Spring 2021 AP Academy Orientation Dates for
new adjunct, part-time, temporary and dual enrollment instructors
Saturday, November 21, 2020 - 9:00am-1:00pm
Thursday, January 7, 2021 - 9:00am-1:00pm
The Office of Academic Services and Engagement (ASE) is devoted to helping adjunct, part-time and temporary faculty become proficient teachers as they engage students inside and outside of the classroom.
The ASE office coordinates the orientation, called AP Academy, where attendees will be acquainted with various aspects of APSU, including campus safety, innovative education technology and technology training opportunities. Throughout the orientation process, participants will learn how to utilize proven approaches and techniques that maximize student engagement, collaboration, and transformative learning opportunities. Participants will also gain a clear understanding of relevant university policies and procedures and become effective referral agents.
Traditionally, the program will conclude with the Welcome Reception; this gathering is designed to reduce the isolation that permeates teaching in higher education institutions, create positive professional relationships, assist adjunct and part-time faculty members to become more effective teachers, and strengthen our efforts to forge significant transformative learning experiences for our students. The Welcome Reception will be resumed after social distancing restrictions are modified.
