The upcoming New Adjunct Faculty Success Workshop will be held virtually on Saturday, January 14, 2023. Attending the workshop helps new adjunct faculty transition into their role at Mason with professional development support, resources, and friendly faces on campus.

|• Jump Start Your First Two Weeks|
• Engaging Students in Classroom-based Courses
• Responding to Students

|• Transforming Assignments for Student Success
