Note: Standard load of 15 hours per quarter corresponds to full-time 10 week effort.
Of this, 80% is typically assigned to instruction (12 hours).
Rule of thumb: One contact hour approximately equals 30 hours of preparation time, class time, office hours, and grading time during given quarter, or three hours per week.
