L&S Teaching Report

The Teaching Report report lists Faculty and renewable Academic Staff who have teaching commitments to a department/program. This report is reviewed by Teaching & Learning Administration in L&S. The Teaching Report is designed to assist departments and instructional programs as well as the College in documenting the allocation of Faculty and renewable Academic Staff teaching.
TLA requests this report each January for the upcoming academic year. TLA may also request an updated Teaching Report while evaluating short-term staffing requests.
Past copies of the Teaching Report are available in departmental Box folders (folder name = “48-#### Teaching Report”).

Instructions for the Teaching Report:

  • L&S Teaching & Learning Administration will email each department/program with a draft Teaching Report for 2023-24.
  • Updated Teaching Reports are due February 8, 2023 via email to teach.learn@ls.wisc.edu.
  • L&S Teaching & Learning Administration will upload the report to Box (folder name = “48-#### Teaching Report”). Amanda Mahr will follow up with questions if needed
