University of Iowa
Appointments and Compensation Banner

Faculty with regular appointments at the University of Iowa usually do not require an additional or supplementary appointment to teach Distance and Online Education (DOE) courses during the regular academic year. Faculty may teach DOE courses as part of their regular teaching load, or on an overload basis for extra compensation.

Instructors who are not regularly appointed faculty require an academic appointment to teach a DOE course. Appointments for adjunct or visiting faculty and for graduate teaching assistants are initiated by the sponsoring academic department and are approved by the appropriate collegiate and central administration officials. 

Compensation for teaching DOE courses varies by college and department. Faculty should contact their departments for compensation information or, alternately, may contact Assistant Dean Marlys Boote.
