I just read over this piece from the Chronicle Careers online site, Dear Adjunct Faculty Member. What’s sad (and funny) is how true it is. My favorite part is a bullet list of to dos … the best one:

Get high student evaluations. Even though none of us take these seriously, because many of us don’t get high student evaluations, it is an indication that students won’t complain about you. And again, that makes us look good.

What cracks me up is I had someone in our School tell me student evals don’t mean anything, so don’t put so much stock in the high marks you got. Right …

I like the Internet. A lot.
