Two or More Weeks Prior to Semester: Prepare Teaching Materials

This is the real reason you have chosen to teach at UAA- the teaching part! 

  1. Begin to prepare and plan the class activities and assignments for at least the first few weeks.
  2. Select any extra readings and resources.
  3. Prepare your lectures.

Helpful hints:

  1. Use electronic documents whenever possible.
  2. Decide on a file naming convention for your documents and stick to it.
  3. Decide on a file organization structure and stick to it.
  1. Put the semester code in all the file names, e.g. 201303 for Fall 2013.
  2. Group your files by week or by unit.
  3. Avoid keeping multiple versions of files -or name them so that you know the most current version.
