Summary

Teaching load depends on many variables, however most colleges define it strictly in terms of contact or credit hours. The failure to give weight to variables such as number of preparations, number of students served, committee and other noninstructional assignments is usually due to the lack of a formula that will quantify the effects of these variables. Virginia Western Community College has developed two formulas for quantifying faculty workloads. One was developed by a faculty committee and the other by the Institutional Research Office. The guidelines and formulas for both models are presented, and a comparison of the formulas is conducted using actual samples of faculty workloads. Both formulas were judged as being sufficiently easy to apply, but often the workload classification of a faculty member would depend upon which formula was used. Further study to determine the feasibility of the formulas is recommended. Sample workload calculations for thirty faculty members from various departments are appended. (Author/AH)
