Adjuncts as educators have unique challenges depending on their personal and professional situations. Join us on Saturday, April 22 for a 4Cs conference from 10am-2pm at Middlesex Community College that will address issues each part-time educator faces in long-term professional development.
The 4Cs is seeking presenters of workshops by adjuncts and full-time educators and others to share expertise on successful strategies and pathways to goals. If you are interested in presenting, please sign up here.
Some of the planned workshops include:
- The role of Adjuncts and increasing demand for STEM professors.
- Adjuncts and Benefits ranging from Planning for Health, Retirement and Employment Entitlements, including insights from colleagues that cover Unemployment Entitlements between contracts.
- Finding a voice and the importance of political engagement to promote your voices regardless of political affiliation. The workshop will also investigate trends in the academic arena.
- “Publish or Perish”: How and why publishing research, expert opinion, and practical work in your discipline is a critical pathway to student and professional success.
