Praise for the First Edition

"The book is very comprehensive. It gives plenty of practical examples and also refers to teaching and learning theory."—Martin Lightfoot in Management & Education

"This Handbook contains advice and approaches for teaching practices that both new and seasoned faculty can employ to revisit and revitalize what goes on in their classrooms."—Margaret E. Holt, University of Georgia

Since the First Edition of The Adjunct Faculty Handbook was published in 1996, the number of adjunct faculty members in colleges and universities has increased to the point that most of those institutions could not function efficiently without them. This Second Edition addresses changes in today's higher education environment and their impact on the role of adjunct instructors. At a time when many adjuncts may be given little more than a start date, room number, and brief course description to prepare them for teaching a course, the Handbook provides administrators as well as part- and full-time faculty members with the resources they need to empower adjunct staff.
