Faculty Rank Qs
Yes, at first. But we recognize that some adjuncts have a significant amount of experience and skills gained from previous teaching. Once you are established as an OKWU adjunct instructor, communicate with one of the AGS Deans to discuss ways we can recognize that experience. Generally speaking, we would ask you to provide some form of evidence for certain credentials or development topics for hich we can then award the relevant digital badge. For instance, you may have completed teaching training at another institution, created or taught professional workshops related to some aspect of teaching, and so forth. Provided that those activities have been done within the last 4-5 years, we will be happy to recognize those retroactively.
We will also look at granting exceptions to the time and teaching load requirements if you have taught a comparable number of courses and timeframe at a comparable institution.
Simply put, we are looking to invest in those who are looking to invest in us. Which we think describes most of our faculty.
