6. Effort Reporting

Allen Edmunds spoke about effort reporting and the process that faculty are required to do by the federal government. The discussion included information about teaching assignments (more detailed) and campus reporting being different. These two reportings won’t necessarily match. It will be listed as 90/10 unless faculty are practicing. The 90% teaching is broken it down into what is, clinical/didactic/education release/etc. and there are 14 categories that the campus is trying to track. The variable part-timers are going to have to start doing this also now and whey they are signing timesheets they are also certifying time.
