Searching for Online Adjunct Criminal Justice Jobs

How would you go about searching for online adjunct criminal justice jobs? How would you prepare yourself for such jobs? First off, the content of an online degree is virtually the same as a traditional degree. General requirements usually are covered with courses in Composition, Math, History, Government, and a foreign language. After general requirements are met, the student would take specialized training in:

Criminal Law I: The Basis and Application of Law

Crisis Intervention: How to Organize and Execute an Intervention

Victimology": Profiles of Victims

Probation and Parole: Methods

Computer Crimes: Navigation and Search Functions

Terrorism: Intelligence and Prevention

Crime Scene: Investigation and the Use of Technology

Gangs: Codes, Initiation, Ranking, Colors, Sociology of...

These areas of specialization are virtually the same in online and traditional formats. Therefore, it is not the content of the curriculum that distinguishes online education from traditional education; it is the delivery process. The traditional format requires the student and professor to meet at a specific place at a specific time, while the online training takes place in cyberspace. In practice, how is this difference manifest?

Imagine a new teacher for an online course signing into the course he/she is assigned to teach with his/her mentor as a guide, the first feature she will notice is that the monitor is divided into color coded sections and each section represents an aspect of the course. The cumulative effect of engaging each element will result in building confidence in the search for online teacher jobs. Searching for Online Adjunct Criminal Justice Jobs

Communication: Online Adjunct Criminal Justice Jobs

Online education takes place on the monitor of a computer. Once one has signed into the course, he or she will see color coded panels on the monitor. The first one to notice is Announcements. In Announcements, the administration can communicate with the students, providing them with changes in the curricula, scheduling of courses offered for next term, and so forth. The instructor of the course will give his office hours, his policy on plagiarism, and standards for submission of assignments.

As we move down the screen, we see the Assignment link. Here the instructor has posted lectures (sometimes in audio) and examples of applications. The tasks to be performed are given, along with a rubric giving a breakdown of designated points for each task performed.

At the bottom of the screen, we see the link, Problems and Solutions. Here, it becomes evident that the curriculum designers value independent thinking on the part of the student...in other words, they value the teaching of critical thinking. Here, the student is encouraged to share his/her discoveries with other students. For example, the initiating student may have discovered a way of navigating that saves time and energy and by sharing this with the class, she moves the whole class forward. Thus, critical thinking is promoted in the online mode of communication.

Now we come to the Grading. The online class provides automatic calculation of grades, giving the specific grades made per week on assignments such as the Discussion Thread, objective tests and project. The system calculates an average and this is useful in conferences with the student. In case the student and the instructor conflict even to the point of having legal representation, the grading record becomes all the more important. Sessions with the student and instructor are ordinarily kept private, but there are times when a dean or an attorney may be necessary. Also, in the event that the student wants to discuss a personal issue, there is the option of communicating by email, by phone, or even by instant mail, but all this has to be set up in advance since this steps out of the boundary of asymmetrical time.

Interactive Communication in Online Adjunct Criminal Justice Jobs

The very heart of the online course is the highly interactive exchange of student ideas. In the Discussion Thread, the instructor throws out a question or a general prompt and the students react. The instructor will move the question from one student to another by sharing his/her own experiences of working with the problem. Sometimes he will piggyback on what a student has said in order to expand the concept. In terms of student and teacher interaction, online teaching is quite similar to teaching face-to-face.

If a student does not understand a concept, she can post a message to Ask the Professor and get a 24 hr. turnaround. If the question concerns something basic in the curriculum, then a modularized tutorial will probably clear the problem. For example, it the student needs help understanding how to use the online library, it is available via a module. If the student needs help with grammar, it is provided in a tutorial, if the student needs help understanding documentation, then the tutorial on APA will probably clear up the confusion; if on avoiding plagiarism, then the module on Turnitin.com.

In short, the online courses are communicated in cyber space and time and the traditional courses are communicated in real time and space. This holds true whether the students are commnicating about an online adjunct community college job or a personal matter.
