Fifty adjunct faculty members joined members of Brandman University Ontario Campus Director Patrick Pierson and full-time faculty member Jalin B. Johnson at the seventh bi-annual Professional Development Day held Nov. 19 at the Ontario campus.

The collaborative effort of full-time faculty members from the schools of Business, Education and Arts and Sciences introduced campus directors, clinical coordinators, academic advisors and other staff members from the Ontario, Riverside, Menifee and Victorville campuses to a variety of topics, including community service efforts, teaching and best practices and academic program updates.

“We are quite targeted in our efforts to bring quality content to the adjunct faculty, clinical coordinators, staff and academic advisors who attend this bi-annual event,” Said Johnson. “Prior to and immediately after each event, we survey our adjunct faculty from across the Inland Empire and High Desert region to learn both their areas of interest and areas where they may need assistance and professional development. We have been fortunate to have both a well-versed and talented planning team in addition to the participation of quality speakers and presenters from within the Brandman University community. With the support of the campus directors, staff and an amazing team of faculty services specialists (FSS) Ashley Walker, Rachelle Jack and Liz Jokerst, we continue to be successful.”

Assistant Vice Chancellor J. Murphy from the Center for Instructional Innovation (CII) highlighted “Improving Student Engagement.” Other speakers included Johnson, Pierson, Lynn Larsen, Nicole Schneider, Leticia Rojas, Nakisha Castillo and Shiela Bishop.
