Cross-Institutional Exploratory of Faculty Compensation Models to IncentivizeDistance Learning ParticipationAbstract:In higher education, courses and curriculum are purportedly the intellectual property of theacademic departments. Academic departments, then, provide instructors or faculty to teach. Theassignment of faculty to teach in distance-based programs directly implies there needs to existsome level of financial incentive for the home department of those faculty, as well as directincentive to the faculty who are involved in teaching. After all expenses are accounted for, then,what model for faculty compensation provides the greatest level of incentive to participate inprofessional studies? Building on previous scholarship and over a year of additional research,this paper focuses on the impact of numerous employed faculty compensation models acrossmultiple institutions of higher education.A survey of these many institutions of higher learning, regarding their compensation strategy foradjunct faculty, was collected and compiled. This presentation will share the results of thiscross-institution study and encourage input from attendees on their experience with these andother methods/practices.
