Upcoming Adjunct Training Workshop Information

Before the start of each semester, the Center for Teaching & Learning sponsors workshops to help orient, inform and welcome new part-time faculty. Our next Adjunct Training Workshops will be offered on January 8th & 9th, 2010. Faculty who attend receive a $100 stipend, as well as an informative Handbook for New Faculty. Following each workshop, a customized technology training session is also offered, led by campus Instructional Technologist, Lauryl Lewis.
