On October 23, 2014, I’ll be teaching a workshop on “How to Become an Adjunct Professor” at 1776 DC, a startup incubator in Washington DC. This interactive workshop is intended to assist young or mid-career professionals interested in obtaining a position as adjunct faculty in their field of choice. Becoming an adjunct is an excellent starting point for anyone interested in a career in higher education. Even if such a career is not your calling, becoming an adjunct is a great way to explore and develop an interest in teaching and to stay up-to-date in your chosen field. As adjunct faculty, you can put your work experience to good use, while not having to commit to the strenuous schedule of full-time faculty.
This workshop is uniquely tailored to each attendee’s specific professional needs. Each attendee will leave the workshop with an understanding of the roles, responsibilities, and expectations of adjunct faculty. Furthermore, each participant will receive individualized assistance in writing the perfect invitation letter and improving their CV’s. By the end of the workshop, the goal is to empower and excite participants about teaching, and instill in them the confidence to make headway in obtaining an adjunct faculty position in the subject area and university of their choice.
