Memorandum To: Mary Wells, Dean of Faculty From: Mary LaCasse, Associate Professor Date: September 17, 2010 Subject: Creating a Program to Implement Continuity and Congruity of Classes among Adjunct Instructors Continuity and Congruity of Classes Taught by Adjunct Instructors Creating a program to improve the continuity and congruity of our classes taught by adjunct faculty will improve the quality of the education that the students at Hesser College receive. There is a heavy volume of adjunct faculty at our institution. These adjunct instructors receive no training as to what information needs to be covered in the classes that they teach. When an adjunct instructor is hired, they receive the textbook for the class, with nothing said or done after this point regarding the class that they are teaching. A program needs to be created where adjuncts receive clear guidelines and details as to what is expected of them. Problems involving Adjunct Instructors In order for the college to maintain its accreditation, certain criteria must be covered by every class. Each adjunct faculty does their best to teach the information that they think is important in the class that they are teaching. Each adjunct instructor has their own strengths and weakness. It is apparent that the adjuncts are focusing their class based on their strengths, while neglecting topics that they are unfamiliar with or don’t know as much information about. This style of teaching is hurting Hesser students academically because they are not being taught the necessary information that they need to succeed in the workplace. There are several journal articles that are available which address these issues that we are having and also explain how to handle these problems. Certain guidelines must be established so adjunct instructors have a clear understanding of the expectations of each class to maintain Hesser College’s integrity and accreditation. Researched Proposal I have outlined the details of this program in the attached proposal. The name of my project is “Hesser United”. I really hope that with your help, we can make Hesser College the best possible learning environment for our students. You can reach me at 603-296-6466 or [email protected] . Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing your response.
