Faculty Teaching Load, Community Colleges, Fall 1976.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
This report describes faculty teaching load for fall 1976 in the Hawaii community college system as measured in terms of average semester hours taught, average hours in contact with students, and class size. The data used in generating this report were based on students registered in regular credit programs in Hawaii community colleges. A general increase in the number of courses, classes, and semester hours was noted at all campuses, due in part to the greater number of courses scheduled on a modular (short-term) basis. Average class size was smaller at most of the colleges. Faculty teaching figures indicated: a generally heavier workload in terms of average semester hours taught by instructors compared to 1975; a generally heavier workload in terms of weekly instructor contact hours compared to 1974; a decline in productivity ratios for the system compared to 1975; and an unchanged faculty/student ratio of 1:23 for the system. Decline in productivity ratios and average class size are attributed to lighter credit loads carried by both full- and part-time students and the greater proportion of part-time students. Tabular data on courses, classes, semester hours, contact hours, class size by program, average semester and contact hours taught, productivity, and faculty/student ratios are included for each college and for the system.
