Characterizing Adjunct Faculty Members’ Call to Teach in Higher Education

This session will highlight findings from a phenomenological study that was designed to explore the meaning that those who feel called to teach make out of their adjunct teaching experience in higher education, including how faculty articulate the relationship between their identity, teaching intentions and professional practice.  The session will present and expand upon the essential themes that emerged as characterizing the phenomenon of feeling call to teach as an adjunct faculty member in higher education and provide attendees the opportunity to reflect on how the themes relate to their own teaching experience.
