Electronic Faculty Activity Reporting
Virginia Tech uses an electronic faculty activity data system to collect and manage information about research and scholarship, creative works, teaching, extension, outreach, and service activities. This system, based on Symplectic Elements, automates the production of annual faculty activity reports, promotion and tenure dossiers, and CVs, as well as department, college, and university level reports. The system also enables deposit and claiming of scholarly works in the VTechWorks institutional repository and will feed public web profiles using VT Experts.
Training for faculty is available through Virginia Tech's Professional Development Network and for departments on request.
