques with each other.” 

According to the flyer, topics that will be discussed include “What is your favorite assignment to support student learning?”, “With what aspects of the class do you struggle with?” and best practices to take back to the classroom. 

Marchitto said, “Adjunct Faculty Development Day is followed by two breakout sessions, which include Canvas and Active Learning Strategies, among others.” 

According to the flyer, adjuncts are recommended to sign up for two more sessions, in addition to the main session, when they register on Eventbrite at http://www.mccdevday2020.eventbrite.com. 

According to the flyer, adjuncts employed by public schools can request a certificate of attendance and receive professional credits, but they need to complete the continuing credit sign-in sheet on the day of the event to prove they earned the credits. 

Marchitto said she hopes adjuncts will attend because they will learn important teaching techniques that will help them in the classroom and hopefully make a few new friends. 

“The council is excited about this year’s program,” said Marchitto.
