Developing a Part-Time Instructor (Adjunct) Orientation to Encourage Active, Collaborative Teaching Practices


Like many institutions, Georgia State University utilizes Part-Time Instructors (PTIs) or adjunct faculty. In Fall 2016, Georgia State offered its first Part-Time Instructor Orientation, aimed at preparing PTIs to incorporate active learning techniques. We will discuss findings on the impact of our PTI orientation, especially in the areas of active learning and assessment. The presenters will provide examples and data from the orientation and conclude by working with attendees to help them develop their own active-learning PTI orientations and/or workshops and resources.
