Lecturers at Ohio State
At Ohio State, associated faculty have many job titles: professor of practice, part-time faculty, lecturer, senior lecturer and more. “Lecturer” is the most common designation for those whose main job tasks include teaching in a non-tenure role. No matter what your formal title, associated faculty do so much more than simply lecturing! In addition to the resources and programming available to all instructors, UITL offers programming and opportunities designed to meet the unique needs and challenges associated faculty may face.
Lecturers are eligible to apply for grants for individual teaching development projects, departmental development, or community building programs. Learn more about each of the grant programs offered by UITL here.
Lecturer Learning Community
The OSTEP Lecturer Learning Community (LLC) provides a select cohort of lecturers and senior lecturers with an extended opportunity to converse with and support each other in the process of enhancing their teaching. In addition to providing community, the overarching goal of the LLC is for lecturers to make informed changes that increase the effectiveness of their teaching. Learn more or apply for the 2019-20 cohort here.
All associated faculty are welcome to join any of our open-campus events throughout the year. We also recognize lecturers may benefit from additional programming tailored to their needs. If you are unsure about whether a specific event is right for you, please contact us.
Lecturer Lunch Series
One challenge for lecturers is finding large blocks of time to put their ideas for teaching into action. In this new series designed for associated faculty, we use 15-minute online meetings spread out over the term to make teaching development manageable. Discuss challenges and questions about a topic, review foundational strategies, then plan and share small changes to implement each month. Drop in for some fresh ideas on your lunch break or attend the whole series as a way to complete a large project across the term.
