Internships, Co-ops and Supervision of Experiential Learning

Certain courses for academic credit require faculty supervision of a student experience rather than teaching a course that meets the standard number of hours per week. Internships and co-ops are not calculated as part of a faculty member’s load or overload if the number of students supervised is fewer than ten. In those cases, faculty will be compensated at $150 per student for such supervision.  Departments may assign a course section in an internship or co-op as a regular course that is part of a faculty member’s standard teaching load if the enrollment is ten or more.

Practicums, clinical experiences, student teaching and other internships specific to Nursing Education and Teacher Education are governed by accrediting board standards regarding the number of supervisions equal to one course in load credit and thus not subject to the minimum of ten described above.
