Faculty Resources

Find useful information for MIP faculty below.


These resources will used to create, modify, and schedule courses for the 2018-19 Academic Year.  Please note that all course information must be submitted to the Registrar's Office by the relevant deadlines posted below.  Also, of particular note is the MIP Instructor Handbook which contains information for new instructors as well as details on things like course policies,  the syllabus, exams, and student privacy and support resources.  
Please note that course units are particularly important since they cannot be changed once a given quarter opens for enrollment (October 28, 2018, for Winter Quarter; February 10, 2019, for Spring Quarter).
If you need the password to access the MIP Instructor Handbook and/or have questions, please contact Jonathan Achter (650.725.9155) or Meghan Moura (650.725.9075) in the program office.

Course Information Forms for Instructors

Please use one of the following forms to submit details on your course.  Since the master's program will have a redesigned curriculum for AY2018-19, we ask that all instructors submit a form for each course s/he will be teaching.  If your course is team-taught, please identify one lead instructor to serve as the point person. If easier, please use the form as a guide and submit the details via email to Jonathan Achter.
