Adjunct Faculty - Want to become full-time - how to keep chair appraised of positive feedback?
I am part-time adjunct faculty at a large institution where we are not invited to participate in most departmental events (meetings, reviews, lunches, etc.). Each year, there is at least one full-time position open and I WANT ONE!
Each semester, I seem to get several emails from students thanking me or letting me know how much they've enjoyed my classes. Additionally, this semester, I mentored 3 students to successful job placements; I teach business communications - resumes and interviewing (guess what method I teach!).
How can I best keep my chair informed of this kind of activity to improve my chances of being considered for a full-time position? Forwarding the emails seems crass.....any thoughts?
Thank you so much!
