2 Academic Workload Model Framework 2006 review => Lack of consistency across the University SDVC Margaret Seares targets: Teaching: 45% - 55%; (36 – 44%) Research:35% - 45%; (28 – 36%) Service: 5% - 15%. (4 – 12%) Consultancy: up to 20%

3 Academic Workload Model Framework Undergraduate teaching – both student and teaching administration hours International teaching load (where staff don’t receive additional loadings) Postgraduate supervision (Research) Research Service within, and external to UWA

4 Academic Workload Model Model parameters Income based activity model FFM $ income drivers – 72% –Coursework teaching: Local + international (38%) –Research Inputs: Research $, HDR enrolments (17%) –Research Outputs: HDR Completions, Publications, Staff Dist (17%) Non-FFM $ income drivers – 28% –Local Full Fee Coursework enrolments (1%) –Infrastructure distribution (4%) –Interest earnings (1%) –External support (22%)

5 Academic Workload Model Model parameters Income based activity model TEACHING (52.5%) –FFM Coursework teaching: (38%) –Local Full Fee Coursework enrolments (1%) –Infrastructure distribution (2%, 1/2 of total) –Interest earnings (0.5%, 1/2 of total) –External support (11%, 1/2 of total) RESEARCH (47.5%) –FFM Research Inputs: Research $, HDR enrolments (17%) –FFM Research Outputs: HDR Completions, Publications, Staff Dist (17%) –Infrastructure distribution (2%, 1/2 of total) –Interest earnings (0.5%, 1/2 of total) –External support (11%, 1/2 of total)
