Academic workload planning: theory into practice

December 2019

The TRAC Development Group published a study on the implementation of workload planning in 2011.

Today we have published a new report which reassesses the advice given in that study, and provides further guidance on how workload planning is being implemented across a growing number of institutions and how it can be used as an alternative to other time allocation methods used for TRAC.

There is a commonly held view that the data from workload planning on the use of academic staff time will be more reliable than that other methods that are currently used in TRAC. The report therefore identifies how the requirements for using workload planning in TRAC can be fulfilled, in addition to providing advice and ‘top tips’ for implementing workload planning and planning to be TRAC compliant.
