Faculty instructional responsibilities
The Media School follows campus guidelines on faculty members’ teaching responsibilities.
The Bloomington Faculty Council charges the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs to communicate to the faculty each semester that: Faculty members teaching courses have the responsibility to provide instruction as scheduled. Variations from the schedule may occur for a variety of reasons, including illness, professional activities, and pedagogical considerations. When such variations occur, it is the responsibility of the faculty member both to provide equivalent activity for the students in the course and to notify the chairperson of the department offering the course of the schedule change.
(Faculty Instructional Responsibilities section approved by Bloomington Faculty Council 1/20/81)
Faculty members are thus expected to teach all weeks of the semester leading up to the final exam week, and to use their entire class periods to provide instruction.
