Langara uses a sectional rate to allocate instructional costs to departments. Each year, a workload section plan is produced by the Departments/Divisions/Deans and approved by the Provost and Vice President, Academics and Students. The plan is entered into our system of record (Banner Student) and becomes the basis of the Instructional Labour budget. Each term, instructional Departments and Division Chairs confirm the accuracy of the information in Banner; instructional labour costs are then allocated accordingly.
