RESOURCES TO SUPPORT YOUR TEACHING
The Office of Academic Support Services provides clerical support to adjunct faculty and works with other college departments to secure resources for the enhancement of the teaching mission. Please consult the Frequently Asked Questions for additional information on 99 numbers, BannerWeb, Moodle, and library access.
Staff in this office are prepared to assist adjunct faculty with the preparation of course materials and other clerical tasks that relate to the teaching mission. Staff are skilled in the use of PowerPoint, Moodle course software, spreadsheets, scanning, presentations using MS Office software, as well as photocopying. Advance planning and plenty of lead time will assure an excellent finished product.
Adjunct faculty who wish to make use of limited, shared campus office space in the summer must complete and submit the office request form, available on the faculty forms page. The 2013 deadline will be announced in a March mailing.
Faculty Lounge in Seelye
During the summer session, SSW faculty may use room 207 in Seelye Hall as a faculty lounge. It has comfortable furniture, a refrigerator, a photocopier for jobs under 50 pages and other useful amenities, including a few computers and a printer for faculty use only.
Adjunct Faculty Computing
Smith is a networked computing environment. Information on activating accounts will be sent to faculty in April. Moodle is a Smith-supported, Web-based software available to faculty as a course enhancement tool.
All of our classrooms are air conditioned, accessible, and equipped with VCRs, overhead projectors and data projection equipment. Faculty who have media needs for their classroom presentations should visit Smith's classroom support Web page for more information about what is available and how to place a request.
The college uses an emergency contact system that exclusively utilizes your Smith email. Therefore, it is important that you receive emails sent to your Smith Mail account, especially when you are here in the summer. Information on how to forward Smith emails to another address can be found here.
