  3. 3. Learning Programs Development All teachers have an allocation of 0.2 EFT (i.e. 20% of their employment time fraction) for the development of new learning materials as well as maintaining currency and effectiveness of existing learning materials and uploading to Janison. New learning materials will be developed in teams. All teachers are expected to have primary responsibility for at least one course of study in which they will have a teaching allotment. For the purpose of the workload index, in addition to course development, teachers may be assigned maintenance for: one course in its first year, or one course that requires annual updating with contemporary materials and examples, or up to two courses which are in their second or subsequent year. A course is defined as equivalent to a year’s work. A ‘course’ for maintenance may therefore be two semester long units. DECV Workload Index

  16. 18. In the past distance education often achieved very good communication between teacher and student. What has changed is the ability to facilitate learning communities at a distance. The shift is not trivial. The traditional CoI approach emphasises a Philosophical modesty on the part of the teacher.
