    Session Description

    Many adjunct (as well as term and tenure-track) faculty at American University maintain an active research agenda. Ongoing research helps faculty stay current on advances in our fields and improve our capacities as teachers and mentors for students. This panel will feature adjunct professors reflecting on how our research adds value to our teaching.

    Learning Outcomes

    • Recognize how an active research agenda contributes to adjuncts’ (and other faculty’s) teaching practice
