Digital Measures Navigation

Under the "Manage Your Activities" function, Digital Dossier captures your data within four sections:

  • General Information
  • Teaching
  • Scholarship/Research
  • Service

Much of the information is populated for you from University databases like personal /contact data and education from Human Resources or courses taught from Budget Office files. Other information, like publications, has been uploaded from the College’s Report of Publication for 2007/2008 – 2009/2010 academic years.

Each section (General Information, Teaching, Scholarship/Research, and Service) is driven by drop down menus for subcategories. For example, the Teaching Section contains these subcategories:

Teaching Section

For the Teaching Section, data from University sources are loaded into these subcategories:

  • List of Courses Taught in Resident Instruction
  • SRTE and Teaching Evaluation

Each subcategory provides an input page to capture your information for that section. You have the ability to input/edit your data not prepopulated from University systems. In addition, you have access to "Run Custom Reports" that have been preformatted with applicable layouts like your vita, summary of your published research, or your dossier.
