Adjunct instructors may be employed to teach courses, make presentations or provide facilitation or other service activity when UW-Stout faculty are not available. Appointments of adjunct instructors will be made through and will be subject to existing personnel rules.

  1. A degree within the discipline an individual wishes to provide instruction
  2. Significant, applied experience within the professional setting of intended instruction
  3. Teaching experience and past performance
  4. Publication history
  5. Experience with online instruction
  6. An understanding of adult learner needs
  7. Completion of UW-Stout instructor orientation
  8. Updated vitae
