Workshop on business school workload models

Tuesday 15 October

Workload models are a major preoccupation in higher education and present an ongoing challenge for business school leaders and other senior staff. Those responsible for the strategy and the practicalities of drawing up, reviewing and implementing workload models, together with those heading annual discussions with staff in agreeing their individual workload models, will be only too aware that this can be a contentious issue.

This workshop will explore a number of different workload models used by business schools and draw on a wide range of examples of introducing, refining and getting buy-in to those models. Focusing on the advantages and drawbacks workload models can bring, participants will learn from the wealth of detailed case studies offered by our speakers and through sharing experiences with fellow attendees in structured discussions.

Workshop chair: Professor Baback Yazdani, Dean of Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University

Other speakers will include:

  • Professor Zoe Radnor, Vice-President (Strategy and Planning; Equality, Diversity and Inclusion), Professor of Service Operations Management, City, University of London;
  • Professor Claire Leitch, Professor of Entrepreneurial Leadership, Associate Dean (Staffing), Lancaster University Management School;
  • Professor David Paton, Associate Dean for Faculty and Resources, Nottingham University Business School
