I have been asked a question on using the first law of thermodynamics to explain why adiabatic processes are fast, and isothermal are slow. I know why they are fast and slow respectively.
-Adiabatic is fast so there is not enough time to let heat in and out. and dQ=0
-Isothermal is slow so there is time for it to adjust to temperature variations. and dT=0
but im unsure how using that equation will tell me the time, or why they take faster or slower, any help would be greatly appreciated

There is no time variable there, so I don't know why you are trying to accomplish this?
