The standard teaching load for lecturers (of any rank) is four (4) three (3)-credit didactic courses in each of the fall and winter semesters for a 100% appointment.   Following this model, each 3-credit course would carry a workload effort of 25% and each 4-credit course would be 33.33%.  This workload includes but is not limited to teaching courses, course preparatory work, and holding office hours.
