Lecturers are generally limited to two courses per term. This will be a semester-by-semester appointment, with the possibility of renewal.
Teaching assignments may fluctuate and are contingent upon the schedule of courses offered each term, the required number of student enrollments in your tentatively scheduled course(s), and budget availability. Thus, we cannot guarantee that you will teach particular courses or that you will actually teach in a given term.
