Abstract

A major human factor trend in higher education is the use of part-time adjunct faculty to teach significant portions of a university's curriculum. In order to integrate these part-time instructors more fully into the university community, instill a greater sense of commitment, and maintain consistency and rigor of teaching and learning, institutions of higher learning need to create effective, integral and continuous opportunities for professional development. This paper describes a model designed to achieve these goals through building an online professional development community.
