Abstract: We will be discussing how to implement a training model for adjunct online educators, respective of how we plan to address these topics with our adjuncts: delivery platform, academic and student policies, technical and other support service, teaching procedure, course syllabus, rubric and grading, meeting standards, efficacy issues cheating, and evaluation. This paper will introduce participants to our training model, where the courses are written by our full-time professors, and approved within established guidelines of the University. We will discuss and investigate how (if) detailed course syllabi should be written and your ideas on how stringently course syllabi should be followed. We also plan to consider grading rubrics and their level of application. Additionally, we shall consider the subject of academic freedom in this matter, and plan to reference how the guidance and monitoring of our courses by our full-time faculty are accomplished.
