Abstract

Faculty in higher education have found themselves with more classes, more students, and overall less time and methods for saving time. Therefore, using time more efficiently has become necessary to accomplish our goals. Below are strategies that faculty can use to effectively allocate time, maximize output for students, and minimize time spent revising or creating course materials throughout the semester or academic year. Each of these recommendations require quite a bit of work up front, but the return on investment can be valuable during the busy semester and academic year.
