Part TIme Professor

Current Employee - Professor in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
Current Employee - Professor in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I have been working at University of Ottawa part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good facilities for teaching, including WiFI and wired classroom. Good student body, that seems engaged.

Cons

The administration seems to take professors, especially part-time professors for granted. They expect the part-time professors to do much organization and scheduling and do not seem to respect that these individuals have full-time jobs. As a whole, the administration seems to favour French as the language of choice so English speaking profs seem at a disadvantage. The reliance on web based email is also frustrating.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at University of Ottawa full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Centrally located, Decent physical facilities, opportunity to learn English or French as a second language

    Cons

    Biligualism acts as an obstacle for professional growth. Most gatekeeper staff is French and despite their ability to help everyone, response time is slower if you can't communicate with them in French.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the need for bilingualism on a case-by-case basis.
