Unpacking the Experience of an Adjunct’s Participation in an Open Pedagogy Project Supported by the Library

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A common thread throughout the literature on adjunct faculty is that they consistently report feeling disconnected from the institution(s) they work for. As a result, we typically see that adjunct faculty are reluctant to pursue the adoption of “radical” teaching practices, like open pedagogy, and this reluctance is exacerbated by the time and effort required to make such pedagogical shifts. This presentation will unpack and examine one adjunct’s experience of participating in a library-led OER Faculty Fellowship opportunity that was open to both full-time and adjunct faculty at a private, 4-year institution in the United States: how her participation served to create an unexpected connection with a librarian and ultimately helped integrate her into the larger campus community. As the OER and OEP communities continue to grow and diversify, we hope this presentation will help spark a dialogue about how the academic community, not just the library, can play a role in facilitating and driving the inclusion and support of adjunct faculty now, as opposed to leaving them as an afterthought.
