The deadline for teaching a Spring 2018 course has already passed. Course Applications for Fall 2018 will be available at the beginning of the Spring 2018 semester.

The following two forms will only be used if your course is approved by StuCo:

The midsemester Teacher Evaluation form will be used by your students to evaluate your teaching progress. Additionally, the Final Course Evaluation form will be used as a final assessment of your teaching.

The Course Proceedings form [.pdf] will be used by the StuCo Committee to serve as an official observance of the proceedings of your course.
