New Adjunct Faculty Success Workshop
The next New Adjunct Faculty Success Workshop will be held Saturday, January 12, 2019 in the MIX @ Fenwick.
Please register here by January 10th. Please notify the Human Resources liaison in your department after you register for this event.
The workshop is specifically designed to meet the unique needs and challenges faced by adjunct faculty, support your transition to campus, and develop practical strategies for success with your students. Across the day, we will provide a broad overview of working at Mason, a campus resource fair, introductions to important policies, and sessions to enhance your teaching skills for online and in-person classes. You will also have hands-on work time to design your courses and complete the required Title IX and Sexual Harassment Prevention training compliance. We offer something for everybody, whether you've been teaching for decades or you're about to teach your first class.
