Last spring I did some teaching at a university. It was my first time. It was a temporary position. I was there 1 semester only. I was paid by the hour.
A couple of things caught my eye about the arrangement:
They only paid for the time I spent teaching in a scheduled group setting.
They did not pay for prep time.
By prep time, I mean the time I spent getting ready for a particular class. I saw this term being used elsewhere on SE Academia, not sure how common it is...
In what countries / universities / contexts is it common to not pay teachers for the time they spend preparing a lecture?
FWIW I was teaching an undergraduate media studies course at a private creative industries-type university in South America.
