…on life at home, in my head, and online
is there a place here for online adjunct?
How so, a place, and where? You're free to comment, yes: an adjunct is an adjunct is an adjunct (except for such as Jill Biden, I guess!).
How online adjuncts can participate in New Faculty Majority Day raises a whole new set of questions - but ones imo we must address. Lost, your numbers are growing - and even more invisible among the already invisible.There is no quad, no public space. Platforms for virtual classroom are subject to undetected monitoring - not like being visited and seeing that body sitting in the back of the classroom, occupying physical space. Welcome to the panopticon.Is the institution proprietary (for profit) or public, the clicks side of institutional bricks? Would an email signature line with logo get you in trouble?Is there an off-site (not on the system platform & sans management lurkers) for getting together online?
... but april 30 is after the semester's over in most places :(
That would be possible if a forum was set up. I'm actually looking into that for my own union.
If the 30th is too late on your campus, schedule activities for earlier. Consider the whole month of April a Campus Equity Month. This is purposely a U-Organize-It kind of event, since conditions as well as schedules on campuses vary so widely.
Vanessa, You pose an interesting problem. People should be encouraged to participate in anyway they feel comfortable.
in another sense, every day ia NFM Day...
No doubt showing my age with this one ... but I'm thinking happenings, street (or quad) theater... in addition to more mundane and easier to pull off...tees, bumper stickers, flyers, posters. And still thinking about what online adjuncts could. Perhaps the direction there is less digital (probably not wise to have a NMF Day signature line - albeit tempting - on emails to boss) and more on the street where they live local.
I'd love to distribute this flyer to my fellow adjuncts on campus, but the gif file you've provided here is somewhat low resolution. Is there any way you could post a high res pdf of the flyer?
The blog host won't take a .pdf file, but if you email Bob Samuels at the address above or me at email@example.com, one of us can send you a .pdf (or even a .doc) version as attachment.
