Mind the Gap: Getting Actionable Data on Teaching Activities and Costs

Download Presentation »

    The session addresses gaps in colleges’ and universities’’ knowledge about teaching and what to do about them. We will explore how data already available in campus systems can be used to describe teaching activities and estimate teaching cost at the level of courses, degree programs, departments, schools, and campuses. How to work with academic officers to balance these financial results with academic mission considerations is a secondary theme. The presentation includes results from a pilot test and early implementations of the teaching activities and costing model in the United States and Australia. It concludes with a roadmap for the way forward: how the model can be implemented quickly, in a way that facilitates the sharing of benchmark data among campuses.
