I learned a lot from this book.
Mary T. McConnelly –
I purchased a copy of this book at a conference. Our part-time faculty population includes those who are new to teaching as well as those who have been working at the college for quite some time. This book is a collection of pieces from administrators, faculty and others who focus on helping both the new and returning part-time faculty member become more comfortable and proficient in the classroom. There is also a section which touches on teaching online, and it is a solid introduction to the topic, but not a definitive guide to teaching distance ed courses. I would definitely say that Handbook 2 is an excellent resource for those faculty who have some experience in the classroom already (returning part-timers).
For new part-timers, particularly for those part-time faculty coming from industry, the book’s focus on strategies and matters pedagogical could be a bit over-whelming, particularly without some sort of formal orientation or mentoring program in place. However, as a pairing with a structured introduction to teaching and classroom management, this book would be excellent for part-time faculty new to a teaching program. Returning part-time faculty will find many helpful teaching tips and suggestions and could surely refer back to the various essays throughout the course of any given semester.
Great info for any instructor.
I highly recommend this for any teacher, instructor, or adjunct. Great and simple ideas you can use in class, especially with adult learners! I provided a copy to all instructors.
