Features

Yes, TAMS simplifies the work of teaching assignments. But it does so much more…

Faculty
Satisfaction

TAMS has a variety of tools that will help increase faculty satisfaction starting with the ability to collect teaching preferences.

In addition, faculty have the ability to log into TAMS to see information administrators use to make available including workload, teaching assignments, preferences, and more.

Easy To Explain
Faculty Workload

Faculty want to know that their time is being used fairly, both in relation to their contract and other faculty members. This can be difficult to explain if you have to refer to multiple spreadsheets potentially being managed by different people.

TAMS makes it easy to see both teaching and administrative assignments. Faculty will instantly be able to see how much workload they have and how much has been allocated.

Help For
Administrators

TAMS simplifies the teaching assignment process by displaying each section that needs coverage and then producing a list of suggested faculty for the course based upon:

1) who taught the course historically
2) who asked to teach
3) who has teaching workload availability

Cost & Time
Savings

TAMS does this by maximizing your faculty utilization which in turn reduces the need and cost of adjunct faculty and part-time instructors.

Real-Time
Analytics

TAMS includes built-in and customizable reports.

Reports are available real time as data is entered ensuring teaching assignments, instructors, and course information is the most current and up-to-date.

I have had the privilege of incorporating TAMS at our University to organize and plan for faculty teaching assignments. We were early adopters of this technology, and I am continually impressed by its continued updates and frequent enhancements to the technology. The customer service is excellent! TAMS

TAMS has been instrumental in making course scheduling easier at the Orvis School of Nursing. It has helped to facilitate more transparent communication about scheduling, and improved equity in making teaching assignments.

TAMS has allowed me to engage in meaningful workload development and management. With almost 50 full-time faculty and just as many adjuncts, I used to spend hundreds of hours engaged in pencil and paper workload. What used to take me months to do, now takes me a matter of weeks. I can complete an entire year’s worth of workload assignments much more quickly and efficiently. TAMS is a wonderful product designed by those who know nursing faculty workload best.

Brian, Wes, and the team at TAMS are amazing. From the initial inquiry about TAMS, to working with the us for purchasing, and finally implementing TAMS, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The entire team is knowledgeable. The availability for assistance blew me away. Anytime we needed anything, all we had to do was email Brian or Wes and they were right there to help us. They were willing to meet with us as many times as we needed to make sure our entire team knew what they were doing. As a product, TAMS has made our job so much easier. We literally had staffing information in at least 3-4 different spreadsheets that would all need to be updated any time a change was made. I would highly recommend TAMS. I would never go back to the way that we used to do it.

About TAMS

Duke University experienced the same challenges as most colleges and universities when it came to managing the complexities of course scheduling and making faculty teaching assignments.

Over the years like most schools, Duke administrative staff had developed their own assignment management processes using a combination of institutional knowledge, electronic faculty surveys and manually updated spreadsheets. It was always a struggle to match faculty teaching preferences with the schedule of courses needed to meet student needs.

This process was cumbersome, inefficient and filled with operational headaches.
