New Majority Faculty Day - now on Facebook

Post imported from New Faculty Majority Day blog:

No kidding. This is April 5 not 1. New Faculty Majority Day is now a group on Facebook. Are you on Facebook? If so, go directly to group (via link posted here) or search groups for "New Majority Faculty Day" and join. If not, then join, search & join. Post links, videos, post a comment, start a forum topic. Invite your precariously contingent friends & colleagues to join.

And while you're at it, visit other (Bob's) NMF Day blog, Changing Universities. More NMF Day ideas and links right here

Post your story of life as an adjunct, part timer, non-tenure track, temporary (or all of the above) faculty here:

There is another resource developing for adjuncts who are members of LinkedIn. This is the The Adjunct Network.

This is a recently established information sharing site. In this time of economic challenge and class discrimination within higher education, it is critical that all adjunct and temporary faculty unite. We fill in the gaps of between institutional capacity (commitment) and student demand (for quality and quantity of classes). There is no price differential between what a student pays for a class and what the status of the teacher is. Equal pay for equal work??? Or discount classes for discounted teacher??

LinkedIn's Adjunct Network sounds promising, possibly more professional, less social - if I still were, I would. As promising & affordable as social networking apps are, we can't tell which ones will best suit w/o using them more than just cursorily. Just a hunch, but I rather suspect we'll end up with series of overlapping networks - maybe something on the semantic web. APRIL 30, 2009 3:18 PM
