Abstract

This handbook has been produced to help Sociology departments to provide support for their part-time teaching staff. It has been produced as part of an HEFCE Fund for the Development of Teaching and Learning (FDTL) project. It is based on current practice in Sociology departments and elsewhere in response to three changes in context: an increase in the number and proportion of part-time teachers; quality problems associated with the unsupported use of part-time teachers; and the introduction of accreditation for teachers in higher education.
