High School Instructor

FIU Courtesy Lecturer Appointment

High School instructors are invited to join FIU faculty as courtesy lecturer.  A courtesy appointment is non-tenure earning.  As a Courtesy Lecturer, you may teach courses in your areas of specialization at your high school.  Once your high school has signed an agreement with the Office of Academic Planning and Accountability, to be considered for a courtesy appointment your administration must email the dual enrollment office.

The credentialing process for Dual Enrollment courtesy appointment lecturers occurs at the level of FIU’s Academic unit.

FIU faculty liaisons work together with instructors to ensure that you are prepared to teach FIU courses.  Professional Development programs are offered for high school instructors.

For detailed credentialing criteria visit courtesy appointments at:

HSDE Registration List

In a collaborative effort, Dual Enrollment admissions and registration personnel will be available to high schools to provide information and answer specific questions about dual enrollment requirements and deadlines.  High school administrators  or assigned POI’s must verify student participation and eligibility by the third week of classes at the start of the semester.

FIU Faculty Liaison

FIU offers a Professional Development, Mentoring, and Oversight Dual Enrollment Program to ensure the courtesy lecturers are prepared to teach an FIU course. FIU will use any of following methods to determine any additional needed professional development/mentoring:

  1. Announced classroom visitation (observation of teaching and structured feedback using rubrics), review of syllabi (examining syllabi for all FIU specified components and providing sufficient details to students including plagiarism and academic misconduct policy).
  2. Review of teaching materials (PowerPoints, handouts, lesson plans or lecture notes, use of primary and secondary sources, etc.)
  3. Assessment of student learning (rubrics used for each type of student assignment and feedback provided to students for improvement – graded and ungraded student work).
  4. Review of exams/quizzes, and other types of student assessment (student artifacts such as homework, electronic or paper portfolios, essays, reports, term papers, oral and/or video recordings of student performance). For purposes of assessment processes, the courtesy lecturer will need to maintain two years’ worth of student papers and exams as these may be requested for on-campus review and FIU Professional Development Training. Courtesy appointment lecturers teaching FIU Dual Enrollment courses at high schools are required to participate in professional development training on FIU’s campus.
