As you know, yesterday HEQCO released a new research report on “faculty productivity.” The paper is, frankly, awful, and we have published a response in the Globe and Mail. It can be read here: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/education/professors-teaching-less-thats-measuring-the-wrong-thing/article17465987/
Kate Lawson has also been quoted in several stories on this issue, including in the Toronto Star (http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2014/03/11/ontario_professors_should_have_to_teach_more_courses_reports_say.html) and Maclean’s (http://www.macleans.ca/education/university/teaching-load/).
We will continue to monitor this issue going forward, and will continue to push back against HEQCO.
