Access to content in courses not previously taught
Greetings GCU Colleagues. I am reaching out as an adjunct faculty member for CHSS as well as CDS. I have instructed several courses at the undergraduate and doctoral levels, and I just received a contract for a course in the Master's program for psychology.
I am challenged by my inability to access course materials (syllabus, text, articles, etc.) earlier than one week prior to class. From what I have experienced in all my courses, this is the case.
I would very much like to have more than one week to review the organization of the course, prepare CATs, read and digest the content, and research supplemental content that could enhance the student experience; however, working one week ahead does not create the optimal environment for such preparation.
How do others of you address this challenge? Are there areas where course syllabi and content from prior (recent) versions of the courses are available to provide some level of awareness prior to jumping in?
I look forward to any thoughts, guidance, or suggestions from you all.
