The Year 2020 started with the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Everybody was suffered, and it was true. 

 

Wenzhou-Kean University international faculty members were not exceptions. They struggled to come back to campus. And they stayed on the campus since their arrival on campus. 

 

In Winter, no international faculty could go outside of Zhejiang province of China without special permission. 

 

Most of international faculty should stay at Wenzhou area in the gloomy winter. WKU HR, then, suggested and organized "Faculty Retreat" programs to culturalize and socialize international faculty members.

From the 2020 winter Faculty Retreat, Dr. Choi develop himself as a "New Media" expert through recording, archiving, and disseminating 'Wenzhou, China, Culture and Tradition" learning.

His archives are in the below website.

Dear Colleagues:

Thank you for your commitment to delivering an excellent academic experience to our students during very challenging semesters.

 Kean University has adopted Interfolio as its faculty management system. Interfolio is a secure, online collaboration platform that provides customizable tools to manage all of the documents, workflows, data, committees, communication, and outcomes associated with review-based academic decisions. The first module being launched is Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty 180) which is an online platform for faculty activity reporting that will assist in accreditation, other reporting analytics, and feed into all faculty evaluation processes (Retention and Tenure, Promotion, A328, Sabbatical, and Lecturer Evaluations). Please carefully complete the Faculty Activity Reporting module.

 Some additional benefits of this module include:

·         the creation of a central repository for current and past teaching, scholarship, and service contributions

·         the ability to create a personal vita template

·         the opportunity to enhance collaboration among fellow faculty

Resources and Support

Please click on this link to access Faculty180. This link will also be posted on our Interfiolio web page under Academic Affairs in the future. This will take you to your Interfolio Dashboard, where you will find the Faculty180 tab on the left side. If you have issues signing in, please contact the Interfolio Help Desk at help@interfolio.com.

We will be hosting a virtual university-wide faculty training session for Faculty180 on Thursday, December 3, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can join the Zoom session using this link. If you cannot attend the training, the recording will be available on your Interfolio Dashboard.

Hi, Joy and Maria,

    I am trying to get familiar with the Interfolio and update my information. From the notice form VPAA office, the training of Faculty 180 is scheduled at 3:30pm on December 3, which is 4:30 am in China. WKU faculty and staff have to watch the recording of the training. The notice indicated that recording will be available in the Dashboard. I did not see a tab for training recording in my Dashboard. Will it be available after the training?

    What is the timeline for faculty to complete the Faculty 180?

    What platform will be used for lecturer evaluation that can pull information from Faculty 180?

 

 

The PURPOSE of Faculty Activity Report at 'CLOUD' service. 

 

Every year, Kean Faculty Members generally prepare more than 300 pages of Reappointment Application Packages that include Academic CV, Profile Information, Publications, and all relevant Faculty Activities. What if we can make the ARTP processes simple and easier at online with higher security? That is the idea of Kean's 'Going to Cloud' initiative of ARTP affairs. 

 

Aligning with the transformation to Online Faculty Activity Report for Appointment, Reappointment, Promotion, Tenure, Promotion (ARTP) and HR affairs, WKU CBPM Management, Global Business, and Marketing (MGM) faculty members proactively complying with the movement.

 

WKU VPAA Office guided us to complete the FAR Initial completion by End of 2020 Fall Semester ( December . 18, 2020) based on the communication with Kean USA. 

 

 

WKU CBPM MGM faculty members try to complete the initial inputs of FAR via Interfolio Faculty 180 platform by Dec. 18, 2020. 

 

Faculty Activity Report via InterFolio Faculty 180 Platform
 (Due, Dec. 18, 2020)

 

But the Due date for CBPM faculty members was postponed until the end of December 2020 at the CBPM faculty meeting on Dec. 08 because of time pressure of final grading.

Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR)

Also known as Faculty180, Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR) is Interfolio's module that collects validated faculty data sets for accreditation, compliance, and seeing the full picture of faculty contributions at your institution.

Activity

An activity is anything a faculty member does that can be tracked as a record of their career for data collection and use cases like promotion, tenure, or annual reviews, grant applications, or supplementing public facing profiles. Generally, this describes some type of teaching, scholarship, service, or professional development – the core activities of university faculty.

Form

A collection of sections to track data. There are two types of forms, profile and activity forms.

Profile Form

The Profile Form is the form that tracks personal information related to faculty user, such as contact information. Faculty control (most of) the data in this form through the FAR interface.

The Profile Form is always available under Profile on the navigation bar.

Activity Form

The Activity Form is the form that faculty enter their activities into during the year. It's configurable by an administrator at the client side, and is composed of sections.

There is one Activity Form that is always available under Activities on the navigation bar.

Section

A section is a type of faculty activity information that a university wants to track, such as teaching, scholarship, or service. Sections are made up of fields.

Activity Classification

Activity Classifications are additional metadata tags that allow units to supplement the fields with other data they want to track. They can be used in multiple sections and can be set to only show for particular units. These classifications can appear on reports or CV templates or be used to filter a report or CV template down to the desired information before it is generated. They are also used in accreditation reports. Examples of Activity Classifications include Committee Role, Book Type, and Scholarly Type.

Vita Template

Vita Templates display the output of the faculty's activity reporting. They are a collection of sections from both the profile and activity forms.

Initiated Activity Input Form

While faculty members always have access to the Activities form on their menu toolbar, Administrators may ask for updates periodically. To make that easy for faculty members, they initiate a period of input for a particular time period. When a form is used as part of this request for information, that is the initiated activity input form. It will be linked from the Faculty Member’s Action Items until it is either completed or the period for input has ended.

Faculty Account

Full/part time faculty and, if applicable, professional staff who teach, have access to input data on the Profile and Activity Input Forms. (This may also include Deans or other higher level academic administrative positions.)

Support Account

Access to assist faculty in the process of data input on the Profile and Activity Input Forms and/or to run reports. This type of account is intended for users who serve in a support role, such as a member of the Institutional Implementation Team, IT resources, administrative assistants, student workers, etc.

Unit Administrator

Unit Administrators will generally have access to particular administrative functions for their specific unit.

Administrative rights can be added to either a support account or a faculty account.

System Administrator

The highest level administrator is responsible for the database configuration and general upkeep. Software administrators have the top permissions in the system. 

 

 


Profile Input:

Please input all your personal profile information. 

 

(Profile example #1) Personal Information

 

(Profile example #2) Work Experience;  Degrees

 

 


 

Activity Input:
