The Motivations and Experiences of Online Adjunct Faculty Members through the Lens of Appreciative Inquiry

In this session, participants will gain a better understanding of what motivates online adjunct faculty members. In late 2016, a qualitative study was conducted on online adjunct faculty members using appreciative inquiry (AI) methodology. During this presentation, the information gathered from the research will be discussed. An in-depth discussion on how AI works and can be used across a variety of disciplines will also ensue. Anyone who would like to learn how to better motivate and understand online adjunct faculty members should attend. People interested in AI could also gain some new insight into how it was applied in this recently completed research.
