Design and Implementation of An Online CV Dossier System That Works for Faculty Members &b Administration
Abstract: Higher education faculty members are expected to establish a record of published research, ability to attract grant funding, academic visibility, teaching excellence, and administrative or community service and demonstrate their excellence in each of these areas as they prepare dossiers for annual reviews, tenure, and promotion. The purpose of this article was to explore how technology can help faculty members to achieve the expectations of higher education and establish an ongoing repository of faculty data and documentation. To accomplish this, the authors designed an electronic dossier system called cvfolio. This article describes the process of designing the cvfolio and piloting it with the faculty members and provides a discussion about the acceptance of this web application.
