The School of Meteorology employs a number of instructors, some of whom are professors, adjuncts, TAs, full-time instructors, etc. It is our goal to provide those instructors with a succinct list of resources; if you have something you would like to see added, please use the contact link to send a note to our site admin!
Many questions instructors may receive about absence policies, military leave, final exam scheduling, etc. are covered in the OU Faculty handbook. The Faculty handbook should be considered an important repository of information not just for the full-time faculty member, but for any instructor on the OU campus: https://apps.hr.ou.edu/facultyhandbook/

The graduate college provides support to many members of the university community. Since TAs serve a double role as both student and instructor, they will find this resource particularly helpful: http://www.ou.edu/gradweb.html
The American Meteorological Society has some great resources for educators. Check them out here: https://www.ametsoc.org/ams/index.cfm/education-careers/education-program/undergraduate-faculty/
Canvas is relatively new to the OU campus, and many users are still a little unsure about how to perform certain functions within it. The Canvas website has a number of helpful articles and FAQs – we’ve linked two very common ones below.
