Costs and Potential Economies.
Bottomley, J. A.; And Others
The University of Bradford was designated as the target for research directed toward identifying potential economies in the teaching of students under alternative sets of assumptions, in order that action may be taken to secure a more economic use of resources in the higher education sector. Part one looks generally at the nature of university costs from an economists viewpoint. In part two, cost is treated as an allocation of past expenditures. Part three of the report describes a method of building up the academic staff requirements for a course on the basis of the amount of teaching involved in it. In part four, the utilization of teaching accommodation is studied. Part five is concerned with a third major item of expense - the factors affecting the demand for technical staff. In part six, cost is studied in relation to specific academic development proposals. Part seven deals with the role of computerized models in university planning. Part eight investigates existing courses in an attempt to discover whether economics of scale already exist in practice. In part nine, the major potential economics identified in the report are summarized. Appendices of related material are included. (MJM)
