The Center for Teaching and Learning offers the Adjunct Faculty Certification Course once per term. The course is offered as a 6-hour workshop with online content and classroom observations completed within 5 weeks. Completion of this certification course along with teaching 9 payload hours will make an adjunct eligible to request the rank of Lecturer II. Adjunct faculty who are already Lecturer II and would like to facilitate future Adjunct Faculty Certification Courses may qualify to do so by attending the certification course. Please contact Derek Petrey for more details on becoming qualified to facilitate future sessions.
Adjunct faculty are prohibited from being assigned or accepting more than 12 payload hours per semester or any combination of payload hours and other work or compensation at the college which result in working in excess of 28 actual hours per week. Although participation in this course is unpaid, given the amount of time required to complete, this certification is the equivalent of 1 payload hour at Sinclair.

The goal of the course is to give adjunct faculty tools and resources to better prepare them to teach classes at Sinclair Community College. We sincerely hope you find taking this course useful resulting in a feeling of preparedness when you enter the next classroom full of students.
