“Teaching for extra compensation” is often referred to as “overload teaching.”  “Overload teaching” refers to faculty members teaching academic courses over and above their regular (“on-load”) course assignments.  UI staff members may also teach as adjunct faculty over and above the assigned duties for which their base salary is paid.  The 17.17(6) Extra Compensation for Teaching Academic Courses policy is designed to ensure that neither the quality of instruction nor the quality of effort toward primary employment obligations is diminished when assuming these additional responsibilities.
