I have a label Teaching time that reflects the time-slot of the day or week a lecture would be taught on. For example, morning, afternoon, evening, weekend...

Is there any better (shorter) British English formulation to describe this?

    "class time", normally, I think. – Max Williams Aug 26 '16 at 8:33
  • We used to call them periods. "who's teaching first period English this year?" – Phil Sweet Aug 26 '16 at 13:30
  • Thanks @PhilSweet I think it makes sense but it clashes a bit with the notion of "study period" being often used as "from this day to day" or "week X to week Y"? (That's how we use period in our context) – Thibault D. Aug 26 '16 at 13:56

Classtime (or class-time, class time) — Wiktionary

noun 1. The time devoted to or prepared for a lesson at school or elsewhere; schooltime

Still most commonly encountered as two separate words, rather than in its hyphenate or compounded form.

  • Sorry for the drive-by comment on an ancient post, but for anyone who comes across this in the future: usually this term refers to time spent in class in general, rather than "the time of the [specific] class [period]". Certainly in the UK period is more common for OP's usage. – Will Crawford Mar 1 at 13:56
  • @WillCrawford Yeah, that's right. Would be nice if you could add that as an answer as well. :) – NVZ Mar 2 at 14:03
