I have been thinking about this afternoon’s #AdjunctChat, as I have not facilitated a Twitter chat before. Perhaps it will just be me?! [jeffreykeefer]

@jgieseking @bonstewart That looks fantastic! For the first time I wish I were not finished with my #PhD! Alas, I do not appear eligible 🙁 [jeffreykeefer]

@Jessifer @slamteacher @HybridPed Yes, it is always a tricky thing to get something in place that will work for everybody. [jeffreykeefer]

It is time for our scheduled #AdjunctChat; anybody teaching HE less than FT or permanent are welcome to join in and share! [jeffreykeefer]

Thanks for coming together today to informally discuss things that affect us as #adjuncts (in any capacity) in higher education #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]

Let me share a little background in this idea for #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
Today was the best day and time based on a poll I created http://t.co/ipbHlJOeMw and tried to disseminate to gauge interest #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
As an #adjunct faculty member in HE for years (I work FT elsewhere), I sometimes feel I don’t have a robust support community #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
While working on my #PhD, I found great support and sharing through participating in #phdchat, both in real-time and ongoing #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
Now that my HE interaction is primarily as an #adjunct, I wondered if there were also not a similar community of support! #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
That is what led me to reaching out to others to determine if I were alone or if other #adjuncts shared a similar sentiment #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
What better way to start than by asking the simple question “What community of support do you want or need as an #adjunct?” #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
I wondered if a discussion around this may be helpful or useful, and if we use a tag #AdjunctChat others can read or add to this later. [jeffreykeefer]

I have only recently started to wonder about levels or types of support for #adjunct needs #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
@buridan Blogs and message boards, yes, though I have not really found ongoing conversations or discussions on a wide level #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
When I think of #adjunct work, I think about PT professionals interested in teaching and learning though I know it is much more #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
@buridan Yes, adjunct unions are growing in numbers, though I am not sure about their effectiveness. Have you found them to be? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
I suppose a question about #adjunct unions is how or what forms of support they offer. Do people find them supportive? How? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
@buridan Hmm, I wonder what you mean about your #adjuncts in their union doing "ok?" #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
I wonder how many #adjuncts are unionized, and to what extent they support their members? Support has so many levels of meaning #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
What does support for #adjuncts mean to you? Financial, job security, teaching freedom, health benefits, transition to FT? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
I have also been thinking about program or discipline integrity or continuation, especially with high % of #adjuncts #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
twitter (feed #2)
I #adjunct teach for love of teaching, though I am not clear where it may (or not) lead. Has this developed for anybody? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
I am also wondering how people who do #adjunct teaching feel free to practice, develop, or lead their disciplines? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
Thinking about this, I wonder if #adjunct are more or less present in practitioner programs compared to more theoretical ones? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
I approach #adjunct work from the perspective of PT HE teaching. I wonder how academic orgs are strategically relying on them? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
Increasingly, I see programs where the majority of faculty are #adjuncts. Wonder what the long-term implications may be? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
Better yet, I wonder if some programs are intending to use #adjuncts to eliminate tenure, for good or bad (and for whom!?) #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
Granted, not every country or region has tenure, though it has become quite present in US HE #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
Can discussing #adjunct issues be done without getting into considerations of power or (im)balance #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
@buridan There is certainly flexibility! How or who do you think benefits from this, and how can we support those who don’t? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
I keep coming back to the area of continuity, and wonder if perhaps some disciplines can benefit from #adjuncts disruption? #AdjunctChat [jeffreykeefer]
