MADISON, Wis. (AP) - University of Wisconsin System regents have adopted a policy calling for tracking faculty teaching loads.
The Republican-authored state budget requires the regents to develop the policy. The budget ties state aid to UW schools based in part on how they stack up against each other in instructional time.
The Board of Regents approved a broad policy to satisfy the mandate Thursday at UW-Madison. State public schools Superintendent Tony Evers cast the only dissenting vote. Evers, a Democrat, is running against Republican Gov. Scott Walker next year.
The policy calls for schools to monitor teaching loads, require faculty members to report teaching hours to system administrators and reward faculty for teaching more than the standard academic load for their campus.
Individual chancellors will decide how to meet those requirements.
