eBook: The Top Ten Benefits of Using a Faculty Activity Reporting System
How will a faculty activity reporting system benefit your community college?
Full-time and adjunct faculty members are active—teaching courses, mentoring students, serving on committees, etc.—and their academic- and service-related activities play an integral role in the credibility and success of all academic institutions. Increasingly, faculty success and engagement correlates closely to the student experience and long-term student success. More and more schools are recognizing the value of online solutions that help both faculty and administrators make their work lives easier and more productive.
Administrators at community colleges spend a great deal of time and effort tracking, compiling, and reporting faculty activity data—a job that can be both monumental and tedious, especially when faculty credentials and activity data are collected and stored in several locations around campus.
One increasingly common approach throughout higher education is a dedicated faculty activity reporting system, which uses cloud technology and an easy interface to help colleges gather, validate, manage, and study data quickly and effectively.
In this free Interfolio eBook, we’ve organized the short- and long-term impact of such a technology into ten benefits, which will give you an idea of why your full-time and part-time faculty, leadership, staff, and budget will benefit from a faculty-focused platform for faculty activity reporting.
If you’re a provost, dean, faculty affairs director, institutional researcher, or chief business officer at a community college, then you’ll want to make sure you’ve considered the ten main points covered here.
