Adjunct Faculty Teaching & Learning Institute
Welcome to UCO!
We are glad you have joined our learning community and look forward to working with you.
The Center for Excellence in Transformative Teaching and Learning and the Office of Academic Affairs are deeply committed to helping adjunct faculty become ever more proficient teachers as they construct their career paths. The Adjunct Faculty Teaching & Learning Institute was thoughtfully designed and meticulously planned by UCO faculty to meet the needs of adjunct faculty.
The program starts with a faculty resource fair and dinner, then moves on to the Teaching & Learning Institute, where attendees will learn how to create high-impact practices and how to utilize proven approaches and techniques that maximize student engagement, collaboration, and transformative learning opportunities. It concludes with an orientation carefully designed to acquaint you with various aspects of UCO, including campus safety, innovative education technology and technology training opportunities. Returning adjunct faculty may choose to leave early at the start of the orientation portion if they feel it is not needed.
Hosted by the Center for Excellence in Transformative Teaching and Learning, Office of Academic Affairs and Professional Development, this gathering is designed to reduce the isolation that permeates teaching in higher education institutions, create positive professional relationships, assist adjunct faculty members to become more effective teachers, and strengthen our efforts to forge significant transformative learning experiences for our students.
Dinner will be provided at the start of the Orientation section, and a full time faculty member from your discipline will be invited to eat with you at your request.
