Congrats GRCC Author Tom Mulder

Tom Mulder, English Composition faculty member, recently had his book English Composition Teacher’s Guidebook: How to Survive (and even Thrive) as an Adjunct or Part-time Instructor published.

Written for English Composition faculty, the book will provide great ideas for any faculty member who seeks to improve student writing. Faculty who travel from campus to campus will also find tips for managing paperwork and expectations from each site.

From the publisher: “This book packages together all the coursework required for one complete semester’s materials in the introductory college composition course. It is concise but comprehensive, portable and accessible, pragmatic yet pedagogically and theoretically sound. And, it is filled with lessons and activities ready for any instructor to teach tomorrow-or even today, when necessary. This Guidebook is designed to help the part-time college writing instructor survive the first year of teaching an introductory college composition class. Written primarily for adjunct instructors, it could benefit any college professor, teaching assistant, or student taking or preparing to take the first-year writing course. Beyond survival, the Guidebook may even help you, too, to thrive.”

Congratulations on a job well done, Tom!

CANCELED: Library Workshop for Adjunct Faculty

This session was canceled and event planners hope to reschedule during April. Adjunct Faculty are invited to attend the Adjunct Learning Day on Saturday March 19. It will be held in the ATC.

Library Resources for You and Your Students Session II 10:45 a.m. – noon ATC Computer Lab 227

Library Resources for You and Your Students will be led by Nan Schichtel, Assistant Professor, Information Literacy and Outreach. Bring your class reading lists to this hands-on computer session. Librarians will help you create permanent Blackboard links to online versions of articles found in GRCC’s licensed library databases — easily and legally. Linking articles reduces costs of printing for classroom distribution or course packs.

After this session, you will be able to:
1. Identify and be able to access library resources, both on campus and online.
2. Create Blackboard links to articles from GRCC’s licensed databases.
3. Develop a plan for integrating GRCC library resources in at least one course.
