Team teaching of courses is welcomed within the School. Faculty members who team teach a course with one other colleague three times within six years will receive credit for teaching two courses. When team-teaching the course with one other colleague the first time, no credit is given. When team-teaching the course a second time with a colleague within a four-year period, credit will be given for teaching one course. Upon team teaching the course a third time with a colleague within a six-year period from the first time it was taught, a second course credit will be given. Team teaching the course with another colleague a fourth time will start a new such cycle. Team teaching with more than one colleague will be handled on a case by case basis, as will be team teaching more than one class per year.
