Teach Online | Adjunct Faculty Teaching Jobs We build our courses in advance so there are common outcomes/objectives for all students taking a particular course and so the instructor can focus their time and attention on their students, working with individuals who need additional assistance and adding their own resources as they see appropriate to enhance student comprehension. We rely on our faculty to bring our courses to life. Faculty involvement is essential to keeping these courses fresh and relevant. We expect faculty to evaluate and give feedback for students engaging on discussion boards, monitor automated assessments to identify content areas where students are struggling, and manually review written assessments like papers, journals or presentations. We also offer our faculty the opportunity to have input into the update cycle of the courses.

What is Agile Project Management Within agile development, Scrum has the most to say about exactly what is agile project management. So let’s use Scrum as our model for answering this question. On a Scrum project, there are three roles: product owner, ScrumMaster and team.
