One of the most exciting tasks for a course coordinator is setting up the future semester schedules. This will require you to work with your department to find the times and rooms for your courses. As the coordinator, you have the privilege of finding, interviewing, and offering a contract to new associate faculty as well as scheduling full-time faculty within your department. Working with your department chair, you will have the opportunity to develop a vision for your gateway course. It will be that vision that will help drive your decisions for hiring, curriculum, and team building.
