  Lecturer Track
Senior Lecturers are expected to demonstrate exceptional mastery in teaching with a substantial impact on the university's educational mission.
During the terms of their appointments, Lecturers, Senior Lecturers and Principal Lecturers are subject to, and protected by, the same university policies concerning academic freedom and dismissal for cause (but not concerning reappointments) as are regular but untenured faculty members.
In each college and school, appointments in the Lecturer Track shall not be made before the date of the approval of the provost of that college's or school's policy specifying criteria and procedures regarding such appointments, as required by the provisions of this policy.

  Group 1   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The job of a lecturer involves coursework preparation, research, evaluation of written work, understanding of both course content and students as well as the environment in which the learning is taking place, at the same time dealing with administration and meeting the requirements stipulated by the relevant departments and the university.
A lecturer must have the ability to identify important tasks that require immediate attention and allocate their time accordingly ensuring that the holistic outcome is the completion of all tasks or requirements.
Lecturers often rely on secretaries to deal with administrative duties, the problem however is that such assistance is not always available and may not be as efficient and reliable as a lecturer requires it to be.

 Policies for Lecturer and Clinical Appointments
Lecturer and Clinical appointees are to be evaluated chiefly on the basis of their contributions to the teaching mission.
Like tenured and tenure-probationary colleagues, lecturers and clinical faculty are campus appointees, who should have the opportunity, consistent with their primary unit responsibilities, to support the mission of the campus through volunteer service activity that should be recognized as a professional contribution to the university.
Lecturers and Clinical appointees are expected to remain current in their pedagogical specialties, to attend and participate in national and international conferences, and to integrate advances in methodologies, materials, and technologies in their classroom teaching.

 The K-Zone: So you want to be a university lecturer?
The very word `lecturer' conjures up images of stuffed armchairs in oak-panelled studies, strolling over the lawns discussing the deconstruction of post-modern verse, and spending a couple of hours a week giving the same lecture as last year, and as the year before.
Lecturers are not motivated by the same things as other people -- money and power -- but by the desire to be acknowledged as an expert in a chosen field.
This is explicable on that basis that a lecturer's status is based on his or her recognition as an expert, so it does not help to show any uncertainty or intellectual weakness.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Muslim lecturer, Ali al-Timimi, was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday, on charges including counseling people to engage in a conspiracy to levy war against the United States, to aid the Taliban and to use firearms in violent crimes.
