Best Practices for Adjunct Faculty Support–Faculty Fellows
The Center for Teaching and Learning highlights the work of our Faculty Fellows in these special events. The Faculty Fellows will present their faculty development leadership projects in an interactive working lunch format, with healthy lunch options provided. All events are designed to provide the university community with the opportunity to learn and connect.

Project Description: Building on the previous work Faculty Fellow Ed Dauterich, my project aims to develop a template for an adjunct faculty portal for use across the University. Content areas may include:
- Onboarding information (new hire information, Flashline resources, grading procedures, University policies, best practices for departments, colleges and schools)
- Online teaching and learning (expectations, best practices, resources, support & training)
- Diversity and inclusion
- Student accessibility.
Much of this information already exists in different University “silos” and departments; this project will attempt aggregate these resources into a cohesive and streamlined clearinghouse. Another critical feature of the project will be developing and facilitating a platform for full-time and part-time faculty to communicate, share and learn from each other. The underlying goals of this project are to help build communities of practice among all faculty and assist adjunct faculty—especially those who teach online—to become fully engaged in the Kent State teaching community.
