We are developing a database driven web interface system for the University's Workload Allocation Modelling system to enable the collection and reporting of academic workload.

The system enables subject group leaders and other managers to record and report on the workload of academics, their subject groups, departments, faculties and modules at various levels of granularity as needed for TRAC reporting and internal management. This system is designed to be highly usable with a minimum of effort to support this infrequent but necessary data management task. This stage was successfully rolled out for the 2012/13 recording session.

Supporting the workload planning aspects of subject group leaders and others is the focus of the second stage of this project. This involves refinement of the recording system to provide a seamless and consistent environment, further enabling the transfer of planned subject group workloads into recorded workloads where appropriate. Practical visual techniques will be used to enhance user's understanding of the workload across subject groups or departments and the impact of any changes to modules, staff or other aspects.
Workload Allocation Modelling Management is a Other Non Commercial Projects project funded by Edinburgh Napier University. Carried out in collaboration with and others. For further information please refer to
