Job Description for Lecturer / Speaker

Being a lecturer/speaker means more than just talking. A lecturer/speaker has a responsibility to his or her student, as any professor would, as well as to his or her fellow instructors. Lecturers/speakers will spend a considerable amount of their time teaching students and building curricula. In addition to these tasks, they will need to develop course materials, attend faculty meetings, and generally test and evaluate students as needed. Once lecturers/speakers become more experienced at their work, they will have to help new instructors by showing them how to be successful and by demonstrating their responsibilities firsthand. If a student should ever need help, a lecturer/speaker must be available by having office hours so that students can reach him or her.
