Texas Tech’s Academic Workload Calculation does not include everything that is essential at our school. But it does include some that are not given at our school (and could/should be).
Texas A&M’s Workload Policy is also interesting.
A&M has better workload percentages for supervising TAs.
A&M is also very explicit on chairing versus membership on a thesis committee. We do these “free.”
We also don’t get any credit in the “Teaching Program Development.”
Both A&M and Tech offer course reductions for new TT faculty. Our school, as far as I can tell, has never even considered such an idea.
We could really use more than A&M offers for Coordination.
The one place we are better than either Tech or A&M is that teaching a grad class = 2 undergrad classes. (So it’s not 1.5.)
