Course Catalog

The Office of the Registrar compiles and publishes Courses of Instruction by gathering the information from the department (not individual instructors). All course changes must be brought to the attention of the department's catalog coordinator, Elizabeth 'Penny' Rew. Course information published in the catalog becomes the official basis for the Registrar's records; it affects classroom assignments, examination schedules, and the issuing of course lists and grade sheets.

Ordering Desk Copies
Examination, review, or desk copies of textbooks are provided upon request to instructors who wish to review a text for possible class adoption. You can usually request free Desk Copies via the publisher’s web site or by faxing or e-mailing the Desk Copy Request Form on Harvard stationary noting that the book has been adopted (desk copy) or is being considered for a course (exam or review copy).


Photocopying/Scanning
An access code is required to use the Department scan/photocopy machines. If you are in the Peabody Museum, go to the Archaeology Program Support Office (PM 58C) to obtain a code or if you are in Tozzer Anthropology Building, go to the Social Anthroplogy Support Office (Tozzer 205 A) for a code.



Audio/Visual Equipment
If equipment is required for classes held on a regular basis, or film/video projection is needed, instructors can reserve slide projectors or video equipment from Media & Technology Services
.

Course Web Sites
The Academic Technology Group supports technology-enhanced teaching and learning throughout Harvard FAS. Course websites are generally available at the end of the previous semester (i.e. Fall 2013 websites are available at the end of the Spring 2013 semester). You can access your website here:
Academic Techlology Group

Additionally, the Academic Technology Group provides assistance setting up your course website, developing new assignments with media, maps, or other technology elements. Our staff are available year-round to consult with faculty and teaching staff. Contact us at atg@fas.harvard.edu with your questions or to set up an appointment.

More Tools for Teaching and Learning
FAS courses can also use an expanding set of tools that are integrated into the Harvard environment, including Google Apps for Harvard, Wikis, Wordpress Blogs (beta), Qualtrics Surveys, and more. We will be inviting input throughout the year on our project to expand Harvard's Learning Management Ecosystem (LME) and to ultimately replace iSites. Learn more about the tools available at http://atg.fas.harvard.edu/, and about the LME project at http://lme.harvard.edu/.

Instructional Lunch Fund
Funds are available from the Office of Undergraduate Education to facilitate regular meetings over lunch (or breakfast, coffee, etc.) between instructors and their section leaders to discuss course-related matters. To be eligible for these funds, a minimum of six meetings must be held each term. Faculty may be reimbursed up to a maximum of $50 per person (including the course head as well as the section leaders) to cover 6-9 meetings per term. Faculty who meet at least 10 times during a term will be reimbursed up to a maximum of $75 per person per semester.

For all departmental courses, submit your receipts to Dotty Lukas in the Finance Office. For General Education courses, contact Nora Imirzian at 5-2563 for reimbursement. FAS Finance has determined that these reimbursements do not have to be submitted within the 60-day deadline: they are “reimbursements paid from an annual research or professional expense allocation”, so they fall under the IRS 3-1 Allowance Reimbursement Exception and may all be reimbursed at the end of the semester.

Please note the following:
• You are responsible for keeping track of the amount you are spending as the semester progresses. The funds are simply a contribution to meals, and may not always cover the full cost.
• These funds are to be used only for regular instructional staff meetings.
• Instructional lunch funds may not be used to purchase alcohol.
• Funding is not available for food during course meetings or sections.
