When is the next #ECRchat? The site http://t.co/LVzxxpfbTQ still mentions 4/11 [jeffreykeefer]

Wondering if #ECRchat meets the needs of the 75% of US adjuncts who teach but will never achieve tenure? [jeffreykeefer]

Is there a chat for adjuncts who want FT HE tenure but will never have it due to a US culture of HE exploitation? #ECRchat #altac #phdchat [jeffreykeefer]

Wow, all sorts of conversations this week that I was involved with that somehow I did not get back to. Alas, tempus fugit! [jeffreykeefer]

@lizgloyn Thanks; put it on the calendar and will try to get to it. While I am always up by then, the dogs and work prep eat up my time! [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy Is that adjuncting as in teaching or working I. A consulting role? [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy It is easier if adjuncts do not expect anything from HE. that can make commitment an odd thing that affects personal engagement. [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy Teaching about teaching and learning? [jeffreykeefer]

I am glad the Boston terrorism event seems to be resolving, but am increasingly concerned at the cost and challenges catching only one kid. [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy I have taught as an adjunct for years, all while working FT elsewhere, so I was never dependent on the teaching. [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy I wonder about the implications of this on continuation or freshness of teaching and scholarship in HE. [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy That sounds great. Are you already doing this or will this be new? [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy How exciting. Positive energy to you there!! [jeffreykeefer]

RT @snarkyphd: @JeffreyKeefer @KL_Wheat To me, ECR = up to about 5yrs after PhD grad @deborahbrian @JackieKirkham @MeganJMcPherson @MVEG001… [jeffreykeefer]

@MVEG001 @KL_Wheat @snarkyphd Indeed we cannot see the future and do not know how an increase in doctorates will alter HE & society #ECRChat [jeffreykeefer]

@gavatron Thanks! Defended on 25 March and awarded the degree then. Phew! [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy At MOST organizations innovation is a challenge. Those I power do not like to alter the status quo, including HE. [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
@peoplegogy You do have ideals! Why do you think HE is supposed to be built upon new research? [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
@mathiaspoulsen Excellent! Positive energy for it to move forward. [jeffreykeefer]
twitter (feed #2)
@gavatron Yes, and now starting to focus on the publishing element, something I often let go of and do not complete. [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy Power, reputation, a job, stability, influence, mission, vision, an outlet for ideas, etc. Lots of reasons as in any other org. [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy All orgs have their own criteria for becoming one of “us.” Publishing demonstrates research prowess but also bragging rights. [jeffreykeefer]

@peoplegogy To be clear, I like non-profit HE, but do not have a rosy vision of it being somehow ipso facto better than people anywhere else [jeffreykeefer]
