The Collective Bargaining Agreement (posted 07/01/2013) contains the following section:
ONLINE OVERLOAD COMPENSATION
Online instruction is a recognized category of instruction and may be assigned as faculty workload in conformity with Article 11.3. When online instruction is conducted as an overload, instruction shall be compensated based on S-contract rates (Appendix A) on the condition that a threshold enrollment specified by the appropriate dean is reached. Overload courses may, at the discretion of the dean, be compensated with fractional S-contracts should enrollment be below the specified threshold. The fraction of the S-contract amount will be the actual enrollment as a fraction of threshold – e.g., enrollment of 12 when the threshold is 20, would lead to 60% of an S-contract. Colleges will provide the specific thresholds for enrollment annually, and at least six months in advance of the start of the course.
The new CBA requires the College of Education and Human Development to specify the threshold enrollment of undergrads and graduate students at which a full S-contract will be paid to faculty for overload teaching done online in 2014 and beyond. If enrollment does not reach the threshold, fractional S-contracts can be paid to faculty.
The College of Education and Human Development adopted an undergraduate threshold enrollment of 25, and a graduate threshold enrollment of 15.
