Colleges in the U.S.—including yours—hire over 1,000,000 non-tenured teaching professionals each semester. Teaching faculty are often recruited and hired quickly. Part-Time Press professional development books help level the instructional field. Research shows that undergraduate students succeed most consistently when their courses are taught by motivated, organized and prepared teaching professionals. Research also shows that regularly providing teaching professionals with orientation, mentoring and/or development materials and opportunities leads to more positive student outcomes.

Our publishing company has helped prepare hundreds of thousands of teaching faculty for their teaching assignments—including industry professionals who are experts in their fields but new to the college classroom. Our books, used in over 2,000 colleges throughout the U.S., help faculty sharpen their organizational skills, improve their instructional techniques and become better grounded in the latest pedagogical methods used to improve student retention and success.

Part-Time Press authors offer up proven strategies and techniques to help teaching professionals meet the unique challenges associated with working as non-tenured faculty members.
