    Great tips in a concise format!

    As an adjunct professor and workshop trainer, I have found the myriad suggestions on teaching and organized outlines for curriculum development very helpful. I am suggesting this book as a source for others who teach and train trainers.

  2. Sheila Mullaney

    This is an excellent resource for anyone in administration. The material is clear and concise. I recommend this handbook for anyone who is supervising part-time faculty.

  3. Fred Fanning

    I used an earlier version of this book to prepare for my first university teaching job. I then purchased this updated version to keep my skills up-to-date. I highly recommend this book for anyone about to be or currently working as an adjunct instructor. The information is relevant and very helpful. I still refer to it.
