Lecturer (SA): Minimum Qualifications, Course Assignments, Supervision, Evaluation

- The course is one in which the graduate students from other fields enroll to supplement their core studies, but the instruction is not a core part of the advanced graduate curriculum in the instructor's discipline (e.g. foreign language instruction for a graduate student preparing to conduct fieldwork abroad; broad level introductory statistics or research methods in a field that uses statistical methods); or,
- The graduate student who would be employed as the instructor is considered qualified under the terms of the the campus-wide Policy on Minimum Qualifications for Instructional Staff (e.g. a student with an MSW teaching a course for MSW students).
