When we first started working in academia, we were confused about workload measurement in EFTSLs. It took us a while to figure out the effective full-time student load for an hour-long lecture to 150 people was the same as six hour-long tutorials. How absurd! So, no wonder we were feeling under the pump.
Times have changed, and most university academic staff Agreements have a cap on the total number of hours to be worked in a year. We recognise workload models vary within each institution, and from one discipline to the next. Their formation can be interesting, benefitting from circumstances where staff are involved in determining the time it takes for specific tasks.
