How well do we:
1) utilize our classroom space?
2) utilize the seats within those
classrooms?

Should TRU expand
its class sizes?
Student Opinion on Small Class Sizes
• National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
– Student Faculty Interaction
– Intimate Environment
• Canadian University Report (CUR)
– Received A’s for the past 5 years
– TRU’s Best Kept Secrets
Are classes scheduled

week?

Given current space
constraints, how
much room is there
for growth at TRU?
Projection of FTE Growth
1 FTE = 15 seat hours per week
Available FTEs = Total Seat Hours Per Week Available
15 Seat Hours Per Week

FTE growth calculations based on non-dedicated classrooms only
Time used by the Ad-Hoc bookings and Continuing Education bookings have been
taken into consideration when calculating FTE growth based on classroom
utilization
Ad-Hoc bookings are classroom bookings that are not regularly scheduled
Scenario 1: the 8-hour day
TRU could grow 1,790 FTEs without
expanding current space
This number is based on the following assumptions:
1.
All non-dedicated classrooms reach at least a 75% utilization rate
301 FTEs
2.
We reach 85% seat occupancy within booked classrooms
1,489 FTEs
3.
We achieve the above goals for the entire 8-hour day
Scenario 2: the 13-hour day
TRU could grow 3,379 FTEs without
expanding current space
This number is based on the following assumptions:
1. All non-dedicated classrooms reach at least a 75% utilization rate
1,599 FTEs
2. We reach 85% seat occupancy within booked classrooms
1,780 FTEs
3. We achieve the above goals for the entire 13-hour day
Projection of FTE Growth
To actually be able to grow this many
FTEs, the following must occur:
1. TRU must increase the utilization of classrooms during the
evenings
2. TRU must increase the utilization of classrooms on Fridays
3. Close the gap between classroom size and course enrolment
4. Consider a software assisted scheduling process that would
allow for optimization of instructional space
Proposed Policy Baseline
•26% of TRU’s courses that were scheduled in
Fall 2011 meet the newly proposed scheduling
policy
•Classes scheduled M/W/F lasting 1 hr
•Classes scheduled T/Th lasting 1.5 hrs
•Classes scheduled M-F after 2:30pm
lasting 3 hrs
Proposed Policy Baseline
Distribution of classes by department
scheduled during peak times
(8:30am to 2:30pm)
