Summer and Winter Teaching

Protocol for Summer and Winter Teaching of ENGL110

Because freshmen are not allowed to take ENGL110 during the summer or winter 5-week sessions, and because the number of upperclassmen who need this required class is shrinking, we do not offer many sections of ENGL110 during these terms. When we do offer these courses, we want to ensure that we give opportunities to as many graduate students and Post-docs as possible.

We will staff these classes by asking for interest from instructors in this order: Full-time faculty, post-docs, graduate students, and then adjuncts. Post-docs and graduate students who have not taught a winter or summer session course will be given preference over those who have done so, with priority given to those who have been at UD the longest.

Because the number of instructors interested in teaching winter and summer sessions exceeds the number of available courses, candidates for these positions need to meet the following requirements:

  • Have taught ENGL110 at UD for at least two regular semesters
  • Have at least 80% participation in their student evaluations
