Jennifer, Fan, and two other AECT PhD students presented as panelists in a moderated panel session entitled “Debating an increase in ALT-AC positions in the university and their impact on AECT student lives.” The session sought to offer facts, myths, and personal experiences about alternative academic positions and engage participants in discussion about how graduate students are navigating the changing hiring and career landscape in higher education.
