Upcoming Professional Development Classes
A prospective online adjunct faculty member submits application documents via the “Adjunct Employment Opportunities” website. Application documents include cover letter, vita/resume, and copy of transcripts in .docx or .pdf format.

All submitted application documentation is transferred to the appropriate academic department for review.

Your application will be forwarded to the appropriate department for review. If the application is approved you will be placed in the respective department’s adjunct faculty pool. You will then be contacted by the academic department or by the Office of Electronic and Continuing Education as adjunct teaching positions become available.

Please note that being placed in the adjunct faculty pool does not ensure employment. Since enrollment varies from semester-to-semester, teaching positions are assigned on an as needed basis; and, instructors are notified as assignments become available.

If selected to teach a course, the academic department will contact the potential adjunct faculty member to discuss the employment contract.

The applicant will then proceed with the instructions provided in the Adjunct Introductory Resources & Information Toolkit.

The academic department provides all academic support and course materials.

The Office of Electronic and Continuing Education provides technical assistance as requested.

Quickstart Guide

As the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation explains, OER are “teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and repurposing by others. OER include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge.”

We have compiled a comprehensive list of Open Educational Resources for use by NSU Students, Faculty, and Staff.
