    • Most significant progress made with: curriculum renewal/ development, program review, applied learning and e-learning

    • 81 % of faculty experienced barriers which included:

      • IT unable to support some ideas/software

      • Faculty overestimated the amount that could be accomplished

      • Too many meetings and committees

      • Learning curve associated with D2L

      • Cross-school integration not well planned

      • Availability of other faculty

      • Other duties (e.g. coordinator, semester start up, teaching)

    89% of faculty agreed the accountability framework was fair

    83 % of faculty believed requirement to be on-site Tuesday – Thursday was fair

    87 % of faculty provided a mid-term progress update to their Dean/Chair; 82 % provided a final progress update

    Mid-term check in with the Dean was very helpful

    • Only 52 % of faculty rated the Activity Template as easy to use

    • Comments ranged from "very easy to use and clear” to "fairly useless“ and “cumbersome”

    • Structure gave the Deans ability to track activity progress

    • Suggestions for improvement included:

      • Allow for more rows to be added and more space to type

      • Focus on outcomes rather than time (i.e. getting close to 44 hours per week)
