What does an Adjunct Instructor do?
Instructors provide teaching or training in a classroom setting or via a remote platform. They create and follow lesson plans, choose any necessary curriculum or resource materials, explain concepts and theories, and review assignments and examinations. They may also demonstrate techniques and assist with experiments, research, or hands-on projects. They frequently serve as mentors or advisors, offering insight on how the course or program may align with the student’s professional or educational goals.
Instructors typically have extensive professional experience in the subject area in which they are teaching. Specific requirements and credentials vary depending on the role and level, but instructors commonly would have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent professional experience. They must be well-organized, and have a passion for supporting students and encouraging them to succeed.
