Instructor Qualifications • Primary instructor: Eligible faculty are classified as clinical full or associate professor, or full, associate or assistant professor • Check StanfordWho • Any questions about eligibility, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for verification • If instructor does not meet eligibility they can be listed as a secondary instructor, and require a primary instructor to be listed as a sponsor

Classroom Scheduling: Department Controlled Rooms • If using own department’s space or another department’s space, ensure you have the proper internal approval (if necessary) • Add the room to CPS form so that Explore Courses is updated • If room not populating, add it to the NOTES section in CPS
Classroom Scheduling: School of Medicine Rooms • Most School of Medicine courses meet in SoM classrooms reserved through the School’s Learning Spaces Scheduling Office, aka “Medscheduler” • Classroom and resource information can be found at: http://medscheduler.stanford.edu (see link to “Annual Scheduling Resources”) • All course room and resource reservations should be centrally requested by the Department Course Administrator. Requests from other administrators, faculty, TAs, etc. run the risk of causing double-booking or oversight of important details. • Deadline to submit final version is 5:00pm on Monday, June 24, 2019. • Questions? Email email@example.com (preferred) or call 650-723-6952 before the Priority Deadline.
Classroom Scheduling: School of Medicine Rooms • SoM course room and resource requests will be submitted in the same method as last year -- via an online Smartsheet form. • Course Smartsheets were shared with Curriculum Administrators the first week of April. Notify firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP if you did not receive yours. • Be sure to SAVE your Smartsheet form as you go. After saving and closing, you can log back in and continue to make changes until the June 24 submission deadline. • One row per meeting pattern. • List ACTUAL Start Date and End Date. Do not include dates during Dead Week and Finals Week if there is no class meeting scheduled. • For a course that immediately follows a related course and you wish to schedule in the same classroom, note that on the request form. Similarly, for a course that continues from one quarter to the next. There is no guarantee we can accommodate the request for consistency but we will do our best.
Classroom Scheduling: School of Medicine Rooms IMPORTANT REMINDERS: • Be sure that the course headcount in Smartsheet matches the MAX headcount in PeopleSoft. Failure to do so may result in too small of a classroom being assigned. • Consistency in LKSC classrooms is difficult due to breakout sessions for required courses. You may have better results if you request non-LKSC. • Courses that adhere to the University Class Meeting Pattern Grid receive higher priority than courses that do not. • We will automatically schedule 5 minutes setup and 5 minutes takedown for all courses. The “Comments” field in the form can be used for requesting additional setup/takedown time; this will bump your course to a lower scheduling priority. • Once confirmations have been received, forward them immediately to course directors for review. Make sure they understand there is a one-week period where changes can be made without losing priority. After that, we will begin scheduling other non-academic activities and courses will lose scheduling priority.
Classroom Scheduling: Main Campus Rooms • For undergraduate or graduate courses requesting a room on main campus, enter “General Assignment Room” in CLSS forms before July 12. • Include the desired room characteristics for scheduling optimization • Include reason for on-campus request in comments (***required) • Without comment room will not be forwarded to RO for scheduling • On-campus rooms are not guaranteed and may be subject to change • University Registrar’s Office will schedule a room for Autumn course(s) week of July 15th • Winter week of October 7th • Spring week of January 20th • Summer week of March 23rd
Cancelling Courses • Submit a PS webform updating course attributes • If course is offered for one quarter, change to NOTTHIS; if course is offered for multiple quarters, remove quarter of cancellation • Include “course cancellation” in the special instructions • Update class status to “stop further enrollment” in CPS • Class cannot be cancelled with ANY enrollment • If no enrollment, update to “cancelled”
Cancelling Courses • Cancel room reservation for Med rooms through Med Scheduler website • With submission of PS webform, I will email the class roster of currently enrolled students • Students must be notified by the department and/or instructor of cancellation so that enrollment can be adjusted, cc email@example.com on notifications, please include deadline to drop (1 week from notification) • I will cancel the course on the established deadline and will email any remaining students that they have been dropped with the course administrator cc’d • Cancel room reservation for Med rooms through Med Scheduler website
