VALDERRAMA, J.O.. A Model for the Rational Distribution of the Academic Work in a University. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.3, pp. 3-14. ISSN 0718-0764. doi: 10.4067/S0718-07642005000300002.
Some ideas and concepts about the work of a university professor are presented and a model to better distribute the academic work in a University is proposed. The model considers the usual activities of any Chilean university but can be adapted to any other university in Ibero America, in a simple way. The proposal has the main objective of quantifying in the best possible manner the work done by an academician so he or she can do in a proper and efficient way all the activities of a true university: teaching, research and community service, and not only teaching as erroneously considered in several Universities. The model has been randomly applied in several Iberoamerican Universities. All the academicians that have voluntarily collaborated in the tests have ratified the quality of the model and the accuracy of the results.
