  • Supporting students
  • Developing synchronous and asynchronous classroom techniques
  • Becoming ADA compliant in the classroom
  • Making full use of Blackboard technology and embedding interactive web-based tools
  • Using Live Text technology and support.

More than 45 adjunct faculty and clinical coordinators attended the sessions at the Ontario campus.

They also reviewed academic integrity and APA formatting. Speakers and breakout session facilitators were

  • Patrick Pierson, Ontario campus director
  • Jalin B. Johnson, Ed.D., School of Business and Professional Studies faculty
  • Leticia Rojas, Ed.D., School of Education faculty
  • Nicole Schneider, Ed.D., School of Education faculty
  • Barbara Bartels, Ed.D., assistant vice chancellor of Community Relations and Strategic Business Development
  • Jonathan Greenberg, Ed.D., School of Education, adjunct and Ed.D. cohort mentor

Adjunct trainingJohnson said feedback included appreciation for getting a chance to share problems and solutions with peers and the introduction of new teaching strategies.

“This is my sixth year facilitating and being a part of the planning team for this bi-annual event. Our adjunct faculty and clinical coordinators do so much for our students. We are pleased to give them something additional in return,” said Johnson.
