>I am trying to get information on how other schools calculate teaching
>loads in the sciences. Specifically, I'd like to know:
> 1. What is your teaching load per semester?
At Pembroke State University, small liberal arts - heavy science
majors - 3000 students, we are expected to teach 12 hours per
semester. Labs are counted as 1 hour even though as you know they
last 2-3 hours not counting prep time.
> 3. Do you have TA's?
We have no TAs as we have no graduate program and no formalized
method for hiring/training undergraduate teaching assistants. I am
the only person in my department who utilizes undergraduates to help
with lab set-up (lots of hassle!)
> 4. Are the Sciences treated like the Liberal Arts with respect
> to teaching loads? Treated identically.
Thanks for the opportunity to input. Shocking isn't it!
