Preface: I apologize if this is a duplicate question; I've searched for it and I believe my situation is distinct, since the answers I found were for post-doc or tenure-track interviews.
I'm preparing for an interview with the Dean of Instruction for an adjunct lecturer position. I've already had an informal interview with the co-chair of the department and that went really well. I prepared and asked a lot of questions in that meeting (about the student population, class size, departmental teaching philosophy, etc.) but now that they've been answered I'm not sure how to best use this formal interview. What information is useful to know about the institution, that the Dean of instruction might be able to answer? Right now my ideas are:
- What skills and qualities make an adjunct successful at [institution]?
- What common challenges do new adjuncts face?
- What do you enjoy about working at [institution]?
Are these appropriate questions? Are there other things that it would be good for me to know/ask about, that I might be missing?
