Abstract

Lesley University employs almost 200 adjunct faculty members who help to teach approximately 1600 graduate students enrolled in a Technology in Education (TIE) master's program in twenty states. Distant classes are offered in both intensive weekend and online formats. This presentation focuses on how the TIE program uses a technology-based system to support distant adjunct faculty. This support includes guidance from faculty mentors, sharing case studies, conducting surveys, newsletters, and a program website. The details of this support system will be discussed along with a description of the latest supports that the TIE program is planning to institute.
