Abstract: When programs grow, institutions may need to rely on adjunct faculty. When these adjuncts are working in an online learning environment, training them to address students’ needs and teach content as competently as full-time faculty can be a challenge. A variety of strategies have been implemented to build a team of adjunct faculty who are trained specifically for the online learning environment. These strategies emphasize valuing, training, and building community for adjunct faculty.
