Associate faculty (sometimes called adjunct faculty, part-time faculty, or part-time lecturers) find a welcoming home and colleagues at the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), which supports the work and professional development of all faculty at IUPUI through many programs and resources. Whether you teach an online or hybrid course, in a face-to-face classroom, or in a clinical setting, we at the CTL are ready to support your work and professional development as a university instructor.
The Center for Teaching and Learning collaborates with, and supports, the professional development of associate faculty through signature events:
Center programs and teaching support are available to all instructors at IUPUI (associate faculty, tenure track, staff, lecturers, graduate students, and others), but we particularly encourage associate faculty to join our Associate Faculty Teaching Forum (AFTF), an event, program, and a community within which associate faculty can discuss and arrive at innovative solutions to the distinctive teaching challenges that associate faculty encounter at IUPUI.
The Center for Teaching and Learning also supports associate faculty with Resources (tip sheets and topical resources available online, and with equipment loans), Workshops, live and recorded Webinars, and with Individual Consultations—both in-person consultations (at our office in University Library) and at a distance (via video conference or telephone). Our center supports the efforts of associate faculty who seek to learn about, create, and to implement appropriate and effective teaching strategies, whether through instructional design (teaching strategies and techniques) or through the use of technologies (e.g., Canvas learning management system and various other hardware devices and digital applications). Resources, workshops, webinars, and individual consultations may be about (but are not limited to) topics such as:
