Read me first in advance of the first day of class

Here is some essential instructor information: 

Media / Lectern Keys are available for pick up at the front desk (weekdays 9-5). You can also pick them up at the Instructor Pre-quarter Meeting. You may keep the keys as long as you are teaching with us at least one course per year.  Keys need to be returned within one week of your employment termination. Please note: there is a $100  penalty for a lost or unreturned key.

A Lectern Login is needed to access the lectern computer in our classrooms. This is not to be confused with your UCSBNet ID (see below). Your Lectern User ID is either in the format first name.last name (i.e., john.smith) or initial of your first name and last name (i.e., jsmith). If you do not remember your User ID, please email If you do not remember your password, you will need to reset it in person by visiting the Instructional Development office in Kerr Hall 1160 (open weekdays 8 AM - 5 PM). Note that this password cannot be reset remotely. 

UCSBNet ID: is required to access wireless internet in the classroom, Gauchospace and other essential services. If you don't have a UCSBNetID, please follow these instructions. If you already have a UCSBBNetID and don't remember your password, follow these steps to reset it.

Kerr Hall Classroom Support: we hold onboarding sessions before every quarter for new instructors and instructors needing a quick refresh on using classroom media and lecterns. For the evening classes, student workers will be available 15 minutes before your class begins for incidental help, but NOT for training purposes.

Class Rosters: Instructors are responsible for viewing/printing their own class roster.  This roster can be found in the Instructor Portal. You will have access to your class list starting 21 days prior to the start date. If a student attends your course and does NOT appear on your class list, please email the student’s name along with your course name to 

Photocopying: we strongly discourage photocopying, and prefer that Gauchospace, our online Learning Management System, be used for class assignments and other documents.  If you need to photocopy tests and quizzes, or the syllabus for the first day of the class you are welcome to stop by to use our facility and use our copy machine. Unfortunately, we will NOT be able to provide photocopying services. 

Course Evaluations Starting F19, we will be mimicking UCSB’s evaluation procedure.  One of PaCE staff members will visit your classroom for 10 minutes during one of the last classes of your course. You will be warned before the visit. You will leave the classroom for 10-15 minutes so the students may complete the online survey in the presence of a PaCE staff member.  The class will resume after students finish their evaluations and the PaCE member leaves. 

Contact Information: you have received an email with contact information to use in case of an emergency, (for example, a building is locked or a student worker did not show up for your class when you need help). Please keep that communication for your records, or mail to be reminded. 

Door  Keys: We will open doors to Kerr Hall and classrooms prior to your class.   If you are the last instructor to leave, please shut the door to hallway as you leave.   As an FYI: We have two portable lockboxes that contain two spare keys to the Kerr Hall classrooms.  These are located in the hallway on the outside lobby door and the outside door to 2140.  

Each key will open the 2166 lobby, 2166A, 2166B and 2140 classroom doors and has a label with contact information and instruction to return key to lock box when done. If you don’t remember the code, mail to be reminded.
