3.1 Teaching

Teaching is a primary responsibility for most faculty. No single definition can encompass the variety of ways that “good” teachers enact their practice. The University expects that faculty will take teaching seriously and will work to maintain teaching excellence throughout their professional careers. Teaching encompasses not only classroom or online instruction but also advising and mentoring, supervision of students in field placements, internships and practica, and support and supervision of graduate study, writing, and research.

Teaching loads are defined by the various departments and colleges and are determined at those levels.
