Workload policy Spring 2014 Semester

Dear All

Workload policy was reviewed recently after 3 years of initial formulation. The review considered PEC recommendations and also consulted developed-world benchmarks such as Association of American University Professors (AAUP), given at Annex-A.

2. It was observed that NU policy was considerably relaxed in comparison. The unit based calculator of maximum 100 points was inadvertently diverting the high cost teaching resources to other non-instructional activities. It was noted that the NU policy was causing sub-optimal utilization of the most critical teaching resources which was having direct adverse consequences for teaching quality and University operating costs. The policy was also jeopardizing the supervision of non-HEC funded PhD students, MS/MBA students and final year projects of Bachelor degree students due to increased enrollment.

3. During the review, the intent was to update the NU policy to align with PEC recommendations which are given at Annex-A for future reference. However, it was felt that since that would be a considerable departure from our existing workload practice at the University, therefore they would require careful consideration and a phased roll out to ensure smooth transition. In the meanwhile, the following revisions in the workload policy have been approved by the Rector w.e.f Spring Semester 2013.

a) Principle of Workload Policy The University intends to periodically update the teaching workload requirements, to keep them aligned with established local and international benchmarks and best practices with a view to requirements of the University. b) Workload Policy Following is the workload policy. 1. Regular full time faculty members shall teach three courses per semester (6 courses per year). 2. Directors & HODs, in view of their administrative responsibilities, shall teach two courses per semester (four courses per year). 3. Paid extra teaching to full time faculty (excluding Lab Engineers and Lab Instructors) will be allowed only under special circumstances on case to case basis with prior approval of the Rector. 4. Course allocation policy should be worked out which is just, dynamic, transparent and equitable. The present monotonous policy of allocating the same courses year after year does not add to intellectual development nor does it enrich educational experience of students. Allocating elementary courses to PhDs also needs a reversal for assigning advanced and demanding courses to highly qualified faculty. 5. Faculty not taking full teaching workload shall have their salaries reduced proportionally. 6. Those who intend to get reduction in workload as per new research policy should get prior approval of the Rector with concrete plan and evidence of research potential and output. Those who do not get prior approval will have their salary reduced on pro-rata basis. 7. Workload calculator will stand suspended w.e.f. Spring Semester 2013. 8. One FYP Coordinator will be assigned 25 projects. The workload generated from 25 FYP’s shall be considered equivalent to the workload of one course. Each FYP group should normally comprise 2-3 students. In exceptional cases, a single student may be allowed FYP. (Approved by Rector on the recommendation of Directors meeting # 1/14 dated January 16, 2014) 9. Non-instructional activities which were earlier covered under workload calculator have been monetized as follows: Activity | Amount in Rs | i). PhD Thesis Supervision (aligned with HEC policy vide IOM No. 220/08 dated 1.11.2008 (Annex-B)). | Up to Rs 240,000 as per HEC rates as given below: Activity | Amount | After approval of Synopsis by BASR | Rs 50,000 | Upon completion of Thesis writing | Rs 50000 | After successful evaluation by two foreign evaluators | Rs 20,000 | Upon successful defense of PhD Thesis | Rs 50,000 | Rs. 30,000 /Rs. 15,000 on each publication in ISI /HEC Journal respectively | Rs 70,000 max. | One PhD thesis equals 5 points. Maximum work in this category may not exceed 25 points at a time. Combination of PhD and MS theses will not exceed 35 points. | ii). MS Thesis Supervision | After successful defense of MS Thesis | Rs 10,000 |
One MS thesis equals 2 points. Maximum work in this category may not exceed 10 points at a time. | iii). Under-graduate (BBA & BS) and MBA Projects Supervision | After award of final grade | Rs 6,000 |
Up to max of 5 projects at a time by a Teacher | iv). Administrative & coordination work. Engagement of faculty in administrative tasks will be discouraged. The University has separate staff for admin work. In case of shortage of staff, additional staff can be engaged. | Exceptional situations can be approved by the Rector on case to case basis. Prior approval of the Rector is essential. Appropriate administrative staff where ever needed may be recruited to relieve the concerned Directors and HODs from routine administrative work. | 10. Entitlement to non-instructional activities shall be subject to the prior approval of the Rector, which will be granted on a case to case basis. 11. Workload by campuses should be submitted on time before the start of semester. 12. Course allocation should be entered in NEON prior to start of semester. Information in NEON related to course-load should always be up-to-date. HODs and Managers (Academics) should be responsible for up-keep of latest information in NEON. 13. Campuses should strictly comply with and adhere to policy and procedures of workload. 4. This supersedes all earlier communications on the subject with immediate effect.

For instruction partly or entirely at the graduate level, a teaching load of nine hours per week.”3.3 This amounts to 60% teaching, 30% research and 10% service in American universities.

Fast Food

...In my opinion, fast food is bad food and unhealthy for humans. It is a combination of basic high content of some types of ingredients, and high consumption of fast food by people creates the health problems associated with fast food. First of all, fast food contains large amounts of fat. There are two types of fats like saturated fats and trans fats they can raise cholesterol and increase the risk of diseases. Because fats are very unhealthy, it’s a factor in rising obesity rates. Fats contain high calories and excessive amounts of fatty foods can cause many health problems. For example, excessive fats lead to weight gain, and people that carry excessive weight have greater risk of heart disease and diabetes. In additional, fast food contains a high content of salt. So too much of salt has in the diet a major risk factor for stroke, heart disease and kidney disease and excessive sodium that is not used by your body goes into your urine. This can increase the filtration load of your kidneys and increase the likelihood of crystal formation. Elevated blood pressure and blood volume are also extremely damaging to your kidneys. For example, " processed foods (including fast food) account for 77% of the sodium we eat”. Finally, fast food contains little nutritional value. Because fast food do not achieve balance in the diet, it's the content on excess of salt, sugar and fat. Fast food in general is very low in vitamins, proteins and minerals.

Fast Is Not Free

...Fast is not free Fast speed in fashion is a defining characteristic of today’s textile and clothing industry. It’s about fast in production – tracking sales with electronic tills and just-in-time manufacturing which has now made it possible to turn a sample or design sketch into a finished product in as little as 12 days; and fast in consumption – a recent report revealed that people are buying one third more garments than four years ago fuelled by the rise and rise of ‘value’ retailers and supermarkets like Primark and Matalan. Yet super cheap, ‘value’ or fast fashion garments are no quicker to make or consume than any other garment. The fibre takes the same amount of time to grow regardless of a product’s speed to market (in the case of cotton, around a year). Likewise the fibre takes the same amount of time to be spun, knitted or woven, cleaned, bleached, dyed, printed, cut and sewn; and the activity of going shopping and laundering the garment takes the same amount of time regardless of how speedily a design makes it from catwalk to high street retailer. Fast fashion is not really about speed; it is about selling more goods and making more money. Time is just one of the factors of production along with labour, capital and natural resources that get juggled and squeezed in the pursuit of maximum profits. But fast is not free. Short lead times and cheap garments are only made possible by the exploitation of labour and natural resources. Yet it doesn’t have to be this way...

...Introduction Fast fashion is no long a strange word for people. Originally, only traditional fashion exists in fashion industry. But then another trend, which researchers called it as “Fast Fashion”, rose up since 1990s. First of all, it’s necessary to know the difference between the traditional fashion and fast fashion. Traditional fashion always has two seasonal collections which are introduced to consumer market. The price of products is relatively higher than fast fashioned products. According to the article “What is Fast Fashion” from Sarah-Jane Rowland, who has written about fashion for 8 years, the definition is “The ephemeral nature of fashion ensures that what is in one minute is passé the next. Fast fashion, capitalizes on this need to keep pace with constantly changing trends by providing high fashion clothing at a low price point.” (What is Fast Fashion) We see that fast fashion introduces lots of new designs to people with a low price in each short period. But, the question is does fast fashion really provide benefits for people? The answer is no. In my research, I am going to analyze why fast fashion actually brings out bad impacts, and those bad impacts are related to money cost, immorality, and damage for natural environment. The reason that I choose the topic is because of its importance. Clothing industry is related to people’s daily life. Via the research, people may recognize what the real value this trend is since everyone has a value position in mind. ...

Fast food is usually packed with fat, sugar and salt which make it so unhealthy. There are many different reasons people go to fast food restaurants rather than eating at home. People eat at fast food restaurant because it is convenient, cheap, tasty and quick. We no longer live in the good old days when women would stay home to cook, clean, and take care of the kids. Women have invaded the work industry by taking over jobs that in the past only men would have, and now share those jobs with men. Nowadays, most of the women are really busy to go for grocery shopping, come back home, unpack the food, and then cook it; so they prefer to go to fast food restaurant like McDonald’s. Many families are choosing fast food restaurants instead of fancy restaurants in this bad economy situation, because fancy restaurants charge much more money than fast food and people would rather eat at those places with family only on special occasions. However parents know that the fast food doesn’t have good nutrition balance for their children.
