Thanks For Killing Time at AdjunctNation.com

As I’ve written before, one of the most enjoyable aspects of my job is working on our web site. It pleases me no end to provide a much-used resource for the nation’s 700,000 faculty off the tenure-track. In March, we served up about 3 million pages. Better still, our page count per user was a very respectable 8. In fact, when compared to The Chronicle of Higher Education’s web site, and InsideHigherEd.com, our users stay on our site viewing content much longer, and view 4-6 times as many pages when they stop by. Thanks!

In April, we’re launching a new blog by writer Greg Beatty. Greg is going to write about, well, reading, writing, publishing and research—with an adjunct slant, of course. I asked Greg to blog about research and publishing. I did this because, as we know, adjunct faculty conduct research and publish. Furthermore, those non-tenured faculty who expect to jump onto the tenure-track must conduct research and publish if they’re going to be successful. I hope you enjoy this new blog.  

This month, cartoonist Matt Hall sent along a Super Adjunct blog entry that lampoons the “adjunct award” event at fictitious Goose Egg University, where our hero Super Adjunct teaches. Check out Matt’s new blog entry here. I recently wrote about adjunct award apartheid in my blog at Chronicle.com (“Separate and Unequal Teaching Awards”). Great minds think alike; I never mentioned my Chronicle blog piece to Matt, and he outlined his new piece to me in general terms. Ah, well, enjoy.
