Online instructors represent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the mission of BYU-Idaho and BYU-Pathway Worldwide. They guide students to become capable disciple leaders in their personal and professional lives.
Time & Compensation
Online instructors spend roughly 10 hours per week in a typical course. Instructors with a master's degree or higher will be compensated at a rate of $1,050 per credit and instructors with a bachelor's degree will receive $950 per credit.
Online curriculum is pre-developed by BYU-Idaho faculty and instructional designers. Within the framework of this curriculum, online instructors create an inviting, student-focused, learning environment that fosters learning by study and by faith. Typically instructors do not do live video lectures.
