Actually, two questions:

1) Do you really care who is teaching what classes at the intro-level? That is, do you schedule your Composition class by instructor or by day/time?

2) Would you care if a department moved you from one section of a course to another (at the same time, on the same campus) in order to redistribute students to ensure that the maximum number of classes "make"?

Here's why I'm asking. Every semester, university departments have to make decisions about when to cancel classes with only a few students in them. Usually, there will be a minimum number of students who have to be enrolled in order to make up the instructor wage, and so any classes with fewer than that number will be canceled, leaving the students to go enroll in something else. My argument is that if departments put "staff" on everything, students could be moved around to maximize enrollments (e.g. if one course at 9:00 on MWF has 25 students and another only has 7, the department would move 3 students over and allow both sections to make).

Do any of the students here have a comment on this? Would this bother you? I understand that sometimes students will enroll together in a class, or that a student may be determined to take a specific instructor, but beyond that, I can't see any objection that outweighs the greater good of more sections for more students and fewer cancellations.

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
