Information for Cinema Art + Science

Important Fall 2014 Dates

There are seven pay periods during the fall semester: September 30, October 15, 31, November 14, 26, December 15, 23

The online Teaching Availability Form will open on September 1, 2014. This form provides department schedulers the necessary information for accurate timely teaching assignments for the Spring 2015 semester. You will have until September 15, 2014 to submit a completed request for courses.  No course requests may be submitted after September 15, 2014.

This form, linked from the Faculty tab in Oasis, replaces any other method you may have previously used to communicate your teaching availability.  This is the only way to notify your department that you are requesting course assignments.

If you have problems viewing or using the form, contact Client Services at (312) 369-7001 or clientservices@colum.edu.  If you have questions about the schedule, please contact your Coordinator(s).

Teacher Availability Form
Submission of this form constitutes a request, not a guarantee, of teaching assignment. Further, since course enrollment and program needs, as well as your qualifications and evaluations, determine teaching assignments, no assignment can be considered final until student registration is completed.

Teaching Assignment Form
Note: Assignments are contingent on sufficient enrollment.  If you have been assigned a class(es), view on your Faculty Tab on Oasis. If your teaching assignment is incorrect, or if you are unsure about your rate of pay, please contact Margie Barrett.

Substitute Teaching
As per the PFAC Agreement under heading Illness/Personal Emergency/Professional Development Day

Any unit member may miss one (1) class per course per semester due to illness or personal emergency, or to accommodate professional development, without penalty providing that notification is given to the Department Chairperson, or his or her departmental designee, prior to the class meeting. Failure to notify according to this procedure will result in loss of compensation for that class meeting. Sick days are not cumulative; they may not be carried over to the next semester.
