Teach Online? Take the Survey of Online Working Conditions
If you are currently teaching online at a college or university, I please consider participating in this important survey which is focused on collecting data about faculty working conditions in the online environment.
Survey of Online Working Conditions
For the Coalition on Contingent Academic Labor (COCAL X) and the OnLine Teaching Working Group, UALE, this survey is for anyone who is teaching on line in colleges or universities. We are trying to collect a range of working conditions -- how much people get paid, how many hours they work, whether they have union representation, how many students they have in a class, etc. When we have collected enough responses to get a sense of what's out there, we will categorize the examples as "good," "bad" and "ugly," in an attempt to set some kind of standard of what decent working conditions for on line teachers might look like.
