Faculty Activity Analysis in the Universidad Tecnica Del Estado Campuses.
An analysis of academic activities of college faculty at the eight campuses of Chile's Universidad Tecnica del Estado was conducted. Activities were grouped into seven categories: direct teaching, indirect teaching, research, community services, faculty development, academic administration, and other activities. Following the narrative descriptions of data collection and findings are extensive statistical tables which make up the bulk of the document. These concern: the number of faculty per department, courses taught by each faculty member, the number of teaching contact hours per week taught by each faculty, the workload distribution related to activities other than direct teaching, and the number of faculty engaged in faculty development programs and the courses taught by each participating faculty member. Matrix tables show the total weekly hours all faculty members devote to each type of activity, grouped by department and campus. Tables also show: the proportion of hours faculty devote to other activities per each hour devoted to direct teaching; the total number of teaching hours required for each academic department; the weekly teaching load per faculty member by academic department and campus; department majors, as well as instruction for nonmajors; and student-faculty ratios by departments and campuses.
