Teaching Assignments and Class Schedules
Faculty members are assigned to teach specific courses by the Director. The primary considerations for course assignments are prior teaching experience, subject expertise, and shared responsibility among the faculty for service and introductory courses. Questions regarding teaching assignments should be addressed to the Director. In the case of a dispute or request for reassignment, the faculty member may request review by the FAC which will make a recommendation to the Director.
Scheduling of classes is the responsibility of the Undergraduate Program Coordinator with approval of the Director. The primary consideration for scheduling classes is student need with regard to meeting program or major requirements within a reasonable time frame. In addition, the scheduling of some classes may be determined by the need to serve nontraditional students. Curricular needs, faculty expertise, and faculty preference are considered. Consideration is also given to the number of preparations (different courses).
