Examining Workload Models in Online and Blended Teaching
Tynan, Belinda; Ryan, Yoni; Lamont-Mills, Andrea
British Journal of Educational Technology, v46 n1 p5-15 Jan 2015
Over the past decade, most Australian universities have moved increasingly towards "blended" and online course delivery for both undergraduate and graduate programs. In almost all cases, elements of online teaching are part of routine teaching loads. Yet detailed and accurate workload data associated with "e-teaching" are not readily available. A search of the international literature indicated that there is limited rigorous literature and research that points to the actual effects on workload in online and blended higher education teaching environments. This paper reports on a research project in four Australian universities, and the perceptions of a representative group of staff who perceived that e-teaching had increased their "teaching time" workload, and that Workload Allocation Models (WAMs) did not take account of contemporary teaching modalities.
