  4. 4. Rebecca J. Hogue @rjhogue | Jeffrey M. Keefer @JeffreyKeefer Adjunct? Contingent? Part-Time? Contract? Lecturer? Visiting? What terms do you hear or use for those who teach in higher education on a per- course or non-permanent basis?
  5. 5. Adjunct, part-time, contingent, temporary, casual, visiting, or non-permanent instructors across higher education in the U.S. account for 76% of all university teaching (American Association of University Professors, n.d.). cc: MTSOfan - https://www.flickr.com/photos/8628862@N05
  6. 6. Rebecca J. Hogue @rjhogue | Jeffrey M. Keefer @JeffreyKeefer Contract Examples The Good (real example) • $6000+ for 13-week course • Instructor autonomy • 48/hr response (business days only) The Bad (real example) • $98/student no minimum, 8-week course • 24/hr student response (7-days/week) • Min two sync sessions • Mark all assignments with 5 business days
  7. 7. Rebecca J. Hogue @rjhogue | Jeffrey M. Keefer @JeffreyKeefer Questionable practices • No advanced warning – contracts are issued less than a week before classes begin • Classes/contracts are cancelled without warning • Education doctorates that require unpaid (or worse where the student pays) to be a TA or instructor for a course
  8. 8. Rebecca J. Hogue @rjhogue | Jeffrey M. Keefer @JeffreyKeefer Narratives Considerations • Is adjuncting a career, a path, or something else? • Is flexible academic work exploitive or empowering? • What effect does adjuncting have on disciplines, theory, practice, and research? • How does organized labor / unions manage knowledge workers? • How do contracts, appointments, advancement, access, and equity work for part-time instructors?
  9. 9. Rebecca J. Hogue @rjhogue | Jeffrey M. Keefer @JeffreyKeefer Narratives Considerations • What does power and privilege mean when considering contract academics? • Is adjunct online teaching freeing, exploitive, or something else? • Who really cares about research if tenure is not a possibility? • Is there a narrative at all or are the voices too diverse? What other questions need to be asked?
