Buying out 2 courses instead of 1

So our teaching load is 3 quarter length courses. We were allowed to buy out 1 course, but the administration is now allowing 2 courses of buyout per year.

Has anyone done this before? Curious what the ramifications are down the track.


Sounds good to me. What would the downside be?

Not sure. I wonder how the administration will evaluate my teaching if I'm doing only 1/3 of the regular load.


If you do it regularly, you'd better have something compensatory to show for it — a greater publication rate, or whatever. And the agreement of your department head.
