In August 2015, TEDU adjuncts were invited to participate in a 2-day workshop that covered topics particularly relevant to adjuncts in this department.
OAKS training topics introduced communication tools to sue when adjuncts teach off campus or come on campus less often than regular faculty; the session included a lab in which participants could begin setting up these tools in their OAKS courses.
Other presentations covered departmental policies and expectations for all TEDU courses
