problems
PROBLEMS
  • Our handbook sections are numbered to an excessive depth – it looks silly
  • Html version of the Handbook is not easily read. Insufficient white space between sections.
additional issues
ADDITIONAL ISSUES
  • Information on a given topic can be spread out through the handbook.
  • We do not yet take full advantage of hyperlinking and indexing.
  • Good examples at other universities have a more dignified appearance, utilizing attractive headers and modest use of color.
  • Accessibility standards are not consistently followed and should be.
proposed steps towards improvement
PROPOSED STEPS TOWARDS IMPROVEMENT
  • Study a cross-section of Faculty Handbooks at peer institutions (by December)
  • Derive a specification based on our needs and on best practices (by January)
  • Create one or more prototypes by transforming the current text to a new format. (by February)
    • Include hyperlinks in the web form (by March)
    • Include an index if practical (by March)
    • Create if possible, modular views (by March)
  • Present recommendation to GFA/Senate Apr. 20, 2004
    • Format change only – no content change.
  • During this process, call attention to inconsistencies and assist in resolving them.
