  1. An Overview of Activity Insight TLI 2013 Janet Maschke and Brian Moore

  2. What is Activity Insight “AI”? Activity Insight is a database designed specifically for faculty to catalog professional work experience, educational background, service activities, professional development, and other accomplishments.

Benefits of Activity Insight (AI) • Easy access for DU faculty via DU website • User-friendly screens • Logical input forms to organize information • Built-in reports available to faculty • Save and print capability • “Available Anywhere” as it is web-based • Secure - logins required to access a record

  4. How is DU using the information? • Faculty data from “AI” is used to populate the faculty web page on • Updated vitas are easily compiled • Accreditation information on faculty may be pulled from “AI” • Reports by department and college

  5. Look at the extent to which your colleagues are using Activity Insight: In the last month, DU faculty have logged into “AI” 321 times as of 7-12-13

  6. Main Menu Categories “AI” is divided into the following categories: • General Information • contact info, biography • educational and work experiences • current position information • Teaching • Scholarship / Research • Service
