Abstract

In higher education, courses and curriculum are purportedly the intellectual property of the academic departments. Academic departments, then, provide instructors or faculty to teach. The assignment of faculty to teach in distance-based programs directly implies there needs to exist some level of financial incentive for the home department of those faculty, as well as direct incentive to the faculty who are involved in teaching. After all expenses are accounted for, then,what model for faculty compensation provides the greatest level of incentive to participate in professional studies? Building on previous scholarship and over a year of additional research,this paper focuses on the impact of numerous employed faculty compensation models across multiple institutions of higher education.A survey of these many institutions of higher learning, regarding their compensation strategy for adjunct faculty, was collected and compiled. This presentation will share the results of this cross-institution study and encourage input from attendees on their experience with these and other methods/practices.
