Implementing a Productive Faculty Data Hub
Wednesday, November 29 / 2:00-3:00 PM EST
How are research universities today making faculty activity reporting more manageable? For one great example, let’s look at Miami University in Ohio.
By adopting Interfolio Faculty180, Miami has in recent years transitioned their whole faculty activity reporting and faculty data management process into an online environment—substantially reducing redundant data entry, and freeing up a significant number of hours every academic year for all faculty and many staff members. You’ll get the story in this free webinar and Q&A with Miami’s James Oris, Associate Provost and Dean of Graduate School and University Distinguished Professor.
In the webinar, we’ll hear from Associate Provost Oris about the internal process by which Miami identified what they needed out of a faculty activity reporting platform, assessed the Faculty180 product, and got up and running. The institution is continuing to expand the usage of Faculty180 on campus to new user groups into next year.
Why this webinar?
Historically, the process of producing annual faculty activity reports been a time-consuming, labor-intensive process. But it’s almost 2018. Universities are increasingly recognizing the value of working smarter—rather than harder—when it comes to managing, distributing, and reviewing the data about faculty professional activities contained in these kinds of reports.
In addition, Miami University is part of Interfolio’s Product Advisory Committee (PAC), a group of experienced, forward-thinking leaders in academic technology that works with Interfolio to inform the kind of faculty technology available to higher education in the future. Read more about what we’re learning from the PAC here.
