The Future Of Faculty-Centered Technology: A Faculty Information System Case Study with UCLA and Interfolio
Faculty are the group most central to the success of higher education: they are the drivers of institutional revenue, cost, prestige, and student success. Despite this, there has traditionally been very little technological investment in their success. Join the Project Director of UCLA's OPUS and the CEO of Interfolio to explore the benefits, best practices, and potential of faculty information systems—holistic, scholar-centered platforms that engage and promote faculty decisions, data, and career milestones from recruitment through tenure. We'll discuss the challenges and feedback that inform the research behind this emerging category in higher education technology, as well as tips for institutional adoption and preparedness.
