The primary function of the Didactic Instructor can be broken into 3 categories – preparation for class, classroom management, and educational administrative tasks. Within these categories it needs to be highlighted that the instructor's job is to ensure students are properly prepared to take each test or examination, prepare in advance, each day's instructional plan and any necessary supporting classroom materials. Course delivery may be residential or distance education, thus the Didactic Instructor must be familiar with both delivery methods.
Student management also includes involvement to ensure satisfactory academic progress is being maintained (as well as the assignment of appropriate tutoring support) and that student marks, attendance, remediation documentation, and other reprimands are all kept up to date. Instructor evaluation, educational in-service plans, evaluations (student and managerial), goal setting, and reprimands are also kept up to date. It is important that the Didactic Instructor has an understanding of how to keep students motivated while ensuring the expected standards of the profession, through appropriate counseling.
