An Investigation and Evaluation of Faculty Workloads, with Specific Emphasis upon the Physical Education Departments of Selected Small Liberal Arts Institutions of Higher Learning.
Stier, William F., Jr.
It is the thesis of this paper that many factors must be taken into consideration to determine faculty workloads and that the weights placed upon the various factors are of importance equal to the actual factors themselves. The first section reviews available literature on faculty workloads, and lists: (1) some of the questions asked in these investigations; (2) time spent by 75 faculty members at Southern Illinois University at 12 different activities related to their work; and (3) 19 factors that should be considered in determining faculty workload. The second section considers the purpose and results of a questionnaire that was sent to directors of physical education departments at 15 small 4-year liberal arts colleges in the Midwest. Ten responded to questions concerning: (1) policy regulating faculty workload; (2) factors involved in determining faculty workload; (3) compensation received for coaching responsibilities; (4) average hours of teaching load; (5) average time spent by department chairman in various duties; (6) factors considered a part of an individual physical education faculty member's total responsibility that are assumed in addition to regular teaching assignments, along with the compensation for these responsibilities.
