Gender should not make a difference to the teaching workloads and research outputs of academics. The research hypothesis explored in this paper suggests that teaching workloads and research outputs are the same for Faculty of Business and Law, Central Queensland University, male and female academic staff during 2005. Teaching workload is measured by the number of individual courses a staff member is responsible for (defined as course coordination), and any help they receive in managing these courses (defined as course managers). Research outputs are measured through DEST and funding (amount of money received and number of grants received). Overall, there are significant differences between gender and teaching workload (CC and CM), and between gender and research outputs (in terms of funding). There are no statistically significant differences between male and female academic staff and DEST points earned in 2005.
