Take a look at the Council of Graduate Studies’ Understanding Career Pathways publication and a site that lists other programs aimed at preparing teaching faculty in the Preparing Future Faculty Program.
It’s important to keep in mind that adjunct teaching is not a career goal but can be a short-term way to learn about teaching-intensive institutions, to prepare for applying for full-time work. For those of you who are doing a lot of adjunct work, be sure to familiarize yourselves with the adjunct advocacy movement in academics, which aims to improve conditions for adjunct instructors.
A site that gathers information about adjunct working conditions and pay is Josh Boldt’s (@josh_boldt) site for The Adjunct Project.
An advocacy network for adjunct is the New Faculty Majority, headed by Maria Maisto (@MariaMaistoNFM).
