Decoding the SWF

The SWF (“swiff“, stands for Standard Workload Formula), is a document that is used to calculate workload (Article 11 of the Collective Agreement) for full-time teaching faculty. SWFs are usually given out once per term, 6 weeks prior to the start of the term. Revised SWFs may be issued in certain circumstances, and is usually assessed on a case-by-case basis.
