Most Continuing Education/part-time study centres will give you a relatively free-reign to design and assemble the curriculum for your course. When it comes to the resources that an institution can offer to you as a tutor, this will depend on the organisation. Some institutions will offer you the use of Power Point to present your classes, whilst other places will just offer a slide projector, an overhead projector and a white board.
If you use slides you will be expected to provide them yourself. Likewise if you are using PowerPoint, you will need to have access to a resource that can provide you with visual images. Generally speaking, a department will usually offer to do any photocopying for you. If you are teaching an accredited course you will have a greater choice of resources than if not. But the essential core data, images, plans or maps, you will need to provide yourself. The resources the department will have available, or whether they will pay you for preparation time, will vary between every institution.
Availability of resources
If you have access to your own images and information, this is going to be your best resource. As already, stated most institutions may not be able to assist you in this matter. There are a number of online resources that may be useful however:
The Subject Centre for History, Classics and Archaeology, has a dedicated Archaeology Image Bank. Images placed here are available, free of charge for educational non-profit use, and include sites, excavations, artefacts and buildings (images of Stonehenge, Maiden Castle and the Rilaton Cup are all examples of images within the archive). You should also feel free to donate your own images for others to share.
