Online Orientation for Adjunct Faculty: 

Teaching Tasks

We hope this section will help you succeed as an adjunct faculty member at UAA.

Please remember:

  • You are responsible to attend all classes or arrange make up classes.
  • It is often advisable to keep religious and political views out of the classroom.
  • You are not alone!  You have help - click on Resources for Adjunct Faculty at the left for suggestions.
  • We are grateful that you are teaching at UAA!

This planner is divided into 4 sections:

  • Preparing to teach
  • First day of classes
  • During the semester
  • End of the semester

Each section has a recommended checklist of items.  

If you have just been assigned a class within a week of the first class meeting, check out Crash Course, then come back here when you catch your breath.

This planner was designed primarily for traditional on campus classes. Check out the Note on Distance Ed if you are teaching a distance class.

If there is something that you aren’t sure about, check out the Resources or the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) on the left . If you think something needs to be added to the planner, click on the Feedback link on the left.

Best wishes and thank you!
