Lethbridge College instructors are adaptive and respectful, work collaboratively with their colleagues, and take an active role in the greater LC community. And, perhaps most importantly, LC instructors are passionate about what they do and seek opportunities for further innovation and professional growth. The Instructor Role Description (2019) sets out the following four professional commitments at Lethbridge College:
- Instructional responsibilities
- Institutional/discipline service
- Professional development
- Applied research
These responsibilities are reflected in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), with a focus on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes used in teaching at the college. The TEF affirms the influential impact instructors have on student success and on college improvement through their multifaceted roles as instructors, subject matter experts, advocates, collaborators, leaders, and mentors.
